Is the an orbital or straight line sander?

Asked by Sawdust September 10, 2018

Answers

Straight line sander, an orbital will have a circular shape more than likely and it would be considered a random orbital sander as well. Dewalt produces an excellent orbital sander product if you are interested.

Is there a vacuum adapter for the Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander?

Asked by YSU65 November 3, 2013

Answers

HD sells a universal adapter which will adapt your 2" home down to this size. It is a multi adapter which you could cut at specific sections for use with specific diameters. I have purchased one in the past and cut it down for a different too, but i havent purchased one to cut down for this. Seems the shop vac's companies would include these types of adapters with their shop vac's, but they dont. Actually it is sad there just couldnt be an industry wide standard size for these smaller power tools, one adapter fits all type of thing.

I've just order this BO3710 sheet finishing sander, and also just purchased the corresponding 5" ...

Thank you for your question. Please see the 192108-A 3/4" x 10' Vacuum Hose which has a 3/4" inner diameter for connection to the tool, and a 1-1/4" inner diameter connection which fits most wet\dry vacuums.

Are there any advantages to owning both this finishing sander as well as the 5" orbital?

Asked by Tides February 27, 2016

Answers

The ability to use the cheaper sheets rather than the premade sized sanding disks is an advantage.

I should have bought this sander sooner to do my new hardwood floor. It is light weight and quiet when compared to the cheaper brand at HD, The best feature is the reduced vibration transferred to your hand. The sheet clamping system is well built and easy to use. If you need this size sander, buy it.

I like everything about this tool. It's not too big or bulky. The trigger handle has a good feel that allows for easy maneuverability. The sheets of sandpaper are easy to change out. It's not very noisy. Great tool to add to the collection.
