It is a powerful, high speed rotary planer and effects your work piece the same way a planer or router would. I suspect that it is fantastic on unblemished, un-barnacled-pitted paint, even multi-layered, but I would be cautious about how it reacts to divots, dings and especially the edges of glass laminations if they are proud of the surface at all. Perhaps Bletso has some input on this?

Re: PaintShaver vs Rotary Sander vs ???

Actually, with the right tools and fairing material it is not that bad. It is certainly easier than the shaving process. This was the hull after shaving and as it is now, years layer. Excuse the pics as they are scanned. They were taken before digital.

You certainly get a 'feel' for the process early.
