What is an orbital sander?An orbital sander is a power tool commonly used in woodworking, automotive, and other industries for sanding and smoothing surfaces. It is called an ‘orbital sander’ because the sanding pad on the bottom of the tool moves in an orbital, or circular, motion as it sands.
How to use an orbital sander?
- You will need to first attach a piece of sandpaper to the bottom of the tool using Velcro backing.
- Turn the sander on and begin sanding the surface you wish to smooth.
- It is important to keep a steady and even pressure on the sander as you move it over the surface and to periodically check the sandpaper to see if it needs to be replaced.
