I have decided to go electric for my buffer and sander due to the size of the compressor that I will purchase. I most likely will purchase a makita varible speed buffer. Can anyone recommend an electric sander. Will be used mostly for motorcycles.

Good choice in buffer but as far as the sander goes I couldn't help you there. Everything I use is air powered.

Makita also makes a decent palm sander. I researched the palm sanders on the internet and I think Bosch wins but it's also the most expensive. 8)
