Delta random orbital sanders

Most seasoned woodworkers know that random orbit sanders beat the socks off of any vibrating or palm sander and Delta just released their new  5” and 6” random orbit sanders! These new versions have 22% more power than the outgoing models. With the improved motor design, it should be easier to maintain speeds under load and also achieve a up to what Delta claims is a 13% higher maximum speed. With the stronger motor there is a much higher level of overload protection which means you can sand and sand to your hearts content!

Both of these tools feature random orbit that will give swirl-free sanding action. Each sander includes either a 5” or 6” (depending on which one you get) proprietary counter balance for use with the sanding/polishing pads. There is a two-position, left or right side, removable side handle for greater comfort and control. The motor and drive train have 100 percent ball and roller bearing construction to ensure that this tool will be in your collection for a long time. On the back end of the tool, there is a dial that give you your variable speed control. There are several different versions and kits available:

Hitachi G12SR3 Grinder Review

We found the Hitachi G12SR3 4-1/2 inch 6 amp angle grinder to be an easy to use tool that should be at the top of any handyman’s short list. Price, performance and ease of use make this an easy pick for someone looking to grab a flexible tool that can be used in tile, metalwork or concrete applications.

Black and Decker JS515 Jig Saw Review

The Black & Decker JS515 4.5 amp Jigsaw can be found for a reasonable “street” price and offers reliable, if simplistic performance. The saw is your basic model and certainly doesn’t feature many frills besides tool-less changing of both universal and t-shank blades and a handy magnetic storage area for up to 3 blades. If you can find it on sale you may have a deal, but paying retail isn’t something we’d recommend for this model.
