To start of this is a great little orbital. I have used others in the past and have found this one to be the best, or the one that I like the most as of lately. I was at one point a really big supporter of the variable speed porter cable orbital, I was able to use them on a daily basis. At the shop we used to really beat the hell out of those sanders, but they never seemed to quite. I mean some of them did but most of the time they just kept on chugging. Only problem with the PC though is that they vibrated like crazy, and if sanding for long periods of time it would give your hands a work out. I have also used the Dewalt orbital. I didn’t have it but two days before I sent it back, it was absolutely terrible. It made this loud rumbling/rattle while you where using it, also like the porter cable it to seemed to vibrate quite a bit. This new orbital that I have now by Bosch, def takes the cake when it comes to how quiet it operates. Ive beat it up a bit and it doesn’t seem to be waring, its holding up to daily use. The vibration with this sander is very minimal and it produces a great swirl free finish. The only downfall that I see with this orbital is the micro filter dust system. Not really necessary in my point of view. If it had a canister like the PC it would top all other sanders in my opinion. I am still a firm believer in the porter cable sanders but for now I prefer the Bosch. If you are looking into orbitals these are the two that I would choose from. If there are others out there that do or do not feel the same way about these orbitals let me know I would love to hear what other people have to say about the orbitals that are out on the market today.

Just finished my first farmers market here in sunny San Diego. The market takes place every Sunday between the hours of 9 and 2, and is located at the intersection of Canon and Rosecrans. I had a really great time, the vendors next to me where very helpful. They could tell that I was a newbie. The market is great has all sorts of locally grown produce and crafts. The day was a complete success granted it was my first showing. I was very happy with the appearance of my booth. I do have some changes that I will make for next time though. You can get more information at Birans Farmers Markets about the market. You should also come down next week and give my booth a look, I would love the support. Check back tomorrow to see whats happening in to shop.
