Dynabrade sanders with 3/8" (aggressive) orbit?7/18
Has anyone tried using the 3/8" orbit option (the most aggressive orbit pattern) on Dynabrade 5" and 6" sanders?
This would be used for sanding items that I cannot run through our drum sander (a wide belt is not an option right now).
A good example is some large heart pine countertops we're doing soon. We're not sending them through any of our surfacing machinery (planer, drum sander) because of the immense amount of nails. We're just going to belt sand these by hand, and finish off with the Dynabrade, and clearcoat with dull CV. The rustic look is their goal.
I'm hoping that a 3/8" orbit on a 6" sander will help me remove belt sander marks quicker than the standard 3/16" sanders we have.
We'd also use this sander, possibly, for sanding the primer on large painted panels with 320 grit, but mostly this sander will be used on raw wood, just prior to the last sanding coat before paint.
I don't know about the Dynabrade, but I have the Mirka Ceros with the 3/8" (5mm) orbit and I use it for everything. It's very aggressive and I have yet to see a swirl mark when staining.
We also use the Mirka 6"after having issues with the dynabrade 3/8 6"
I've been informed that 5mm doesn't equal 3/8" More like a bit over 3/16".
