Thank you MR PHIL, for you and all your infinite wisdom have let me see the err in my ways.

I have blown the dust off my old blue top hutchins and gone back to taking 3 times as long to get my colorsanding done, all the while getting poorer results than I did when taking the advice of both my ppg and 3m rep's to try a 3/8" orbital with trizact.

You sir are an inspiration to us all. :worthy:

But it's kind of strange that TCP global passes on this little bit of info in their item description for a DNB 21015 3/8" orbit sander don't you think?

"For Aggresive Sanding with Coarse Grits, but also works exceptionally well with 3M's Ultra-Fine Trizact Sandpaper"

Be forewarned that you need to ignore the typo on their part in the item heading. PAY ATTENTION to the MODEL# and the color of the handle on the sander being listed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dynabrade-6-RAN ... 2591594185

I would like this dynabrade sander for primarily sanding clear coat. I just want to be clear, and ask if the best recommendation is the 3/8 inch orbital? Even if the sheet says others are more suited to sand with fine grit? Does the 3/8 only work well with trizact fine sand paper? Does it do fine with other sand paper?

I have used the Astro Pneumatic 3/16 (80 bucks) for a few years now for feather edging, dry 1500, and 3000 wet trizac. it has been fine but I was advised to buy the 3/32. I think I made the right choice. Just remember to oil whatever you use regularly and it should give great service for what you spend. :wink:

When it craps out the dynabrade or airvantage will most likely be my choice.
