Electric sander buying guide
An electric sander will be essential for various jobs on your home. Indeed, a sander will serve you both for the maintenance and finishing of your various furniture and joinery parts, but also for your walls, floors and ceilings. With the many models of electric sanders on the market, it's not always easy to find your way around. To make the comparison as well as the test of these, it is necessary to know the different characteristics of this tool.
The different types of electric sanders
Electric sanders are available in 3 main models. Namely: electric circular, belt and vibrating sanders. Choosing the model of your electric sander must take into account the type of work you want to perform, as well as the configuration of the surface to be treated.
Electric circular sanders are the best choice for large area processing. Indeed, the surface of the plate of this type of electric sander makes it possible to treat large areas in a minimum of time as well as with greater comfort. The power of an electric circular sander also allows it to adapt to any type of material. The rotary motion of the bed of an electric circular sander also allows it to effectively remove irregularities and scratches from the surface to be sanded. This makes it particularly suitable for finishing or roughing work.
Les ponceuses électriques à bande disposent d’un plateau formé d’une bande d’abrasif tendue entre deux rouleaux. Le mouvement qui l’anime est donc linéaire, contrairement à une ponceuse électrique circulaire. La bande d’abrasif étant entraînée par les rouleaux à la manière d’un tapis roulant. Les ponceuses électriques à bande disposent également d’une puissance accrue. Ce qui lui permet de d’adapter à tout type de matériau. Toutefois, les tests et les comparatifs ont démontré que les ponceuses électriques à bande étaient moins adaptées pour des travaux de finition. Le mouvement linéaire du plateau ne permettant pas d’éliminer les rayures. Par contre en matière de dégrossissage, les ponceuses à bandes constituent le meilleur choix.
Electric vibrating sanders are the least powerful. For working large areas, a circular sander is a better choice. Their plate is animated by longitudinal and lateral oscillating movements. Electric orbital sanders, however, have greater versatility compared to the models mentioned above. In fact, the different shapes of an electric vibrating sander's plate (triangular, square, rectangular) allow this type of sander to reach areas that are difficult to access: corners and recesses. For finishing jobs, an electric vibrating sander is a better choice.
Corded or cordless electric sander?
An electric sander can be powered by a mains plug or by an integrated battery. An important consideration is the type of power supply to an electric sander. Indeed, it will determine the versatility, the performance, as well as the practicality of use of the device.
Tests and benchmarks have shown that a corded electric sander is a better choice for sanding large areas. This is because with a corded electric sander, you won't have to worry about battery life. In addition, an electric sander powered by an outlet has better power.
Battery-powered electric sanders, despite a few compromises in terms of power and runtime, will be essential in many cases.The first advantage of a cordless electric sander is that you can work anywhere.Requiring no connection, a cordless electric sander is particularly suitable for operations outdoors or in places that are difficult to access (roofs, attics, exterior walls, etc.).With limited battery life, purchasing a pair of cordless electric sanders is a better choice for long-term use.In fact, you will be able to switch between the two devices each time one is discharged, thus avoiding you having to wait unnecessarily for the recharge time.
Classic or vacuum electric sander?
There are two variants of electric vacuum sanders. Namely: those with an integrated suction device and those whose suction is provided by an independent vacuum cleaner. An electric sander with an integrated vacuum system is a better choice. In fact, the absence of a hose connecting the electric sander to a vacuum cleaner will give you more freedom of movement. Note, however, that electric sanders with a vacuum outlet have a larger dust collection bag, allowing you to empty it less often.
