Comments about Drywall Sander with Dust Collection:

For drywall finishing and for faux paint removal (glazed surfaces) this tool makes the job go 100X faster.As far as taking off to much material, Makes sure you use the right grit of paper, Keep in mind that I found it best to move up to the next finer grit and this also reduces time required to complete task. The suggestion of keeping shop vac out side is a great idea. keeps your clean up to a minimum. Also if you can't find cheese cloth a loose woven cloth also works well, just be prepared to clean the vac out more often as it removes a good amount of material.

    Removal of spray-on Popcorn ceiling

      • Frequent Use

      Comments about Drywall Sander with Dust Collection:

      Purchased this sander to remove the dated ugly popcorn (AKA spackle, spray-on, acoustic, textured etc.)ceiling in my home. The sander worked great and I was able to remove about 100 sqft per half-hour - had 3300 sqft to remove in total so the traditional method of wetting the surface and scraping was not an option. I recommend using an 80 grit sand paper for the initial removal and follow-up with a 100 grit to finish the surface for painting. I will admit, after doing about 400 sqft my shoulder were starting to hurt so I spaced the project over a couple of days.I also recommend the investment in a long vacuum hose (35 to 40 feet) such as the optional orange plastic type that can be purchased for your central vacuum and is designed for garage use. In my case I used the longer hose and placed the vacuum outside the house. Generally speaking, my shop vacuum needed to have the filter cleaned after completing approximately 100 sqft. I would also suggest using a cheeze cloth bag to serve as a pre-filter to reduce the amount of dust collected on the main filter. Using an ultra-fine vacuum filter will only plug-up too quickly, so it is better to use a regular dust collection filter. [...]

      Pros

      • Good Balance
      • Powerful

      Cons

      • Heavy
      • Too aggressive sanding

      Best Uses

      • Heavy Duty

      Comments about Drywall Sander with Dust Collection:

      This sander was a little too aggresive and would take off too much compound causing seems to crack. Perhaps with some practice it would be easier to use, but I found a better cheaper system using a 1/4 sheet sander and a shop vac.
