I own a ROS and am refinishing all the trim (eventually) in my house.
Despite my hand that is tingling from the hours of vibration, it seems to be
working ok. I'm wondering if a 1/4 sheet sander would be a better choice
for this work? Is there a brand that is comfortable to run for long periods
of time? The ROS is starting to wear on me.
Thanks for any tips!
Nope, the 1/4 sheet is not aggressive enough.
Scraper(s) would be my first choice, for those profiles that could handle
I'd also consider wearing a bicycling or weightlifter's padded palm glove to
ease the tingle.
I just bought a ROS because sheet sanders are worthless. Sheet sanders just
sit on top of the wood and vibrate until the sheet rips. With the ROS if
you want to remove the material faster buy a coarser grit sanding pad.
