I posted a while back...

about buying a sander to refinish a good sized dresser and the consensus was a Porter Cable random-orbit sander. There are two models that I am looking at, the 333 and 334. There are two differences, one is hook and loop and the other is adhesive backed and the hook and loop is $10.00 cheaper at (Amazon.com product link shortened) ds=porter%20cable%20quicksand&field-browse"8013&search-type=ss&bq=1&store- name=hi/ref=xs_ap_l_xgl60/102-0246416-6451371.
How would I go about weighing the differences between hook and loop and adhesive backing? Just to make sure, the dresser measures 72"W/24"D/36"H, will one of these sanders be sufficient for this project? Any other advice would help. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, that's one of the worst cases of link-wrap that I've seen in a while. Try this:

Not to get off the subject but how did you do that and what did I do wrong? Thanks again.

Neither you, nor the person who posted the long URL did anything wrong. What happened was that your newsreader automatically wrapped it on to multiple lines. Mine did too, so I just took the fragments, stitched them back together, tested it to make sure it worked, and reposted it. Many newsreaders will not wrap text located between <> symbols, so I inserted the URL between a pair. As for the other, shorter URL, you can check that out at http://tinyurl.com .

The hook and loop is a good choice if you will be changing grits often before wearing out a piece of paper as you can reapply and reuse this type of sand paper. PSA or pressure sensitive adhesive, "adhesive backing", paper is more economical and if you use mostly the same grit and or wear out the paper before removing it, is probably the better choice. It sticks once. I use an aggressive PC right angle ROS with 120 grit paper all the time and use a PC SpeedBloc finish sander with 180 grit almost all the time. I use PSA paper with both sanders. I personally believe that you may get better results using a GOOD finishing sander like the PC SpeedBloc vs. a ROS on this particular application as your surface is already smooth enough. A ROS sander is a good all around sander but has difficulty in areas that finish sanders excel at. A ROS does not get in to tight spots and or corners. Most any finish sander will take you there. Also many factory or production built furniture pieces have veneers that can be thin. If care is not taken and because a ROS can be aggressive it can sand through that veneer quite easily and quickly.

After comparing the cost of the sanding disks in the long run the cost of the sander in minor. With the PSA disks being quite a bit less expensive (and the cost of replacing the hook and loop pad when too much pressure is applied and the loops melt) I opted to purchase two sanders both using the PSA disks. I use one for 120 grit and one with 180 grit. Finer grit sanding is done with a in-line finishing sander.
