How to Select an Orbit Diameter
1/8" and 3/16" orbit diameters have long been considered industry "standards". These are the tools to buy for "general purpose" use.
A 3/32" orbit is extremely small and rarely used. This would be a specialty tool for very fine finishing applications.
5/16" is a high productivity, large orbit, that is ideal for heavy material removal and polishing applications. These tools are seeing renewed popularity for their ability to level a surface quickly.
