Okay, looking for a dual mode 6” sander. My wife has a “vintage” store/business and often needs a ton of material taken off ancient wood. Personally I would really appreciate having the ability to quickly mow down material on my own woodworking projects. Thirdly I appreciate a finely polished car(waxing and polishing is zen for me) so these three are on the list. Bosch 1250, Makita 6050j, Festool RO150.
I own products from all three. I can find a ton of reviews on Festool, some on bosch, none on Makita. Anybody have any experience with the new Makita?
They all seem comparable to the Festool and/or beat festool on paper. However, 600 for a sander is a tough nut to swallow. The Makita is $319 from acme tools. The Makita for price and specs seems to be in the middle of the two. The hole pattern on the Makita seems to be similar/same as the festool for the sandpaper.
I’m not looking to be sold on the festool, there are so many reviews already and if I had the cash I would. I’m wondering if anybody has used all or some of them especially the Makita since there isn’t anything out there on it and it seems to be pretty dang similar.
Thanks in advance
