Well, I am a Festool convert. I have had PC for about 20 years and still
have the PC right angle ROS. Way too much sander and tough to control for
small projects. I replaced it a couple of weeks ago with an expensive
Festool Rotex 5" sander and it is great. I wish I had bought it years ago.
Still, probably too much sander for small projects. While purchasing the
sander the Festool rep was also demonstrated the smaller 5" ROS. He turned
it on and held it stationary and pushed it all along the top of the board
using a single finger centered on the top of the sander with a very light
touch. Still not cheap but a bit more affordable.
Many ROS sanders will wander and must be held with your hand. The Festool
stays put and moves easily and controllably with the "lightest touch".
If you want sanding to be fun you should at the very least get a hands on
demonstration of the Festool sanders.
