In the previous issue of Popular Woodworking ( #171), we reviewed variable-speed random-orbit sanders. We had this 5″-diameter Craftsman Professional Vibrafree sander (# 25927) prior to testing, but this is a single-speed tool (12,000 orbits per minute), and thus didn’t qualify for our test. But this sander is something to talk about.

This Craftsman is different from any random-orbit sander we’ve seen. The tool has an innovative sanding-pad design, with two
sanding areas – an outer ring and a inner pad.
