« Part 4: Finishing Question Part 5 of Quarter Round Display Shelf series Part 6: Many Firsts »

I have everything together now (pictures to follow) and was working on the finish sanding phase and my trusty ole PC 333 Type 4 ROS quit on me. This project has presented mutiple challenges but this is the first tool that it has claimed. Argh, off to the orange box to get me a replacement.

First stop though is a look though the reviews here on LJ’s of course!

The only way your tools won’t wear out is not to use them so much,, lol

sIKE, I am sure that you did not have a new ROS budgeted when you started this project but this sounds like as good an excuse as any to buy a new tool. But, after browsing the tools section, I hope that you can limit yourself to just a ROS. :)

Well back from Lowe’s. Got the Bosch that GarK has and used it already the dust collection is much superior over the PC but it is a tab bit heavier. Show you what I was working on in a bit.

Wish it was a nice new router but alas it is a Random Oribital Sander ;)
