Q: I'm trying to purchase a car sander.

asked by on

My husband does auto body work professionally and he complains that he needs a better sander. I would like to purchase one for him as a gift but i am unsure which brand would be best to get. Any help will be really appreciated.

You should have your husband give you pictures of tools he needs with descriptions so you get the tools he needs instead of tools he does not need. There are many different types of sanders. There are also many brands to choose from. Makita, Dewalt are top brands.
