The Difference Between Orbital and Random Orbit Sanders

Description

Joe Truini from DannyLipford.com shows you the differences between an orbital sander and a random orbit sander so that you can choose the right one for your next project.

Transcript
Dannylipford.com Joe Truini: These two similar looking sanders also have similar sounding names which add the confusion. This is an orbital sander. And if you look closely, the pad vibrates in tiny circles. As the motor slows down, you can see the pad vibrating this top, this model happens to operate about 14,000 rpm. Now that’s an orbital sander. This is a random orbit sander. And its pad vibrates in tiny circle that also rotates in full circles. Now that dual motion creates a much more abrasive cutting tool than a finishing sander. But a finishing sander is more forgiving so you’re not likely to over sand or harm a piece of wood. The random orbit sander is great for removing paint or knocking down really rough boards. And it also cost likely more than a finishing sander. But if you’re really active do it yourself where there are a lot of projects around the house. Chances are you might need both of these tools in your workshop.
