A type of orbital sander, sheet sanders come in different sizes based on the dimensions of the abrasive paper attached to the sanding plate. While they operate in the same way, the different sizes make the sheet sander slightly better suited to various tasks. Unlike random orbital sanders, sheet sanders are helpful for corners and straight borders because of their shape.
¼ Sheet Sanders
Using the smallest amount of sanding material, the ¼ sheet sander is ideal for intricate jobs. It uses a piece of abrasive paper that is ¼ the size of a standard piece of sandpaper, which is typically 9 x 11 inches.
? Sheet Sanders
Offering more coverage, the ? sheet sander uses a piece of abrasive paper that is ? the size of a regular piece of sandpaper. This is typically used as a finishing sander.
½ Sheet Sanders
The largest of the three, this has a sanding plate ½ the size of standard sandpaper, making it better at slightly larger sanding jobs.
Sheet sanders are great for smoothing down and prepping surfaces, while also providing a fine finish. They are more effective at finishing than for tackling particularly tough surfaces such as paint or varnish. Toolstation stocks a wide range of sheet sanders from brands such as DeWalt, Hikoki and Bauker.
