Each type of electric sander includes characteristics that make your job easier. They also make sanding easier and more fun. These engineered tools have been carefully thought out and are the result of years of experience from woodworkers and product designers. Here are some characteristics to look for when purchasing an electric or cordless sander from Sander Mag.
- Hand grips: It is critical to hold on to your sander in a safe and controllable manner. Powerful sanders produce a lot of vibration, whilst small sanders require precise control to avoid destroying fine details. The composition is the most important aspect of sander grips. Soft handles make holding and controlling your sander much easier.
- Dust Collection: When sanding, dust is unavoidable. However, there is a solution to avoid breathing and sweeping dust. Many electric sanders like Sander Mag include dust collection bags. Some are designed to work with shop vacuums or external dust collection equipment.
- Variable speed controls are available on several electric sanders. They enable you to run at medium speeds for careful preliminary work or at rapid speeds for high polishing. Some sanders have throttle-like controls that allow you to vary speeds while you sand. Others have selection switches with rates ranging from one to nine.
- Trigger Locks: This useful function allows you to lock your sander in motion while freeing up your hands. You can also clamp your trigger and lock it on a run setting while feeding your work to the sanding belt, disc, or pad.
