Getting the factory carborundum wheels off was a real chore though. First of all they must have been installed by a gorilla with an over torqued pneumatic wrench. Not only were they TIGHT, they must have been installed while the paint on the washers was still wet-- I had to chisel the washers off the wheels and the paper labels were stuck to them.
I like the fact that the RPSs can get as low is 850. The speed adjustment is quick and easy.
