Electric Sander recommendations 

Hey folks,

I need to buy a new electric sander for some home projects and would like to also use it for guitar building. Anyone have a good recommendation?

Thanks.

What kind of sander? orbital, palm, belt? electric or pneumatic?

I have an electric Porter Cable orbital sander that has worked flawlessly for probably 30 years. I wouldn't hesitate to buy Makita, Bosch or Delta (belt or orbital). I've owned several palm sanders and didn't like any of them.

If you're talking about a stationary machine to use for thicknessing backs and sides and soundboards, I think the best thing available for the least cost is thePerformax/Jet 16-32 drum sander for about $1100. There is an aftermarket conveyor belt that works much better than the sandpaper conveyor belt that comes with it.

Hi Matt,
I recommend a 5" Bosch random orbit disc sander. I have used mine both for guitar work, and refinishing my kitchen floor. Many cheaper sanders would be junk by now. For those with an air compressor, snap on makes a great 3" random orbit disc sander, also equipped with hook and loop.
John

I ordered it through Amazon.com from Hamilton Tool and Supply (who say it's from Accura) for my 16/32. I'm not sure they make it for yours but see if they do.
