I have a very large sanding project I am about to undertake. It
involves sanding all the beams in my log home and even some of the log
wall surfaces. The beams still have a lot of dirt and preservative
left on them from the construction 13 years ago! And some of the
interior log surfaces have some water stains that need to be sanded
out. I'm thinking that I should invest in a Fein sander with a
dustless vacuum. I have a few questions for anyone here who might be
able to help.
1. Should I get the 6" or the 8" sander? I assume the 6" can get into
tighter spots but the 8" gets more done per hour. How should I make
2. Some of the beams are adjacent to tongue and groove wood boards
that I wouldn't want to hit with the sander. How can I protect those
3. How dustless is 'dustless'?
4. Is the Fein the best way to go?
