I just bought a new random orbit sander, the small festool one, and was wondering how fast the disk should spin. In my memory the disk of my old machine, a bosch spun much faster, but that one did not have a brake system. I used the sander on surfaces with various curvature and using only little pressure, but the disk doesn't spin that fast. Is this normal?
I am just afraid to mishandle or break it, after all it was quite expensive. but the dust collection is awesome !!
Thanks and regards,
