Thanks for the reply, that's really helped my understanding.

Is is indeed a 150mm sander with variable speed. But I'll take your advice, whilst working on the smaller panels I'll stick to hand and block sanding. Do you know what sort of RPM DAs run at?

Sure thing. That makes perfect sense. I'll clear the whole panel.
