Using Dewalts multi-tool for sanding question


Trim guy

Recommended Posts

For those who use their Dewalt multi tools for sanding, where do you find sand paper? I like 120-150 grit.

I've ordered Dewalts DWASPTRI123.

But they are quite a bit small for Dewalts sanding pad. So I'm using them with the corded Fein that has a smaller sanding pad

I find the sanding accessory a crappy piece of plastic. Maybe I am using it wrong, but when I use it on detailing the velcro burns up in one corner making the sanding pad come off. Maybe I'm pushing too hard, but I burned up 2 of those in a relative short period of time.

Your not alone there

my multi tool gets used more for sanding than anything else as we do alot of custom work. i buy the paper at my local curtis lumber store. lowes carries the smaller size but you will have to buy the smaller rockwell pads also. they fit just like the dewalt pads. i go thru alot of pads, i found that if you use it at a slower speed the pads will last longer, i also keep rotating the pad, the dewalt quick release makes this simple.
