So true and so simple,hard to believe people screw that up.then they'll use fish eye eliminator and really make a mess.I never oiled my hutchins,well not in fifteen years anyway I think that might mess it up and if anyone uses a cheap da you asked for it anyway a good finish sander and a good gun are a must....

More than ten years of daily use with no tool oil in it at all...

that's the same thing i do. i hate it when you add a few drops to many. then when you use it shots all over the place.

this the one I have should be just fine for most da's

what about brands like DynabradeDYNALOCKE?

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.

oldred 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.
