What is a sander used for?

Sanders help smooth and finish surfaces using abrasive sandpaper. Sanding smooths out and removes imperfections in a surface. When painting, sanding helps to roughen a surface that would normally be too glossy for paint to stick to.

When choosing a disc, make sure to look at the grit. A higher grit indicates finer particles. This means that sandpaper with a higher grit number will be finer, or less course, than grit with a lower value. A lower number of grit means a courser sandpaper.

  • 60-80 grit: Course. Used for smoothing rough surfaces or rounding off corners.
  • 120-150 grit: Medium. Used for removing paint or stain or for general purpose sanding.
  • 180-220 grit: Fine. Used to sand a surface before applying a paint, stain, or finish.
  • 320-400 grit: Ultra or extra fine. Used for sanding between coats and helps achieve a smooth texture.

Lower, courser grit leaves behind more visible scratches. Typically, you follow the courser grit with finer grit to remove the scratches left behind.

What is a random orbit sander?

A random orbit sander consists of a tool with a round base. The base rotates in a circle while the whole pad moves in more oval loops. This seemingly random pattern helps to reduce or eliminate swirl marks in the surface. Random orbital sanders work well for quickly sanding surfaces like wood or woodworking projects. They may also see use removing paint.

Random orbit sanders differ from orbital sanders and belt sanders. Orbital sanders tend to move in one circular motion, which leaves swirl marks behind while a random orbit sander avoids leaving this pattern behind. Belt sanders work best for heavier-duty applications than a random orbital sander. These powerful tools may strip several layers of wood off at a time and work well for sanding rough surfaces quickly and effectively.
