If I use 240 or 400 grit will it still leave swirl marks.

I need a fine finish sander for woodworking
Asked by: Anonymous
Depends on the material you're sanding, and if you leave the sander in one place for too long. The whole point of a random orbital is to hopefully reduce the chances of sanding marks, of course, too low of a grit, too much pressure etc.... CAN lead to swirl marks, but it's pretty hard to do, with a RO sander. 180 and up should be enough to get rid of swirl marks on any soft woods. Hardwood, I'd go up to 240 and see if it produces acceptable results, if not, you can always go higher.

3 Amp 5 in. Corded Random Orbital Sander is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 45.

Makita is my brand of choice, because they engineer quiet and user friendly products. Comfortable, effective dust extraction and a great price. The hook & loop sand-paper should be removed after the tool has cooled (as with all sanders using hook & loop) to avoid ruining the pad. I now own the 5" orbital and finish sander from Makita, I use them to refinish kitchen cabinets mainly and people are often astonished of the speed it can remove old stain and take it to its natural state. Love Them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is My Work Horse Sander We are renovating a 90 year old house and have refinished all the doors and trim throughout the house. I bought this sander after some extensive research. I have now used and abused this product for over a year now ( also purchased Model # BO4556K as a companion sander) and have been very please. This is what I consider to be my "work horse" sander. I use it for everything and have run it non-stop for countless hours. Some features I like: *it is simple (one speed, turn it on and go) *fits well in the hand and has rubber grip *sufficient power and does not bog down *Dust collection is decent - i like that the bag can be removed and a shop vac can be attached *switch is sealed in rubber - keeps dust out *Dust bag easy to empty Some things in which the product could be improved: *I dont care for the hard case (I don't use it) - would have preferred a bag (just my preference) *The dust collection bag will slip off sometimes After abusing the sander for 10 months I had wore out the edges of the sander pad (from forcing the edge into corners it could not go ;) ). I bought a replacement pad, which was easy to install. Still running like new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Hold, Works Well I had previously been using a Ryobi sander when that one quit in the middle of a small job. The Ryobi, while a great sander, had a large grip that was difficult to use. I'm sure it works great for the average handyman, but I'm a handywoman with stubby fingers. I knew I wanted one that felt comfortable in my hand for long periods of sanding. I picked up each sander and this one felt the most comfortable to me, while staying in my price point. After a few uses, I can attest that it is far more comfortable, and I no longer fear losing grip on it mid-job. It does a great job sanding and it does not get hot even after an hour of use. The case is an unexpected delight. It's so much easier to store the thing now with the case and I worry a lot less about making a mess when carting it around the house or throwing it in my car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from -Assembled in U.S.A.-- Amazing performance to boot! I've used a few other Makita sanders in the past, and always loved them. Low noise and vibration, efficient operation, and long life are always part of what makes them great. The 5" ROS is no exception. It's way quieter and easier to control than the others available near this price point, and the case has plenty of room for extra sandpaper. One of my favorite things about this sander is that it's assembled in the U.S.A.! Try to find that in any other sander in a big-box retailer! Go Makita!
