I have a few 8mm polisher and 1 of them is going to get converted to hopefully and orbital wood sander.

All comments welcome. If you think it bad idea please feel free to comment.

what backing plate should I use to accomplish this for sanding or finish sanding.

2nd project is makita rotary I want to figure out what equipment and setup are available to convert to a sanding tool with large 6 inch for heavy duty project like deck or siding.

Thank you
