A reasonably priced random orbit sander that has all the features to put a great finish on your home improvement projects.

Porter-Cable 5-Inch Random Orbit Sander Kit Many DIY projects you’d love to do requires a sander. You know, the one you never bought because you thought you couldn’t justify the expense. Well, now you can. And don’t be surprised how many other projects you’ll want to do once you’ve learned about this great, light weight orbital sander.

I do many projects around the house; refinishing furniture, building bookcases, and making outdoor projects, so I wanted a reliable sander that would handle all those DIY projects and, of course, wouldn’t cost to much.

That’s when I came upon the PORTER-CABLE 20V MAX random orbit portable sander.

It’s soft rubberized grip provides comfort and control, as well as minimizing vibration. It uses hook and loop sanding pads, which allows for quick paper changes, and there’s an enlarged plastic hood over the pad, which allows you to get into tight corners without damaging the pad or your project.

For safety the automatic brake engages when you set the sander down. I really love that, as I always seem to let go of the sander to soon, and disaster strikes. And speaking of disasters and the subsequent clean up, clean up and maintenance on this sander is made easy with the removable cap. See more details.

The dual dust ports accommodate either 1 inch or 1-1/2 inch vacuum hoses, and the dust canister beats a bag any day. This reasonably priced DIY sander also includes a nice travel case for easy transport and storage.

This low priced, high quality orbital sander will easily meet most do-it-yourself needs, and give years of reliable service. Mine sure has. Thanks Porter Cable.
