Just looking for some advice on which tool to purchase
I have a few hair line cracks and chips in the gel coat on the boat that I used a Dremel tool to open the area and then have used a Gel coat filler to fill it.
Didn't have a decent sander or polisher to finish the job off so need to buy one.
I was looking at Bosch Orbital Sander PEX 400 Ae (370w 125mm disc)
Listing even has a boat picture in the listing.. woop woop ;-)
But also looking at a Silverline Polisher / Sander 1200w 180mm.
DIY 1200W Sander Polisher 180mm
Two very different looking tools...
Except for the price
does anyone recommend one more than the other in the long run?? and for using with boats? possibly other tasks i hadn't thought of?
The Orbital Sander with the smaller head
does look like it will be handy on harder to reach areas. To begin with ill be doing the cockpit
area so the small size for sanding
i think would be useful (Boat is a 37ft with lowered GRP stern cockpit).
This winter I will be taking the boat out of the water
and understand I will need something bigger than a 125mm head
to polish and sand the hull
and plan to buy another then or even a larger one to do the hull
Can anyone advise are orbital sanders any good for sanding
and polishing small areas with Gel coat?
for the moment I'm wanting to sort quite a few chips and hairline cracks around the boat in the Gel coat.
Appreciate any advice you can give. :-)
