    WEST CHESTER, Pa., September 2007 -- Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, today introduced a new 1/4 sheet orbital finishing sander that is the smallest sander in its lineup and is ideal for sanding and fine finishing of painted and unfinished wood surfaces.

    Metabo FSR200 Orbital Finishing Sander

    FSR200 Orbital Finishing Sander

    The FSR200 orbital finishing sander features 11,000 orbits per minute at an orbit size of 1/16 inches. Using heavy grit sanding discs, the tool offers the power to remove wood and paint; however, when equipped with a fine sanding paper, it is perfect for wood finishing. The sander's 1/4 sheet hook and loop pad accepts Metabo's wide assortment of pre-punched hook and loop sanding paper. A punch is also included for use of regular sandpaper, and its quick-change feature enables the sandpaper to be easily changed.

    Metabo's new sander has a 1.8 amp motor and a soft, rubber-coated gripping surface that reduces vibration and enhances user comfort. The integral dust collection system that comes with the tool uses a highly efficient, washable Intec filter that reduces the need for frequent filter replacement.

    The FSR200 weighs 3.4 lbs. and has a dust-sealed switch, which lengthens the longevity of the switch by preventing the entry of dust.
