    Alright, so I’m looking for a new power and I’ve been looking at the Flex but I can’t find much on comparing it to the porter cable I’ve got an old PC sander that’s pretty well worn out. (Eats brushes like they are going out of style. Lol) Got 2 of the new Dewalt cordless ones. ( one lasted 7...

    I do this all the time, but I figured out a little trick. Have your pole sander leaned up against a wall, and if you drop your sponge, grab your sander and put the paper side on the floor beside your sponge, nudge your sponge the back of the sander and balance it up, its quite easy to do it.:)

    I test ran a electric drywall sander from porter cable about 7-8 years ago, the thing was like trying to hang onto a rabid animal, was heavy, and even on the lowest setting, with 220grit, it left swirl marks no matter how gently I ran it. Everyone I talked to at the time had the same complaints...

    Has anyone found a drywall sander that compares to the P-C 7800 that isn't as expensive. We don't use it everyday, but work it hard when we do use it. http://www.jjwpainting.com

    Has anyone used the PC Drywall Sander (model # 7800)? I recently saw this on a job and I was quit impressed. It seems like it would be a lot easier to then hand sanding. Is the unit worth the cost? Does it hold up on the job site? I did notice that it was a great way to reduce the dust when...
