between myself and my crew, we have a truckloaad - OK well maybe just a wheelbarrow full of Makita and PC ROSs both are good.

For furniture work, you'll need opads from 100 to at least 180 or 220 and need to finish off with some hand work too. You might also want to lok into a Fein detail samder

Excellence is its own reward!

An orbital sheet sander will be nice because it will fit into corners and will be easier to maneuver. However, it might be a little too rough and leave scratches.

A random-orbit sander is going to be more effective all around it will have a better finish with less vibration making scratches less of a possibility. If you won't need to do a lot of maneuver I'd say you should get this one.

This has been my experience anyway from working with a Minneapolis plastering company for so long.
