In my shop work I have used one of three ROS (either of my 1/4 sheet or my 1/2 sheet), my 4”×24” belt/disk sander, a Bosch handheld belt sander, sanding sheets double stuck to steel plates or chunks of Formica covered counter top, sponge sanding blocks, 3M 1/2 sheet manual sander, and probably some I forgot I have used!

In summary, I use what best suits the task!

I would really like a drum sander but I don’t have the room or money. I used a Performax machine at the Sawdust shop (a club one can join, buy time on machines by the hour or day or week) and that is a nice machine.
