After a nice week-long break for Christmas, we’re back in the shop, back to our projects, and back to the blog! And we’re kicking things back off with another #ToolTuesday post.
My (JZ’s) pick this week is the Dewalt Random Orbit Sander, 5-Inch (DWE6423K).
This wonderful power sander appeared under the Christmas tree this year, and I couldn’t be happier. While I already have a belt sander and detail sander, this one fills a much needed gap in my power sander collection.
I told Santa (aka my dad) that I wanted the Dewalt model because it always won out in head-to-head reviews of random orbit sanders on other blogs. As for not going cordless, any tool that I know I’ll run for extended periods of time, I prefer to get the corded version.
And now that I’ve given it a whirl on our current project, I can say that I LOVE the dust management, quieter operation (compared to my other sanders), and the ease of using it for long periods of time without having your hand feel like it’s going to fall off. I can definitely tell that Dewalt took some care to ease the vibrations in this powerful little tool.
Santa was awesome and added in some extra sandpaper in a variety of grits, which you’ll definitely want if you add this to your collection.
