I just bought one of these sanders. It works great but I dont like the stick on sanding disks. Is there a base for hook and loop sand paper?

Asked by: Jack
The 6" sanding pads that orbital sanders run are all standard, if you go to a automotive paint store you should be able to get a 6" hook and loop pad for it and simply unbolt the old one and attach the new hook and loop pad. I don't know about this sander but most come with a special flat wrench that you use to take the sanding pad off, if this sander didn't come with one you'll have to make one or find a place you can buy one. Word to the wise the hook and loop sandpaper usually costs more than the plain sticky back paper.

What is the orbital pattern 3/16?

Asked by: Jack
3/16" orbit is fine detail sanding. Medium detail (less fine/ more rough) sanders are 5/16" orbit.

6 in. Low Vibration Palm Sander is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy on your hands and arms, low vibration I got this to replace an older electric disc sander that I have used for refinishing furniture. What I like so far with this Husky 6 IN. LOW VIBRATION PALM SANDER is that it is not heavy, and especially like that the vibration is seriously less than my old sander. I guess it's all what you get use to. This Husky sander is much quieter too. I will be refinishing a table that belonged to my grandmother so this will make the task much easier. Comes with a 2 year warranty. States that vibration is up to 50% less than conventional palm sanders. Rotates at 11,000 RPM. Weighs only 1.81 pounds and has adjustable speed with built in air regulator. Requires an air compressor output of 4 cfm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who would have thought! I really like this sander. First of all, as advertised, the vibration is much less than any electric sander I have and less noisy. The finish is stellar given that the rotation is much more controlled by the user. Love being able to use the lever to adjust the speed of the spin. I was working outside so I did not use the ability to attach a dust collector. These are not cons per se, only my preferences. I don't like pressure sensitive sanding discs. I'd rather use the velcro backed ones so I had to buy discs just for this item. Also, since it runs on air, you need to make sure you have a compressor with you, and thus, if working high up, a lot of hose. In a shop environment though, this is a great tool to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sander I really like this random orbit palm sander. It is very easy to change the paper. The actuator is in a very convenient spot. I'm very impressed with how comfortable this sander is to use. There is very little to no vibration felt in your hand when using this tool. I've used this sander on wood, plastic and metal, and it works equally well on all these materials. Quality tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as butter I've used a number of air palm sanders before and this one is surprisingly smooth to use. It's not crazy powerful, which is actually a great thing. This is more of a finish and smoothing sander, not a stripping sander. But it will cut through body work and filler like crazy and do it smooth as glass. It's also lightweight and really easy on the hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice what a nice tool to have for sanding and polishing attaches nicely to hose adaptor for a nice job. It has smooth design, heavy duty, study and easy on the hands for long duration work with Low vibration and noise. My big project renovating my old 5th wheel rv this tool will be absolutely a blessing to have for the wide ranges of sanding needs id recommend a 6 plus gallon compressor to run it consistently

I have found this to be a quality sander with high end features at an affordable price. The composite housing is great and keeps the weight down I also like that it has a built in air regulator. I know it is not to clear but I have went by the internet info and the manuals you can download from the internet that say the motor is oil free and I have not oiled it, the oil free motor was one of the things I found appealing about is because oil can come thru the exhaust and is your enemy when it gets on the car you are sanding because if you don't get it all off it will put fisheyes in your paint, oil less motors are typically something you only see in high end sanders. I also like that it only requires a claimed 4CFM, I have a 60 gallon compressor rated at 12CFM which runs it easy, my last orbital sander was a total air hog and required 11CFM and although my 60 gallon compressor would run it fine it would only take a couple of minutes before the pump would kick on and although I could keep running it without running out of air the compressor pump would run the whole time unless I stopped and waited for it to build pressure back up. My most recent orbital sander before this one was a cheap HF sander and it is a decent sander but even as a cheap sander it still cost $50 so this sander is not much more and has the oil free motor which is a high end feature, we will see how it lasts never being oiled and if it ends up breaking down at least it has a 2 year warranty I can fall back on. I have high hopes that this will be a durable sander but only time will tell, I can say that I would recommend this sander.
