Preview: My Thoughts on Power Tools

Last winter as we completed the planking of a 26’ lap-strake powerboat, I was offered the use of a random orbit sander to smooth the hull.  The promise of this tool was that we should be ready for the primer coat of paint in less time and effort than with the hand sanding that we usually employed.  We had never used an electric sander in the 37 year of this shop’s existence, and it was pointed out to me that for at least 30 of those years we had never even had a table saw. (Although we use one  now, but it has only a ¼ horsepower motor and would be seen as nearly useless in most shops.)
