Re: Best sander for bottom sanding?
I've been using a hepa filtered Skill brand POS... it's a 1/4 sheet sander. It has a vacuum assist into the hepa canister, and works OK... but now I've dropped the canister on the concrete floor and it no longer holds on the sander. It looks like it's also setup to take a standard shop-vac connection. I'll find that out soon. I suspect the sander won't live much past doing the boat. But then I could be wrong.
I CAN say that it's kept a decent portion of the dust down into the canister, at least until I broke the canister.
I guarantee the Porter Cable covers more area. Although this little guy seems to take lots of pressure.
