It’s me again. Are you enjoy the weekend? Last Saturday is the huge day with me. I got the big project in making a great boat to a frequenter. He wants a very sturdy and big boat so that he can use it for his fishing hobby. I was really exciting when receiving this project until I found there was problem in sanding step. Do you know what is it? Well, it wastes too much time. OMG. I spent more than 2 days and it still not finished. After all, I research and read the great belt sander reviews at www.beltsanderhq.com page. Then I pick my Makita 9903 various speed dial belt sander, which made me feel really comfortable and happy because my trouble was solved as quickly as ever. So, here I want to show you guys some tips in picking the right sanding tool. And don’t miss it. It’s really useful!
– What features make the good sanding machine?
I know there’re a lot of technical information to follow every time you find an electric tool. However, these are just the meaningless numbers. For me, the main and most essential point why selecting a machine is how it make you feel comfortable to use and how long is it durable.
Therefore, in choosing the good sanding machine, unlike others people, I usually look at the weight, the model and component. I understand that I need a very handy sander, which can easy to hold and operator. The quick set up also big advantage. The component have to ensure this machine can last long for many years but not broken in several times. Because I know what I really need, so it doesn’t take much time from me. So, if you understand clearly which machine you are looking for, the choosing step will be simple than ever.
– What kind of job you can do with each sanding tool?
Because there is numerous model of sanding tool, you will want to know their function as well. I will share what I researched in last week. The sanding machine has 4 main classes and each of them provides the different benefits for users:
+ Disc sander: this is the basic sanding tool you can found in every woodworking shop. It has the stationary form with the main abrasive part is the disc. This sander can solve almost woodworking job by provides the medium, stable speed and power. Its weakness is not strong enough for rough material and not mobility.
+ Belt sander: the belt sander is one of my favorite tools. It has unbelievable speed and power that can beat any of loaded. It provides two type: the portable and stationary for different demand. It absolutely can replace your old disc sander model with higher benefits. The only disadvantage of this sander is you have to have the certain skill in sanding because the high speed and powerful strength easily ruin you stock.
+ Orbital sander: this is the opposite side of the belt sander. The orbital sander is very lightweight and can solve the light surface with low speed and power. It makes sure to just remove the very enough and slightly on your materials surface without damage anything. The very good sanding tool for finishing the furniture.
+ Random- orbital sander: as same as the orbital sander, the random- orbital sander has handy and safe in sanding. The different point is it has round pad while the orbital sander has square pad. This is the combine in medium feature between belt sander and orbital sander. Not too strong, can solve anything in common, that what you can expect from this type of sander. Very safe choice for everyone.
