Hi all

I bought a wooden picnic table and benches 2 years ago and it’s been sitting there with no cover on ever since .

I’m wanting to Sand everything down and repaint so we can use it this year.

Which type of Sander would be the best to use?

A belt Sander of a random orbital Sander?

I don’t have either bit know I need one as it’s to big to do by hand

Thanks

I have a belt sander and find it a bit bulky and aggressive although its good for turning upside down and clamping and doing smaller pieces that way. It makes short work of flat surfaces but if you catch a corner it will round it. If I had a lot of doors to sand and they were flat then I would use it that is why I got it, also used for rust removal of small metal parts when clamped upside down to a bench

so I would go with an orbital disk lighter and perhaps more versatile.

Thanks for the reply boxedin, not sure if it would make a difference to your answer but I forgot to add that I have a huge decking area to sand and stain this year as well

For that I'd use the cheap belt sander (parkside) cost about £30 but I'd still get an orbital for the other stuff and just general use in future like window sills, skirting boards architrave
