do not think so...more of a variable speed buffer than a sander

Why does the sander leave orbital scratches on my aluminum plate which l need to sand from 220-grit through 1500 grit?

Asked by Chris June 29, 2020

Answer

Its an orbital sander so any scratches are going to show as orbits...if you are getting scratches that are larger than the grit of the abrasive then you have other problems. Could be technique and user error,pressure speed of movement etc, or an abrasive that is not for the application/material or the lubrication you are using. Or all of the above.

Answer

The unit 7346SP is a orbital sander and the difference is just above the sanding pad, the DA sander features a weight that can be locked or unlocked. In locked mode, you get to remove more material much quickly. This is not a feature of a random orbital sander. So, you'll see a difference in the performance of these two sander types

Does a 5 inch pad fits on this sander

Yes! Well...For 5" pad(s) you'll need to change to a 5" backing plate. In fact it works better with 5" pads for detailing cars. Make sure you buy the hook and loop (Velcro) backing plate. I have found the Torq backing plates stay the coolest. Chemicalguys.com.

Customer review from portercable.com logo
When I got it it had major swirl marks scratches like someone washed it with a green scratchy pad. I found out the clear coat was real swift. Certain microfiber rags would scratch it. I’ve had this for about a year and it works like a champ. Definitely recommend to any diy’r this is all you’ll need

This polisher has more orbital power and won't burn your auto paint job. Haven't used it as a sander... doubt I will. There are several YouTube how to videos that show how to use it if you're interested.
