Sometimes I like to use synthetic abrasive pads to rub out finishes. When working large panels, which can demand a lot of time and elbow grease, I pull my random orbit sander into service. Its Velcro-faced disk grabs a synthetic pad firmly without slippage as long as the weight of the sander is on the pad. It sure makes easy work of an otherwise tedious chore.
