Can I use it to remove stain from a wooden fence?

Asked by: TjLuis
Nope. Can't remove stain unless you remove like an 1/8" of wood.

Can I use it to sand drywall and if so do the pads work that come with it or do I need to buy other ones?

Asked by: Steve
Sanding drywall is what killed mine, dust got into the bottom bearing and it seized. The motor would spin up but it stalled as soon as the paper touched the wall. I would hook a shop vac to the back end if sanding drywall to keep the dust out of the sander.

What does 'random' mean in 'random orbital sander'?

What does 'random' mean in 'random orbital sander'?
Asked by: steelhead
Random orbit simultaneously spins the sanding disk and moves it in small ellipses. As long as you keep the sander moving, even a little, it will prevent swirl marks in the wood. you also do not have to pay attention to the direction of the grain.

2.6 Amp 5 in. Random Orbital Sander is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 336.

First one the switch started acting up so some 10 years later it's time for another one. As a small sander I have pushed it beyond it's intended use a few times. Meaning using it to sand down very hard epoxy with high abrasive grit (60) and still stays cool. If you are going to do a lot of sanding hook up a shop vac to it cause it can stir up the dust!

Strong enough to cleanup live edge, but not so strong that I can't hold onto it. The dust catcher surprisingly catches more saw dust then you would believe. Easy to find sanding pads to fit.

I bought this to sand a bench I've been building (WeekendWoodworker) after my initial purchase from a budget tool store was less than great. That discounted tool had no dust control and the only thing that ever seemed to change was the sanding pad becoming caked with dust, but the bench never looked like it got sanded at all. I bought this with the warranty (for $7 to add 2 years? that's a no brainer) and used it for the first time last night. Wow. This thing immediately gets results. Uneven boards are now in line, glue is removed quickly, and this thing ran like a champ. Definitely worth it for the regular $39 price tag. Get it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The cheapest product is the most expensive product... Bought this about a couple of months ago for a Christmas project. Very light use. Tonight while sanding a single 2x4 for another project, everything came loose, the rubber lip under the plate is falling off and the plate itself is now tilted. Sanding discs are wearing on the edges prematurely, then flying off. The sander is making an infernal noise, stalling and jumping around to the point it doesn’t feel safe to use. All my current tools are Ryobi, and have been fine consumer-level tools, except for this one sander... Very disappointed and inconvenienced as I still need to finish my small project and am unlikely to pay $30 worth of postage to ship back a $40 product. Just not cost efficient. The cheapest product is the most expensive product. Stay away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long term review I've had this sander for a little over 2 years. A bit late for a normal review. But I figured what's better than a long term review. I've had sheet sanders since a kid. This is my first random orbital sander. And I have used it for 100s of projects. The dust collector works great. It has more than enough power. I even killed it once with too much dust and just shop vac'd it and cleaned it and it came back to life. I'd like to say I treat it well. But I abuse it. Mercilessly. Best part is it's super inexpensive. I did however break it for good a week ago. Only because I left it out in the rain. And I am going to go grab another (or two) this week.

I had a nightmare scenario prepping my deck for stain. The previous owner slopped on countless coats and never re-stained properly, so I was faced with either doing another shoddy job or hand scrapping (best option over sanding) a whole 13'x15' deck. I decided to do it right and finally, after weeks of tedious work, I finished the hard part but needed to sand off the rough and un-scrappable spots. I picked this Ryobi because I love their battery tools (I LOVE my Ryobi lawnmower) but I went with corded on this tool due to the size of the job. I gave the whole deck a once over with this sander and some 80 grit pads. It quickly finished the job allowing me to get it stained literally in the nick of time for cold weather, saving my weeks worth of work. It took care of all of the splinters and my deck looks like a pro did it. It even did a pretty good job between deck boards. This sander doesn't kill your hands with vibration and it doesn't run hot even with extended use. Pads stick great, and I went through a LOT. The dust catcher is wonderful, but is a little hard to empty and will blow off if it gets too full. When I am done, I just brush the dust off of it with a dustpan brush. This sander is a great quality tool. I'm sure I am going to find plenty of other projects to use it for.
