I’m a firm believer in the “get what you pay for” adage. I bought the Festool sanders and dust extracter a couple of years ago when I was bidding a project to refinish some tabletops inside a restaurant. When I realized the veneer was too thin to refinish, I persuaded the owner to simply have new tops made.
I’ve since used the Festool sanders for a variety of projects and really like the way they perform. I’m all for minimizing the dust I’m likely to suck in while woodworking and the Festool sanders do an incredible job of keeping the surface clean.
The Rotex handles all the tough removal jobs and does a great job of fine sanding large surfaces once you get the hang of its action. The rectangular RS400EQ is perfect for face frames and getting into tight corners. I’ve noticed recently that lots more folks are now selling Festool and there’s one fundamental reason – you truly get what you pay for…
