It should be. You could use a hot air gun and scrape if you have a lot to remove.

How well does this sander do in tight spots and in corners ?

Asked by: Tomski
I thought the sander did great on corners but had to finish in conjunction with a sheet sander. It also did brilliant going around curved areas and narrow round window mouldings.

3 Amp 5 in. Corded Variable Speed Random Orbital Sander with Dust Bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 76.

I am pleased with it. It has done well removing material quickly and also creating a very smooth finish, depending on the grit of the paper used and the speed setting. No problem with swirl marks. It is pretty quiet and, importantly, it does not transmit much vibration to the user's hand. (My previous random orbit sander from another major tool company created too much hand fatigue.) The dust bag collects quite a bit of dust but, like any of these, you really can't say that operation is dust-free. Overall, I have no complaints and I am happy with the purchase.

Used this one to sand the old finish off my deck, I did have to start out on the places where the old finish was heavier with a belt sander. I bought one sander just like this one which didn't have the extra handle after several uses the sand paper didn't hold on it very long so I exchanged it for this model and haven't had any additional trouble. It works great attached to my shop vac for cutting down on the dust and making disc last much longer.

Take a longer to get to that tingly hand. It has plenty of power. The sanding disks I buy have the holes in the same places as the sander. The dust collection works very well. In fact, remember to check it often. It fills quick which is a testament to it working.

The Makita has a slower variable speed that I like. Other then that both are good sanders and do a good job. Dust collection on both seems about the same. Mikita was about $20 more.

Works well.The dust bag collects most of the dust.I was hopping there will be no dust in the house while using this sander with a dust bag.Unfortunately the sander collects the dust and also makes LOTS of dust if you sand a wall that was patched,but there is less dust if you sand a butcher block.

Started an exterior door stain and varnish project that was a disaster. But purchased the Makita random orbital sander today and recovered my exterior door project. This is an excellent sander. My first random orbital sander so I can't compare to other products. It did produce a lot of dust but I also emptied a full bag of sawdust twice so the vacuum does work well and the bag never popped out. I bought this model particularly for the handle which allowed me to apply the right amount of pressure to my door project and prevent walking for my small hands. It was easy to turn the knob mid project to get into corners. I love that it has the depressor to run the motor, as opposed to an on/off switch. The variable speed was extremely helpful several times. The optional cruise control button is a nice touch. I used it with multiple grits of the Diablo pads from 60grit up to 220grit and my wood went from coarse to shiny! I was between a Bosch or this model and I'm SO happy with my selection. Can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy sander I am so happy I purchased this sander. There was very little vibration so your hand didn't go numb! My door came out really smooth after taking off three or four layers of paint. Highly recommend this product.
