Three Good Random Orbital Sanders for Your DIY Project

A bad carpenter blames the tools. But truth be told, there are some bad tools out there and this holds true even for random orbit sanders. Especially for the average DIYer, one who's not fully initiated into the trade, choosing the right sander is usually reduced to chance.
But here are three random orbit sanders you can confidently buy for your next DIY project.
1. Bosch-ROS20VSK
The Bosch-ROS20VSK orbit sander is yet another well-built machine from the German manufacturer. For DIY sanding projects, its 2.57 Amps motor delivering up to 20 000 oscillations per minute is a real deal sealer.
But the real pride of the machine lies in its ability to smoothen your surfaces without leaving those ugly swirl marks. This is thanks to its ingenious pad braking system.
The Bosch-ROS20VSK is far from a senseless beast that will just eat away your soft wood surface. It actually comes with adjustable speed to match the hardness of the sanding surface. It can go from a gentle 7000 to a maniac 2000 oscillations per minute.
For clean work areas, the machine is built with a dust collection bin which is a lot more effective than most random orbital sanders, allowing only a little dust to escape.
2. DEWALT D26453K Random Orbital Sander
If looks are anything to go by, the DEWALT D26453K will make the grade any day. But an assuring appearance is not all it bears. It comes with a reliable performance to match.
With a 2.7 amp motor, the DEWALT D26453K random orbit sander delivers 12 000 oscillations per minute which is just aggressive enough for hard surfaces, but still lenient on your soft wood.
Vibration is what does the job, but the machine keeps the action just on the sanding surface. It comes with little vibration at the handles which makes for comfortable operation. The sander is heavy and powerful but smooth to handle.
3. Black & Decker MS2000 4-in-1 Smart Select Multi Sander
While the Black & Decker MS2000 is not commercial grade, it will definitely shine when tasked with your DIY project. The sander comes cordless and uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery instead - portability solved!
The Black & Decker MS2000 random orbit sander is a versatile machine with its 3 different interchangeable pads to handle a range of jobs.
For maximum convenience, the sanding bases can be changed without any tool using it snap on and off attachments. The sandpaper can also be attached using a quick hook-and-loop system. For comfortable sanding, the machine has a multi-grip ergonomic handle and very little vibration.
