Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue
A random orbit sander is a lot easier to use than a drum sander and much more forgiving
The drum sander rentals available in most places will leave big divots if you don't keep moving all the time, pausing for an instant can be a problem. However drum sanders will work faster than random orbit sanders
So if I have no experience with a drum sander, would it just be better for me to use a random orbital sander for a project like this.
You're much less likely to make a mistake with a random orbit sander
OK, that sounds good, I think I will go that route. Is there any other advice you have for me for restoreing a deck.
If you haven't done so already, using a pressure washer is a lot easier than scrubbing the deck using a deck cleaner with a scrub brush
I plan on starting this weekend. Thanks for your help.
