    sander? a few questions

    first of all those of you who use air sanders, whats your prefernce, pad size,orbit size H&L,PSA,hard or soft pad?

    now as for a 6" sander electric with intension of using it as a buffer as well. am looking at the bosch 1250 for this, but would like your input, should i get a hard pad, would psa be better what about the pad for buffing? thanks for the info.

    Festool 5" Rotax - hook-n-loop.

    I like it because of its 'dual action.' It can be a good finish sander, and still be nearly as agressive (but smoother) as a disc sander.

    Kinda pricey, though. I think I paid $340, but it's gone up a couple times since then.
