    Orbital Sanders

    Orbital Sanders are handheld power tools for sanding, which vibrates in small circles or orbits. Orbital sanders are popular tools with woodworkers, cabinet makers and professional carpenters that are used to remove the finish from a piece of wood or to smooth a new project without leaving tell-tale swirl marks that other sanders can leave.

    There are two main types of orbital sanders

    • Orbit sheet sanders – These sanders are easy to use and come with many features including dust elimination, electronic speed controls, various grip styles and low vibration. The sanders use standard sheet sandpaper, which is readily available.
    • Random orbital sander – These sanders work by sanding the workpieces in a random fashion. This provides a much smoother finish and won't leave those common sanding spots that can be left from regular belt sanders. This is because it doesn't rotate on a single consistent axis like a typical sander. The shaft spins and also oscillates off centre, creating a random scratch pattern, so it can be used without concern for the grain direction. It uses a circular sanding pad that's typically 5 in. diameter.
