I've often come across instances where a minature orbital buffer would be very useful. Usually they come in large double hand versions. Much too large for my at-home projects. Example: I frequently need to polish some plastics. I have the compounds and solutions to do it by hand, but an orbital buffer is suggested in the product instructions. This is great for automotive tail lights and all....but what about watches, ipods, and sun glasses where it is impratical to use a 6inch buffer pad? Another use would be to wax/polish/deoxidize model cars, shoes, wood, and other small painted surfaces.
The device could screw on the front mount and the housing could have a ring gear inside while the dremel drive shaft would drive the inner gears to create the orbital action. I would guess buffer pads would be 1/2 - 1 inch in diameter. Maybe even 1/4 inch would be useful. Of course small micro fiber cloths would be a great choice for the "pad".
