You have a few options, if you have finer belts/wraps for your drum sander, sand it to a higher grit 180 or 220 then use your random orbit sander. If you have a low angle smooth or jack plane you can use them with a sharp blade set at a low angle. A dual action sander is what I have found works the best finally finishing with a traditional random orbit sander like you currently have. I have a Rotex 125 (expensive I know) but it has saved my can more than once. Bosch makes a 6” model for about half the price of the Festool. He who dies with most tools wins. Good luck
