Smooth sanding on large projects
Festool RS 2 Orbital Sander
I purchased this at my local Woodcraft store on sale. (Just kidding).
I have almost all the Festool sanders and at first could not figure out where this fit in to the scheme of things. I found that it is perfect for the smooth sanding of large workpieces.
It is a big, powerful sander but you would never know it. It is extremely quiet and easy to control. The challenge mentally is to use it in a straight line with the grain. I am used to Festool other Rotex sanders that can be used in any direction.
You can use any brand of sandpaper that very easily clips on to the tool or you can use Festool's stick-fix paper. If you want to perforate regular sandpaper for dust collection, you have to buy the template and special sanding pad. If you use stick-fix paper it only comes in rather large quantities. Stocking up on a few grits can cost literally hundreds of dollars.
I think this sander is best suited to the higher grits so I may not need that much.
