Question: Just curious to hear reviews on your sander of choice and why you choose it over others.

Answer: For 3″ random orbit tools both Griots for electric and Chicago Pneumatic for air. First, we test everything we can find and feel the size, durability, and ease of use is hard to beat with Griots and CP. We really thought Metabo was going to be great as they are made in Germany and have a good reputation, but they use plastic gears instead of metal and just don’t hold up like the Griots. Harbor freight makes air tools in the 3″ for a great price, but they do not have the same feel or quality that the CP tools do. My overall preference is an electric tool. And I find that I use the Griots for everything except polishing with liquid. It really makes a headlight look like new again if all the previous sanding and polishing steps are done correctly.
