For a light, one-handed, nimble random orbital sander, you can't go wrong with the Festool 5" ETS sander. This sander is Festool's take on the classic palm finishing sander. It has a lot of great features that you have come to expect from Festool, including an effective sanding brake that prevents the sander from continuing to move and scratch the finish after you've turned the sander off and put it down. It's variable speed, with a really comfortable ergonomic grip. Festool's "Vibration Stop Balancing" reduces fatigue during prolonged use. This sander has a shorter stroke than Festool's 6" sanders and will give an even finer finish.
Other customary Festool design innovations include the plug-it cord that enables you to use a single cord that is easily detached and plugged in from one Festool tool to another; additional sanding pads for harder and softer backings that can be quickly changed (with no tools!) using the FastFix chuck system. The sanding disks all use standard hook and loop attachments. The secret to the near total dust extraction for which Festool is known is a center "Jetstream" intake hole. The air circulation also keeps the a sanding disk cool and with no dust buildup the sander will cut faster, cooler, cleaner, and disks will last longer. Comes packed in a Systainer 1.
