hi,

i am looking to sand of the paint of some panels in preperation for them to be spayed painted.

i know spray paint workshops use electric sander to remove the paint from panels. I wanted to know where to find something similar.

sanding by hand will take hrs and now fun.

cheers

Actually most paint shops I have worked in use air powered sanders they being somewhat less prone to dying from paint dust, occasionally you find one with "Festo" sander vacuum units which are electric and oh so expensive, basicly any random pattern orbital sander will do the job those using the velcro backed 8" disks being prefered over the usual Bunnings el cheapo units, cut it down with 80 grit to start with finifsh it off with 180 or 240 grit before priming.
