We have an older deck we are looking to fix up without totally building a new one. We're going to replace all the floor planks and reuse the railings as the wood is still in good condition.
I'm looking for a sander to sand the railings while they're off (the railings are just 2x4s which have been cut at an angle along one of the long ends), and hopefully also to use to sand our fence later this summer. Both the deck and the fence were previously painted, although a fair bit of the paint has already peeled off.
What is my best bet for a sander - I've read a few articles and it seems like a belt sander would work? Thank you for any advice!
