ORBITAL STATION is a product designed by a cabinetmaker to make the task of operating a 5" palm-grip orbital sander more efficient. The holder allows the user to secure the sander while leaving both hands free to reposition material. The only time it's necessary to turn off your sander is when changing discs or the sanding operation is complete. The Orbital Station is made from heavy-gauge steel and has a durable powder coat finish. It has keyed screw holes for mounting directly to a work station in two positions. It also can be quickly mounted in a vice or secured to a temporary work table with the use of a handscrew and bar clamp. The spring steel yoke adjusts to accept nearly every brand of 5" palm grip sanders, including many of the quarter sheet models. The Orbital Station retails for $35.95, plus shipping and handling.
