A Brief Guide to the Makita Orbital Sander
The Makita orbital sander is a relatively cheap yet effective electric power tool designed to sand or polish wood, metal and plastics. Some models are designed to spin in one direction, while others can be set to spin in both directions. The Makita random orbit sander, for example, moves back and forth while spinning to ensure a “swirl” pattern isn’t left in the workpiece.
There are some exceptional products to choose from at UK Planet Tools, but choosing the right Makita orbital sander for your needs requires careful research. We’ve put together a brief guide to help you buy a high-quality product that’s capable of delivering your requirements.
