Ok guys I got a chance to buy a barely used Ceros for $300. I know its a great sander and there's no denying that. Just I have a few different festool sanders and wondering if its really worth having that model too.

And I think it takes RO150 paper but is that a fact?

Throw me some comments

Well if I understand correctly you only collect pristine tools and rarely use them, so yeah a ceros would look good on your shelf.

It's a pro sander. I love mine. But, it's not a cheap sander even at $300. If you don't plan on using it a couple of times a week then I wouldn't bother, get a dewalt or a bosch.

It's a great sander, you will need a dust extractor for it though.

Yeah it is the 6" which is handy as It accepts the ro150 paper perfectly and still have use of the center hole and outside holes.

I read you can put the 5" pad onto it. Seems it adds a tiny bit more vibration but it works.

Just trying to figure out connecting my festool 27mm hose to it now.

See if you can find a 1 1/4" porter cable vacuum hose.

BCC....

I can't recall the fitment, but if memory recalls, the standard smaller Festool works just fine on it....it's a friction fit afterall. I do remember struggling with using tape, but I think that was on the ~ABRANET~ sanding block and not the ceros
