Just got a new sander for the shop. the Makita BO3710 1/3 sheet orbital. Gotta say this machine is pretty sweet. Its quiet, and fast.
I have been using it on some projects I have in the works right now. Its really proven itself sanding sheet goods. 150 and 180 on finish pine plywood leaves a perfect surface for finish.
My only complaint is that the dust port isnt sized to fit a vac attachment and they dont make one. I used the one from my PC DA and attached it with some good ole' fashund duck tape. (a staple in my shop ) and it leaves behins almost zero dust.
A great tool and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new finish sander.
