Ok slipped away from the wife while Christmas shopping. Have been thinking for awhile about getting a air sander. Looked at the Grex but it said it takes 8 cfm which my compressor won't handle. Mine is a 1.6 hp, 33 gal tank and says 5 cfm at 90 psi. I think that would be closer to 4 cfm at 90 psi. A bigger compressor is out of the question mostly because of size (small shop) and money. Anyway saw a Ingersoll Rand 301 air sander that said it takes 3 cfm to run at full tilt which I think could be lived with. It has a 1/4" collet which would take my sanding pads. Does anyone use a air sander or have any recommendations on one that would work on my compressor?
