Slick little tool
Just received this a few days ago (reason for only 4 stars) so i have not got to really put it through any hard use. This is perfect for doing spot repairs and sanding in tight areas. My main reason for getting this one was for doing axle housing prep for paint on my truck. I have a 90deg air sander but sometimes its a pain dragging the air hose around. I have been using the 2" roll and lock with mini flap dics to sand and prep. Next its redoing the head lights on a 02 trail blazer. I love the M12 line of tools and have a few of them but i am really loving this mini sander/polisher, i can see 5 stars with a little more time with it. For someone who does any repair work in the field this tool is perfect. For doing light grinding and cleaning up welds with the flap dics this should work great, no its not a grinder but for cleaning them up it should work great for pre paint. Just know you need to use a threaded pad holder but they are included. Now if you will only offer a 3" roll and lock holder. Thank You Milwaukee for another great tool.

Hello CPO,

Will 5/16-24 5" or 6" backing pads fit. If not, what is the spindle thread on this tool. Looking to use this tool for auto detailing.

Thanks,
Jem Ledda
Jem on Nov 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: One is not likely to find anything else to fit the oddball M9x0.75 thread short of a few taps and dies (for gunsmiths). This tool would have been much more versatile (read as huge increase in sales) if they had chosen to use a standard 1/4 inch collet system.
What is the RPM?
aNYsurfer on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Milwaukee 2438-22 has a sanding rpm of 8,300 and a polishing rpm of 2,800
Where will it ship from and what will be the shipping method?

Thanks

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
