The Restorer - Renewing, Resurfacing

The RESTORER Multi-Surface Restoration System was invented and patented by Robert Kundel Jr. Originally designed for use at Kundel Industries for removing rust and scale from beams and pipe prior to painting Robert soon realized the tremendous potential of the tool when he was able to use it at home for DIY wood working and metal working projects without clogging or gumming up the sandpaper. The Restorer became the discussion of many power tool manufacturers and after 7 years he was able to sign a brand license deal with Stanley Black & Decker. The Porter-Cable Restorer is available on Amazon and sold at Lowe’s and Hartville Hardware from $99 to $149 depending on the kit.

The Good News Retreat Center

The Call, placed upon Robert's life in 2012 , is to minister to ministers through the creation of a one-of-a-kind non-proft retreat center is dedicated to the restoration of pastors worldwide and will be funded by the proceeds from the "Restorer" tool. Robert is looking to locate "The Good News Retreat Center" in the Charlotte, NC area which is an ideal location for a year round retreat center. The tool according to Robert was divinely inspired and aptly named Restorer, just as Jesus is our Restorer and in the business of restoration. Ironically enough Jesus was a carpenter and the Restorer is a carpenter’s tool. Proceeds from every purchase will go directly to fund this desperately needed ministry.

Global Restoration

Infrastructure decay is on the rise creating a great demand for cost effective solutions to maintain existing structures like bridges, pipelines, ships, railroads, buildings and more. These resources all play an vital role in not only our daily lives, but our economy as well. Corrosion continues to eat away at the investments made around the world at an annual cost of more than $1 trillion dollars. The U.S. military alone spends more than $23 billion dollars annually dealing with the effects of corrosion and by developing products geared toward this purpose it allows us to slow down the aging process of what our forefathers have fought so hard to create and establish here and around the world.

Restorer Testimonials

James Koden | RewT Customs
Owner / Fabricator

I have been waiting a few month for this tool to come out, So when I saw that it was in stock at my local Lowes this morning, I got dressed and went up and bought it and a bunch of sanding and stripping drums. Been using it all morning and absolutely love it! strips rust and paint leaving a great surface for finishes.. I have finally found my new favorite tool for my custom car business!

Kevin Tetz | TV Personality

"The new Porter Cable Restorer is a game changer. It performs the functions of several other tools, but does things that no other tool can! A revolutionary new design and a surprisingly low price equals a home run!"

Rich Schley
Retired Tool & Die Maker / Hobbyist

If you are looking for the perfect sanding tool, the Restorer is it! When sanding wood, the removal rate is exceptional. The balance and feel when you pick it up is so natural you just know that they really spent time in development. I can't wait for the other options to be available. It is so light, I can use it with one hand. I think I'll buy another, just to have a spare.

Chris Rodenius - Tool-Rank
Owner/Professional Tool Review

Overall I am very impressed with the Porter-Cable Restorer. Not only does it work as advertised, it seems to be solidly built, has plenty of power, and the sanding drums are of good quality. At a price of only $99, I think the Restorer is a bargain.

Jill Gennari | Homeowner

Recently used this to refinish an antique table. I found it surprisingly easy to use and didn't make a mess! I already recommended it to 4 people.

Jonathan Bucklew | Seventeen20
Design + Fabrication

“I’ve found so many uses for this powerful little hold-in-your-hand drum sander; everything from uniformly finishing steel to sanding curved wood seats and backs. And you’d be hard pressed to find a better tool for creating and smoothing out free-form/live edges on large table tops. Restore your creativity with the new Porter Cable Restorer.”

Matt Gennari | Gennari Consulting
Owner / DIY Guy

This product is awesome. It weights less than 5 lbs and you can use it with one hand if you choose. Its very versatile and can accomplish what a belt sander, finish sander or grinder can do all in one.

Ned Cox | Innovative Sales
President / Owner

The Restorer is one of the most innovative products to hit the market in years. Its powerful, lightweight, and extremely versatile. I find a new application for it almost every time I use it.
