Sander advice
« on: December 18, 2014, 09:06 AM »
I am new to Festool and need purchasing advice. I think I want either the Rotex RO125 or 90.  I have finished chairs with rounded bottoms so I have to deal with curved surfaces. They have been finished glossy and I want to sand/rub them to satin or semigloss. Which sander would you recommend (I'm leaning toward the 125)?  Which accessories?  I think the platin 1000 pads and one of the soft polishing pads. I want to order today but am not sure what I need to have everything I need. Also, I am leaving for a week tomorrow and would like everything here when I get back (no pressure).  Also, what comes with the sander.

Welcome to Festool CliftonHB!

I would suggest the  RO90 because it has the triangular
attachment to get into the chairs' corners.
