    Cant decide whether to get the dewalt battery multi tool for outside sanding or the battery powered sander only? Which is better? Screenshot_20200925-163607_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20200925-163611_Gallery.jpg

    if you have say a bit off furniture and plenty off time eventually it will get done no good for large areas
    the sander you choose is dependent on average use

    Scrapped out small holes which needs feathering out on masonry. External doors, fascia boards etc etc taking the sharp edge off bench slats

    You would be far better off sticking with corded.
    An external door should be removed imo.
    And benched in the workshop if you want quality results.

    Masonry requires specialist sanding pads.
    The cheaper ones are silicon carbide.
    The more expensive ones are diamond.
