    • @Coop, I recently purchased a pack as well. Onky used a couple of disks so far. They seem to do well on flat surfaces, but I use my ROS to shape a lot of curves, too. The grit tends to separate from the backing when force is concentrated on a small portion of the disk. Honestly, I still prefer the Shopsmith abrasives that I used to buy at the big blue store. Unfortunately, my local store has dropped Shopsmith in favor of Craftsman, which is even worse than the cheap Gator brand that they also sell.
    • I forget where the reviews of orbital sanding disc originated but one of the top picked discs were the 3M Xtract. I ordered an expensive box of the 150 to try them. Agreed with the review that they are aggressive and long lasting but that’s where my love ends. Used with my Festool ETS 150, they are but impossible to remove from the sanding pad. I don’t know if it’s the heat build up during sanding or what, but it’s unlike any other disc I have ever used. Not worth the cost of replacing the $45 Festool pad. 
    • If there is one item in the shop I could dump money on to improve, it would be the dust removal system.
    • Most people on this forum are hobbyists. That means that the goal is not always "getting by," but for some it's enjoying the process and the interaction with the tools. I "get by" with my HF DC, but my next tool purchase will likely be a better one. Better DC = less sawdust and fine particulates in the air = healthier lungs, less cleanup, and fewer sawdust boogers. Cost/benefit analysis is different for everyone.
