Pantango … grab the disc on the one you want to buy and try to pull it off…. if it moves just a little bit, try the next one untill you get one that has a disk that is tight on the shaft. You will find that the price difference between the 12” spare abrasive disks and the 10” is quite a lot. Also the hassle of changing a 12 is more than a 10.
And the surface speed of the outer edge of the 12” WILL BURN wood very easily. My 10” burned wood on the edge all the time. After I got my 8” I realized how much better it is to sand with a 8” than a 10” so yeah I really like my 8” because it is almost impossible to burn wood.
