When there is a need to smooth down a large area or you need a precision sander, then RS has a great range of electric sanders including belt sanders, orbital sanders and palm sanders. These sanders come from a well-known brand such as Bosch, DeWalt, Makita, Black and Decker as well as our own brand RS PRO. Discover more in our guide to sanders.
Belt sanders are used by both DIY enthusiasts and manufacturers to shape and sand wood and other materials such as aluminium. Belt sanders are suited to flat surfaces and can be hand-held or stationary. They have been designed to move easily over the material they are sanding.
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.
