does this have variable speed

Asked by: 48433
no, but its random orbital, so the rate, direction and spin vary so it doesn't leave scratch marks...works very well.

Reasonable price and excellent performance on first project of building a mantle. It out performed my expectations for the price! I was aiming to plane/straighten the surfaces of old 8 ft scrap wood which had bowed slightly over time with a belt sander, which worked. But of course there remained very visible marks from the belt sander. This is my first orbital sander, but it did a great job at ridding the wood of any visible marks left by the belt sander without leaving noticeable marks itself. This up front work left the ripping and cutting easier with a good mantle in the end. I would recommend Porter Cable products to anyone!

The Porter Cable sander is like other Porter Cable brand tools that I own, good quality at an affordable price. It seems quiet and powerful enough to do the job it as designed to do.

I'm using it for small surface areas, mostly pine wood. I haven't had any issues with the dust collection bag blowing off like others have mentioned. Overall, a fantastic buy for the price, and my dad (a lifelong contractor/cabinet-builder) says he's got Porter Cable stuff that has lasted forever. Looking forward to that!
