Planex Sander & a/c Vac
« on: January 26, 2013, 01:08 PM »
To anyone interested in how this sander preforms, Take it from a 33 year builder/drywaller, Don't even give it a second thought, just treat yourself to the most amazing tool combo out there.

I own most of the festool line of tools (and still buying  [laughing]  and this is the most impressive.

180 grit for mud bars & overspray, 24 grit for cleanup on floors.

Thanks FESTOOL!!!!

It is definitely a wonderful tool! And it's so nice not being floured with the dust when you're done. [big grin]
