Sheet Sanders

Tool-default.png
Synonyms: orbital finishing sanders;
DE: Schwingschleifer, Rutscher
Type: power sanders
Material: depends on sanding sheet (usually wood)
Used with: sandpaper
Location: wood workshop
Access Requirements: Handheld Sander Introduction
Tutors: Lukas
Similar (More or Less): eccentric and other power sanders

Sheet sanders have a square orbiting pad that lets you reach into corners and remove a similar amount of material as eccentric sanders. Because they lack the additional turning motion though, they are more prone to leaving sanding marks on your workpiece if you're not careful.

Used with: sandpaper - 93 × 185 mm (hook and loop)
or 93 × 230 mm (plain, clamped)
Location: wood workshop
Access Requirements: Handheld Sander Introduction
Tutors: Lukas
Manual: ManualsLib

The Bosch PSS 250 AE can be used with hook-and-loop sandpaper strips, but regular ones can also be clamped in.

It has a "microfilter" that reduces airborne dust, but you should ideally use a shop vac (will fit in combination with the rubber adapter in the sander's case) and/or go outside and it does not hurt to still protect yourself with a dust mask. The sandpaper should have the appropriate holes for dust extraction to work, of course!

Location: wood workshop

Manual: skil.de

The SKIL 7210 is a "multi" sander that can also be equipped with a delta sander-like tip - unfortunately, that part is not included with the one we have.

This sander can only be used outside and with a dust mask at the moment, its bag only traps the relatively large dust particles! Perhaps this could be improved with a custom shop vac adapter.
