Flexidisc is a system based on an exciting 5" (125 mm) disc sander attachment which fits in your drill, and does not jump, skitter or scuff. This is due to a simple but highly efficient flexible shaft which eliminates vibration. It gives full control without the need for effort or expertise when presented full face to the job surface. A top quality result is assured.
Flexidisc uses 'slap-on peel-off' Velcro type discs which are coated with a super-tough material called Corundum, (close to diamond for hardness). The discs are re-usable and cleanable - each one will do the work of at least 100 conventional discs. They cope comfortably with a wide range of materials from soft plaster to iron and steel, including slate, concrete, marble etc. They also transform a rough-sawn plank to a polished finish faster than any other conventional sander. And, because they generate very little heat, they retard over-heating during grinding, and safely sand G.R.P., old paint etc without melting the material.
Using the same 'slap-on' system, polish is easily applied over any size area, using the foam sponge, whilst an oversized re-washable polishing cap effortlessly completes the job. You can very quickly polish a car, boat or caravan.
The cleverly designed Uniclamp allows the unit to be clamped to any convenient table at whatever angle the user desires for grinding purposes. This system is used extensively for professional re-sharpening of expensive hairdresser's scissors, and many other applications.
Meanwhile the general purpose Unisharp guarantees any drill owner fantastic results for knives, scissors, garden shears etc, and repays its cost on the first pair of shears re-sharpened.
For grinding welds and rust, Flexidisc provides a good substitute for an angle grinder. It is however purely a surface grinder, not a cutter.
Flexidisc's role as a glass grinder is of greater use than first appears. Because of its docile nature it can be safely be used in one hand while presenting a drinking glass full face-on with the other. Chips on the rim of your favourite wine-glass are easily ground out, leaving it perfectly safe to use, with very little visible evidence of repair.
Flexidisc sands down protruding nails and screws which are un-necessary or impossible to extract, flush with the finished surface.
