Actually in Santa Cruz, those pics were from a road trip.

A few updates. I chose to go with the 6" Ceros 5mm orbit and the Rotex 90. I don't love the transformer on the ceros, but it sounds like it will do everything from finishing to pretty rough work, and I have to think over time, the weight savings will be nice. Briefly flirted with the Deros, but not too much info on those yet. And then the RO 90 because most of the really aggressive stuff we have to do is over relatively small areas, beveling glass edges etc. We'd been doing it with a 1" wide roloc 3m disc on a die grinder, which seemed to be a tool of choice for the task in the few glass shops Ive been in. And the corner detail ability seemed liked it would be useful. I love amazon prime, arriving tomorrow. Will let you know my thoughts. I kinda see a rotex 150 and an ras 115 in my future as well, but for now, this is all the sander purchasing my significant other will authorize

Think forgiveness, not permission. You can always use another sander.

PERFECT JOHN. We 'forgive' you for not getting your shop more together. And... 'permission' to make it happen this year......
It could be worse, your shop could be in Boston, and actually snowed under, instead of covered in plastic.....

As a matter of fact it's the weather that's currently holding me up. It was up in the 80s last week, and has now plunged down into the 70s.

You might have to break out the long-sleeve T-shirts.

I mowed my lawn for the second time yesterday in a Tshirt. Amazing.

I plugged in the New Holland LS-170 this morning so I can shovel the driveway when it stops snowing.
