I my opinion and I will probably catch some flack here, I like the Hutchins model 3500 the best. I have two of them but I only need one. I just bought the second one because I couldn't turn down the price. And speaking of price they are kind of pricey but they are worth it. Hutchins is a great company, been around as long as I can remember and I have never had any problem with any of their tools.

You asked what's the best DA? That would be the Hutchins but there are some less costly DAs out there that will get the job done just stay away from the Harbor Freight types. If you want the best most reliable DA then check out Hutchins.

Da

One thing to keep in mind is any air sander will use a lot of air and you might want to post the compressor you are using to help in that choice,constant stopping and starting can be a pain.

I have had a few da sanders through the years and wanted to add the smoothest and lightest in my box is a Dynabrade 6 inch. I have oppted not to oil it since new figuring if it dies or locks up it will have been worth not getting oil out the exhaust onto a panel causing a fisheye.
More than ten years of daily use with no tool oil in it at all...

Da

Use common sense! remove the disc,oil the DA away from your work,run for a minute,wipe it down,reattach the disc and go to work.The best way to screw anything up is to hurry,hurry,hurry ,take your time and do it right.

I would go with a dynabrade, or a hutchins. Both are VERY good sanders.
