Tips for Using a Power Sander

Power sanders can be used for a wide range of tasks, and yet many people tend to use them sparingly due to intimidation. Follow the guidelines in this video in order to use power sanders safely and effectively. 

When it comes to power sanders, bigger sanders do provide greater benefits. Large sanders have larger belts, which provides greater surface area and makes it easier to hold level. If you are a beginner, use a finer belt; mistakes will be minimized because less wood is being taken away. It is also a good idea to use a lower speed, as it reduces the probability of digging into your project and making mistakes.
