Random orbital sander is relatively easy to use and control. You can get a lot of work done using a random orbital sander by spending a little amount of time. But, there are some things that you should keep in mind to get the best use of the sander. In this article, we are going to show you how to use a random orbital sander to its full potential.

The random orbital sander gives you the free and easy usability. Plus, the finishing that these sanders provide is unparalleled.

THE USE OF RANDOM ORBITAL SANDER

You can use a random orbital sander to achieve versatile woodworking functions, but mainly it is used to give your material a more smooth texture. Usually, these tools come with a lot of power so you can work on rough materials and get quick results. The design is very compact so that you can work with ease, even with one hand. So, ultimately this is a sander that will give you great power and control in a compact body.

HOW SHOULD YOU DEAL WITH THE TOOL?

Keep the Object Locked
Make sure that the object that you are working on is properly locked. Keep it secure, so it does not move too often. This way, you have had more control over the job.
USE EVEN STROKES: You should apply even strokes in every part of the object to make sure that they are sand properly. This will result in a smoother finishing to your object.
USE VENTILATION IF NEEDED Try to remember this when you use a random orbital sander, keep the ventilation on. It creates dust particle that cannot be easily controlled. So, you should keep your ventilation on to avoid the debris in your mouth.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT KIND OF SAND PAPER Different kind of wood respond well to different kind of sandpapers. So, you should look out for what is best for you and then buy your sandpaper accordingly. Make sure to properly place the sandpaper on your sander and that your sander head is clean at the start.
DOUBLE SAND THE EDGES: It is always a good idea to double sand the edges if you are looking for perfection. This allows the object to have a more fine tuning and luxurious look.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

  • Do not change the disk of random orbital sanders very frequently as it will not be cost-effective. Use it until the very end.
  • Do not apply too much pressure while working on the edges
  • Add vacuum if you want to keep your station clean.
  • Sand with a steady hand and turn up the power for rough woods.
