In this article, Gregory Paolini shares a story about one of his students and why they were getting swirl marks while sanding. Gregory Paolini is a nationally recognized woodworker, author, and woodworking instructor. You can learn more about him by visiting his website at www.GregoryPaolini.com.
In the review of the RO 90 DX multi-mode sander written by Cliff the "Wood Nerd", he mentions that initially he struggled with the balance of the machine. The weight of the motor in the rear of the sander combined with the weight of the dust extraction hose were making it challenging to keep the pad flat. This brings up a very important point about how proper technique can make a noticeable difference in the performance of a tool.
Choices, choices, choices...
Well, there's no doubt that all the different types of abrasive offered by Festool can be intimidating, if not confusing. But, each one is developed and engineered to solve a specific problem. You may have tried one type of abrasive, like Brilliant, and decided it does the job and you can just use it for every purpose. Well, that may or may not be the best choice. In this article, we're going to sort through the different types of abrasives and touch on the ideal application for each. Hopefully, once you're done reading this you'll have a better understanding of what you should be using to get the best results.
