What a piece of junk. Arrived with the back window rattling around inside. Re-glued the window to avoid having to return it and now it has a horrible rattle above 2000 rpm. Some times you don't get what you paid for. Thought I was getting the best but this is not the case. The construct is poor. Even the spinning disc is glued onto the motor. Looks like some student built it as a home project, not a commercial product. Also the motor gets very hot after a short period of time. I can't imagine the 9 volt battery will last very long at all. Avoid this product.
