Can I use this to sand my wooden front door? Does the fact that it's orbital make a difference in going against the grain? I've only used the type that uses sandpaper. What do you recommend ?
Asked by: gypsysoul
Best way is to start with a good belt sander to remove the surface finish. Then work with the orbital sander to smooth out.

Will this be able to sand a front entry way deck. About 200 s.f. Or do i need something bigger

Asked by: BrandonM
This will work, however something with a larger diameter sanding surface will get the job done faster.

Can this sander be hooked to my rigid shop vac?

Can this sander be hooked to my rigid shop vac?
Asked by: KCG
Don't hook it to any vac. It will destroy the sander. A design flaw exists where static build up from the vac fries the switch and ruins the sander. Learned the hardware. Rigid wouldn't honor the warranty even though mine was only three months old. The charged me $19 to 'evaluate it'. That was four weeks ago. No word on it yet.

does this use 5 hole or 8 hole hook and loop sandpaper?

does this use 5 hole or 8 hole hook and loop sandpaper?
Asked by: geneingeorgia
8 hole (though the sander only has 4 large holes that match the disks)

5 in. Random Orbital Sander with AIRGUARD Technology is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 669.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this sander just a couple of weeks ago and have only used it for one project so far. ... I purchased this sander just a couple of weeks ago and have only used it for one project so far. It did hold up to three hours of almost constant sanding though without getting overly hot or cutting out. The filter bag works well and it has a smooth, easy rotation of the sanding pad. It is the first time I have had a variable-speed sander, so I am still learning how to best use that feature.

I bought this sander about two years ago, and I don't use it professionally--just hobby stuff around the garage. I don't abuse it, and I use it as intended (flat against the surface, only the weight of the sander and the suction from the vacuum keeping it against the wood). The sander started squealing loudly on startup and intermittently during usage, so I took it to get repaired. Two months later, and $30 out of my pocket, it turned out to be a bearing, which isn't covered by the "lifetime" warranty. It's now been 6 months since that repair, and I've got the same issue as well as intermittent power issues where the sander will be operating at full speed and suddenly drop to about half power for a few seconds before ramping back up to full speed. Again, I was told that "wear items" are not covered under the warranty. I've had sanders that have gone for years without bearings acting up, and I can't seem to get much more than 6 months out of this one. Just buy a different brand.

These sanders have a issue with dust and or heat causing the random orbital bearing to freeze and or intermittently lock up causing the pad to spin like a grinder. This is very problematic for your project, causing swirl marks and digs.. I use these with a vacuum. Milwaukee not stocked any longer.
