Topic tags/keywords: sander straight line orbital sanding planer flatten question jointer plane

Does anyone have any experience with using a straight line sander in place of a hand planer? I thought this might be an option to help level boards and was interested to see if anyone has given this a try.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I’m not sure what you’re asking.

Are you asking is pneumatic auto body straight line sander
can substitute for a hand plane?

Yes. I am curious to learn how effective, if at all, a straight line sander is at flattening boards.

Fughettaboutit! Too much work, dust, and time. You would be 1000x better off finding a nice long jack plane (hand plane)
