Porter Cable is the pioneer of the sanders. They have continued to bring new sanders to the market and improved the current sanders. I have talked with a lot of carpenters and others who use sanders and have heard over and over that the only sander is the Porter Cable. They offer a wide variety of sanders, such as orbital, finishing, profile, belt and specialty sanders.

If you would like to learn more about sanders, please visit the Sander page. Also you can check out the forum to discuss various topics.

Porter Cable Sanders – Porter Cable offers the standard 5″ orbital sander. Most of them are the same in terms of power, but as with any sander make sure you get a variable speed. Different woods require different speeds. The belt sanders either come in 3 x 24 or 4 x 24. They have other sizes, but I would stick with either of these sizes as they are the most common. Even though there are a lot of sanders available, a random orbit sander will work on most of your jobs. If you will be removing large amounts of stock, a belt sander will be perfect.
