On to the sanding, and a little test I wanted to run. First this is a new sander that just arrived today so I wanted to play with it at least a little. And I wanted to see how well the little bag works at picking up dust. This is a really bad situation for having the bag picking up dust because of the fact a lot of the dust just falls off the sides but none the less I wanted to see at least that much.
After sanding off most of the old paint it looks like this:
I still need to wipe it down and maybe put some sealer on it before repainting.
Then on to the test. The pile on the left is not collected dust, the one on the right is the collected. It is hard to see in the picture but I think perhaps it collected 70% since there is still more in the bag I didn't work at getting out...... Any way this a better then I expected but I still think I will normally go with the vacuum attached anyway.
