Nice! Is it slightly spring loaded or just set at height?

The Head is Spring Loaded and the tension can be adjusted with stronger or weaker springs.

So far the medium tension springs is working well but a different spring might work better for polishing

Still testing for best spring load for the Grit being used. I am having custom paper being made that will help it float better over the edges.

Designed to work with and .625 Collet Holder, Non ATC or ISO 30 , cat 40 or HSK if your spindle can hold a .625 tool it will work.
