Re: Tools: ROS and Sanding
In Response To: Re: Tools: ROS and Sanding ()

A small lightweight low amp ROS works great if you understand that using the right sandpaper grit
and and light touch will keep the disk spinning at a high RPM which will cut aggressively.

For my take on the ROS and Sanding see - http://www.laughingloon.com/sanding.html

Rob, I decided to save the money I was going to spend on a new Bosch ROS and put it toward the better jig saw and a new backing pad for my existing ROS, which incidentally is listed as one of your choices -- the Bosch ROS20VSK. I will revisit if I find it lacking for the task.

Based on recommendations here, and reading your site (which I have been to several times already) I have shifted my thinking from 1/4 strips to 3/16.

Much thanks to all who have helped me to date!
