Smaller, lighter, more manouverable, MORE POWER
& MORE TORQUE than the previous SPEC 1300 "Detailer"
The SPEC Model 1300B Series II "DETAILER"
is a powerful, versatile "MINI" DRUM type polisher with
a unique, easily removeable & "inflatable"
rubber drum, for use on smaller parts & areas. Perfect for
use where the large SPEC Machines are simply "too big"
to use. EXTREMELY VERSATILE. Easy to convert to many configurations
using several readily available "off the shelf / standard"

The SPEC1300B SERIES
The SPEC Machine hand held pneumatic
SERIES II "Detailer" is the perfect polishing tool for
work in areas the larger pneumatic drum type polishers can't get
into. The air inflated drum, eliminates "edge cutting",
"swirl" & "polishing" marks, creating
a flawless finish. Best of all, it uses the same high quality
pads the 5 inch "Drum" polishers use, but in a 4"W
size, (SPEC54C (Cotton) or SPEC54Y (Yellow) Synthetic BLEND. As
an added bonus, the inflatable drum can be easily removed and
replaced with any standard 6 or 8" cotton polishing wheelwith
a 5/8 or 1/2 center, (you can "stack" up to 2 or 3 wheels,
depending on type). This gives unrivaled versatility and most
importantly, the SPEC Machine "Detailer" SERIES II produces
high torque, at low RPM, allowing increased productivity and results.
Important to note: Similar
units, available on the market, operate in the 3000 - 6000 RPM
range and at lower torque outputs. The SPEC "1300B Series II "DETAILER"
operates @2600 rpm MAXwith higher torque output. This allows
for, less stress on the polishing pads and parts, and provides
more forgiving and exacting operator control.
Model 1300B SERIES II "DETAILER"
is the perfect tool for engine inlet, vertical stab, brightwork,
surface "repair" and final "spot" polishing
Improvements on the SPEC1300B
SERIES II are:
- 10% Power increase. Uses a new
1.0 hp Sioux Industrial Air Motor (previous unit was rated
@ .9 hp)
- Uses a new "HD" (Heavy
Duty) #554 Drum. (20% thicker than previous, for improved durability
- Lower RPM with (30%) higher torque,
(2600 RPM vs 3200 RPM on previousl SPEC 1300)

This will allow for very
rapid heavy oxidation & scratch removal, surface repair
or "surface texturing" (depending on type choosen) on
larger surfaces, (primarily bare metals). Affords incredible operator
control of material removal in order to prepare the surface for
quick "polishing" operations. Much quicker, less costly
and far more productive than orbital sanding. Allows "texturing"

on Alcan® XTRAL 738 Alloy on a bulk fuel tanker,(developed during shipping from China to Malaysia).In this configuration,
the "DETAILER" is able to generate the "heat" required. The "polishing marks" from this operation are then removed with the
"DETAILER" in the "DRUM" configuration or in this case,the SPEC "SA" Industrial polisher.
