Depends..Da for sanding...finishing sander for clear coats..also paper makes a difference and how much you wish to spend..Sometimes guys use rotary sanders for stripping..are you confused yet?

I'm no pro, but I've been advised to use a Orbital/Dual Action (DA) Sander or an Inline Sander for larger flat areas. For beginners like us, it is recommended to use them only to take down heavy filler. Once it is thinned, use long boards for block sanding. Once you have experience using it, you can use it in a more versatile fashion. Also, DA sanders can warp sheet metal if you dig in too much on one spot... gotta keep it moving.

I bought DA sander from TCP for about $35 and an inline from Harbor Freight for about the same price. Like I said, they are awesome for taking down the filler, but recommend going manual style for the finishing touch.

I hope that helped you.

Orbital Sander. Anywhere from $40 for a piece of ****, to 300 for a well known, quality piece like a CP or Hutchins.

I bought a used hutchins at the pawn shop ten years ago and I'm still using it $40.00 They also make a da line sander that totaly blows all the others away(for large flat areas and bondo work)Whether its used or new you'll never need another one...there the best on the planet.
