ND PG8 8" sander

Post by fallguy1000 » Wed Sep 04, 2019 10:00 am

Tried to find Reid yesterday, but probably was sheltering in place.

Do you fellas think I ought to buy 8" sander listed above for my fairing work?

We have a lot, lot of surface.

That's a lot of pad for one hand. I would suggest that you get the one with dust collection! :help:

do you have a link to one?
AA has the biggest sander I know of. You might try asking him about it.

I do not have an air compressor that is any where close to being able to keep up with an air sander so I know nothing about them. I do know that after I broke down and got a Fesstool sander/vac package I asked myself why I had not done it sooner. You still have enough sanding in front of you that springing for a top notch sander is a no brainer to me.

I'm sure it's already been discussed (or is disgust the right word?), but Miss Budget Item would be a good name for a boat. :lol:
