- DeWalt D26456 5-Inch Low Profile Random Orbit Sander
- Brand: DeWalt | Category: Sanders
I’ve used my new sander on about 15 cutting boards so far. All hardwood.
6 position variable speed.
84.97$ at Amazon
Grits, 60, 80, 120, 240.
I like the way it feels in my hand.
I like the way it feels on the wood.
I love that it stops quickly so I can put it down.
Has a hard time spinning though 60g.
I guess the con isn’t fair of me, nothing really spins good with 60G on it.
I only use 60G because my planer has a catch on one of the blades and i’m too lazy to fix it, so I need a heavy grit to sand out the line quickly.
It’s nothing special, but it’s one more sander for me. I use sanders more than just about any tool in the shop.
Porter cable sells the exact same sander (dif color) for 20$ more, so stay away from that one.
