The Hi-Tech Diamond Slant Cabber is a affordable and uniquely-angled, flat-lap machine designed to improve visibility and allows you to sit, instead of stand, while you work. Fill the role of a cabber and a flat lap in a small space!
The machine is manufactured for use with 6" or 8" disc and pad diameters with a 1/2" arbor and powered by a 1/4 hp, heavy-duty, ball bearing, DC motor. This motor is variable speed so you can work at whatever pace you desire, delivering speeds from 800 rpm to 3,400 rpm. This portable machine can be used at home, in a smaller workshop or in your RV, this quiet machine won't disturb others around you. It's lightweight, rustproof and impact-resistant, making it even easier to travel with.
The coolant reservoir holds about a quart of water and supplies coolant to prevent heat buildup while you work and removes dust particles so you don't inhale any harsh chemicals. The innovative, durable water tube has a water control valve so you can control the water flow while you work. The black splash guard keeps water off you so you don't get soaked while you work. Cleanup is as simple as it gets: Just flush the bottom water reservoir with clean water and you're ready to work again. If you prefer a horizontal work surface while sitting or standing, check out the Hi-Tech Diamond All-U-Need which offers similar functionality in a forward-facing orientation.
