Hi there, I've sort of fallen into a whole bunch of hardwood floor jobs over the past 6 months. I'm still learning. I've been using a machine called the varathane easy sander, a 3 disk orbital sander. I had a go with a drum sander the first time and had a lot of issues with stop/start marks. I find the 3 disk orbital sander I'm using now does a really nice job in the end, but it's real slow! I was wondering if I used the drum sander to take off the finish and then switched to the orbital sander for the other passes would it minimize and help get rid of those stop/start marks. I like refinishing floors, but it's slow going the way I am doing it right now. If I could speed it up I might consider doing more. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Colin
