An orbital sander doesn't just refer to a sander that is circular, as not all orbital sanders are, but rather one that moves in miniscule circular motions without rotating. With the fine dust, orbital sanders can get clogged up internally. Look for something that can blast it with air to clean it. A 120-grit sanding disc will remove paint on wood and leave a smooth finish. (Image credit: Garry Martin) A pro orbit sander for DIYers and plenty of accessories Makita sell a range of accessories including hook-and-loop type abrasive discs (sandpaper), sponge pads, felt pads and wool pads for polishing, a dust box, paper filter bags and various batteries and chargers. It’s a shame the kit comes with only one 120-grit sandpaper disc – I would have liked to have seen a selection of different grits provided, and perhaps 2 or 3 of the common ones. A decorator might use an orbital sander for walls to even out uneven plastering, using a fine grit of sandpaper. It can also be used in between coats of plaster, with a very fine grit sandpaper, for a smoother, even finish.A orbital sander can't be used to cut objects, and it won’t polished up concrete or screed — it’s purely for timber and the likes of filler and plaster. What should you look out for when buying one?

The majority of modern orbital sanders are referred to as 'random' orbital sanders. Where a traditional orbital sanders just moves in circles, a random sand moves up and down too, helping to reduce swirl patterning in the wood as a result of using the sander. What jobs is an orbital sander suitable for? Speaking of the dust bag, it performed well which surprised me. I expected there to be much more dust in the air and around the tool when using the bag but it was actually not substantially different when attached to an extractor. The Makita DBO180 has been developed as Makita's first cordless random orbit sander powered by 18v Li-ion batteries. It has a compact design with short height and lower centre of gravity for better manoeuvrability. Ergonomically best possible grip design for comfortable handling. Excellent performance as powerful AC model gives high productivity.If the tool is faulty within 30 days of buying it, we will arrange for its collection at no cost to you and supply a replacement. Battery life was also surprisingly good. The kit is supplied with two 5.0ah Makita BL1850B Li-Ion LXT Batteries and a DC18RC 14.4V to 18V Li-Ion Charger. As the charger is capable of charging a BL1850B battery in 45 minutes, it’s extremely unlikely that you’ll run out of battery power assuming you have mains electricity for the charger to operate. This can be repositioned in one of twelve directions in accordance with your use, and in all positions, the dust port protrudes. It’s also not clear why you should need a screwdriver to reposition this – it seems a simple friction toggle would have been much easier and more practical.

If you’re putting a worktop in, for example, and it’s a bit rough, or if you put a joint in with a small discrepancy of half a mm or so, an orbital sander is perfect for making right.
