The OP used the word "disc" in post #8, which wasn't made clear exactly what type of sander he was referring to. The reference I made was to his use of "disc", which I made clear by putting ROS in parenthesis, as you can see in my quote below.You and I must be writing about two entirely different disc and belt sanders. I just noticed that you referred to a random orbit sander (ROS)as a disc sander. Two entirely different products.
Thanks for bringing up the differences. I don't usually recommend air sanders, as many members don't have compressors that can support them.cabinetman said:I would start with a belt sander, as IMO it's more aggressive. It's more difficult to control than a disc type (ROS).
