Princetel's PF180 series hand-crank fiber connector polisher is an award winning field polishing machine. It does not require power or battery and therefore is ideal for oil and gas environments where spark is prohibited. The machine can also be a perfect solution in a lab. There won't the frustrating moment when power adapter is missing.

The machine can be transformed into an electrical polishing machine with a powered screwdriver (not included). The driver provides fun and more consistent speed. When power is not available and/or battery is depleted, the hand-crank feature comes in extremely handy. Adjustable force ensures consistent finish for a wide variety of connector types and the number of connectors in the fixture.
