Will this smooth out textured walls that are painted and patched? I tried skim coat but am hoping this will work instead

Asked by: Janet
this will work for smoothing out walls. However, sanding paint can be very bad on lungs and depending on how old can have led. I would recommend buying a smoothing blade/knife or use a 3/4 paint roller. To use the paint roller, get some all purpose drywall mud and dump it into a bucket. Mix it up with a 1/2 drill or bigger . You must own or get a mixer paddle. once the mud is mixed, you will need to add water to the mud to "thin" it down. I usually add a lot of water and make the mud almost as thin as paint but not exactly. Thin but not watery thin. Then dip the roller in the bucket and start rolling it on the wall you want smoothed. Once covered with mud, put a fan on the wall and let it dry completely. Brush it down with sand paper and repeat steps. Eventually the wall will be smooth.

Why does it say Cordless in the Specs

Why does it say Cordless in the Specs
Asked by: Deejames
Have no idea to tell you the truth since the photograph of it shows a plug in. Would suggest plugging it in since it will pick up debrie much easier.

Was pleasantly surprised when it vastly reduced the time to complete the sanding project and especially reducing and eliminating the particles of drywall dust being produced. Wonderful product that does its job.

Exceeded my expectations for dust collection, which was excellent, but must be used with a shop vac with proper ‘fine dust’ filter insert. The Porter-Cable 7800 drywall sander is heavy at 8 1/2 pounds, so good upper body strength is essential for the user, especially for ceiling work.

I run a drywall business and am not disappointed with the performance of this tool. Cuts my sanding time down by 75%. It is a little heavy but over all you get used it & just have to build up your arms.
