Accordingly, how does a sander work?
A sander is a power tool used to smooth surfaces by abrasion with sandpaper. Sanders have a means to attach the sandpaper and a mechanism to move it rapidly contained within a housing with means to hand-hold it or fix it to a workbench. It can be used for rough or fine sanding depending on the sanding grit used.
One may also ask, is air or electric sanders better? Pneumatics are generally lighter. But obviously to use a pneumatic tool, you're gonna need a big daddy air compressor. The smaller units will cycle repeatedly which will ultimately kill the compressor. And from what I hear, pneumatic sanders can also be more powerful than our standard electric sanders.
Also to know is, is a orbital sander the same as a DA sander?
Random orbital is a dual action (DA) sander. Different companies, different names, both the same.
Can I use a orbital sander to sand my car?
Orbital sander Orbital sanders are powerful air sanders that are ideal for light prep work, such as smoothing edges and sanding down old coats of paint. As their name suggests, the abrasive sanding pad moves in an orbital motion.
