Re: [bolger] Re: Random Orbital Sanders
- I agree, I use a makita belt sander I found in an industrial bin outside of
a powertool repair shop. Apart from a missing drive belt cover the thing
runs like a charm and mows down anything in its way. A gentle touch is
required though, and its never a good idea to start it while it is sitting
on the job . I use 40 grit belts.

makes short work of tough jobs. It leaves a good surface that can be fine
finished with an orbital sander. Use the roughest belt you can find, 50 or
