Try the 1/2" Drum Sander with 180g-220g Paper(Emery works Best)...You Might Try a Taper Spindle, and Purchase Sanding Rolls to Fit (usually get a Bag of 50 for about $5, Lots easier to change out, plus they come in Various Profiles and Grits.
Someday You might want to Upgrade to Either a Foredom, or a Dumore, You would be a Lot Happier.
I Use a 1/4HP Foredom for Metal Polishing, can't imagine anything else...Have Fun!

    I feel that for the Money, a Great Tool Makes you Money in the Long Run, Lasts Longer, better Built.
    My Foredom for instance, has a Floor Operated On/Off, & Speed Control. The Tool Holder which has 3 Different Arbor/Chuck sizes available( far greater range of Tooling) is about 3/4" in Diameter and is attached to a 42" Long Flexible Shaft (similiar to a Dentist Drill)...guess it boils down to How Fast, and How Much Product you intend to make...Good Luck.

How to remove stain from wood

Sanding would seem to be the best method. Use an orbital (finishing) sander, rather than a belt sander, so you can smooth out and blend in the sanded area with the existing timber.

How to sand wood to prepare for applying finish

When I was growing up my dad used to build all kinds of things out of wood. My job was to sand down all the pieces before he applied the finish. Since I have grown up I have been perfecting my sanding technique.

To start you have to make sure that you prepare the wood. If there are nails make sure to hammer them into the surface properly and remove any staples as they might catch the sandpaper and rip it.

Depending on how rough the surface you are going to be sanding you will be using different gradient of paper. A higher grit paper works well to make the surface smooth to the touch while a lower grit will help to get rougher surfaces down to a point when you can use a higher grit paper to do a final smoothing.

My dad used to make me wear a mask, goggles and gloves whenever I would sand, but I've learned that he was a little over protective. When you are sanding you should wear a mask and glasses to keep small pieces of sanding dust from getting in your lungs and eyes. While you don't have to wear gloves when your sanding but if you are using a sanding block and your hand slips you could skin your hand, its always better safe than sorry.

What I have noticed from teaching my kids how to sand wood is that after they have been sanding for a while they will come to me and say that the paper has stopped working and they need new paper. This is not entirely true, when you use sandpaper the dust that comes off the wood tends to clog the paper. Thankfully this is easably fixed, all you have to do is tap the paper and the dust should just fall right off.

When the wood is smooth to the touch you are finished sanding. I like to use a soft dry rag to just wipe the dust from the surface. This is an important step if you are going to apply a finish to the wood because if there is dust then the finish will make little bumps where there is dust.

Building things with your kids can be a really great bonding experience. And teaches your kids the basics of fixing simple things like a loose nail.

Festool RO 125 leaves scuff marks when sanding

depends how important it is to vacuum the dust, most generic brand sandpaper discs will have different hole placements for the sander and the vacuum cant suck the dust up. if you are getting swirl marks from the edge of the sander, is the disc too small? a generic brand that is slightly larger may work but try and keep the sander flat or the excess disk can cause a little trouble with the finish.

We removed all the wood trimming/doors inside our Catalina 30 sailboat. We want to do a clean/revive type job on it. The wood is teak. How do we proceed?

if the teak is bare teak --- a light sanding with a sanding block should be good and then follow that with a good rub down of teak oil ( sea-fin teak oil is a good brand ).
if the teak is finished teak --- and you want to remove the old finish and sand out any stains(?) then you will need to use a more aggressive sand paper and finish off with a lighter sand paper,, clean up with acetone, use a good tack cloth and start applying varnish -- the best varnish that I have ever used is a brand called ' Epiphanes ' and you will either want to use a ' matte ' finish or a ' gloss /semi-gloss ' finish. personally I have found the 'matte ' finish to look better and it brings out the true beauty of the teak itself. ( make sure you follow the sanding instructions between coats as this will give you a nice smooth and sharp look ).
enjoy the water ---

Dewalt d26451 type 1 random orbital sander. why does this sander jump around on the material and feel like it's fighting me all the time instead of sanding smooth and easy?

I have the same problem with a Porter Cable orbital sander I recently purchased. Whats happening is the sander is catching the edge of the board you're trying to sand and jerking back and forth as the sander base spins. It seems that if the board your're sanding is at least as wide as the sander base, the problem goes away, which does little good because there will be many times I we'll need to sand wood that is less in size. But you may try using a lesser grit sandpaper and see if that alleviates the problem somewhat.

Pretty sure things like that are considered expendable. Pat yourself on the back for getting so much sanding done and buy a new one.

Clarke FM1700 buffer-sander, problems with using it

what is the condition of the felt pad on the driver?? The sander should not be that hard, usually you need to lift up or slightly bear down to get the machine to move left or right. Are there any exposed nails in the area you are sanding and check the grit for the sanding conditions

I cannot remove the plate to pute the other plate on

Here's a copy of the manual instructions...
Detail Sanding
Your tool is equipped with a teardrop base which allows you to use it on large flat surfaces
and tight spots or corners.
The pad tips may wear unevenly, depending on use. The pads are designed to allow you to
interchange and /or rotate the diamond tip.
Fitting Sanding Sheets ( Fig. 2)
• Detach the two diamond-shaped tips from the sanding sheet.

If this doesn't provide enough information, take a look at the pictures in the manual at the following link:,MS550GBMS550GH.pdf

If you still have difficulty getting the base off, write back and let me know specifically what the trouble is and I'll try to help you with it.
• Hold the tool with the sanding base facing upwards.
• Place the sanding sheet onto the sanding base.
The diamond-shaped tip can be reversed and replaced when worn.
• When the front part of the tip is worn, detach it from the sheet, reverse it and press it onto
the sanding base again.
• When the whole tip is worn, remove it from the sanding base and fit a new tip.
Tip of the Sanding Base ( Fig. 3)
When the sanding base tip is worn, it can be reversed or replaced.
• Remove the screw.
• Reverse or replace the worn part.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Finger Attachment ( Fig. 4)
The finger attachment is used for fine detail sanding.
• Remove the screw.
• Remove the diamond-shaped tip holder from the sanding base.
• Fit the finger attachment onto the sanding base.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Contour Holder Attachment (Fig. 5)
• The contour sanding pieces are for sanding curved surfaces and grooves.
• Remove the screw.
• Remove the diamond-shaped tip holder from the
sanding base.
• Fit the contour holder onto the sanding base.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Fitting and Removing a Contour Piece (Fig. 6 & 7)
• Choose the contour sanding piece profile most suitable for your application.
• Place one end of the contour sanding piece into the recess at
the front end of the profile holder.
• Push the other end of the contour sanding piece until it clicks
into place.
To remove the contour sanding piece, push it forward then pull the rear end out of
the profile holder (fig. 7).
Fitting a Sanding Sheet Onto a Contour Sanding Piece (Fig. 8)
• Align the sanding sheet with the contour sanding piece.
• Press the sanding sheet onto the contour sanding piece, making
sure that the sanding sheet follows the shape of the profile.

Orbital sander flicking the sand paper off

You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad.  My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly.  If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically.    For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol.  Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin.  When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine.    Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding.  This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup.    For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces  clean!    Good luck and happy sanding!  Michael Mittelsdorf
