    Default Guess what the postman brought me today ?




    A right eBay bargain I think, £60.10 delivered !
    Yes it's the sander version, (hence why it was cheap, no one looks for them) but it is identical to the polisher, just swap heads.
    So, now I just need, a 110v plug, 110v transformer, some Sonus pads, and some Megs cutting compound...lol
    Might take me a couple of months to get that lot together, lots of other things to do first, but I got to start somewhere, and it's all Harrys fault !!! lol

    That is a sander, product number 7335, the main body of the tool is identical to the polisher everyone uses, product number 7424.
    You can search product numbers or just for a Porter Cable sander, just make sure it looks the same, and is random orbital. They do other sanders, but the tool body is different, don’t think you can mix them up.
    And yes, this is multi speed, it's identical, basically the same tool as the polisher.
    It is second hand, but it is in excellent condition, a little dusty, that's all !
    And of course, we get a cracking exchange rate at the moment.

    I won mine last Thursday, turned up today.
    Bid $68.99 + shipping $51.50 = $120.49 even with PayPal’s exchange rates that was £60.10 !

    Not recommending this seller, but they look ok to me, and the sander looks tidy as well, 7336 must be another variant.

    eBay.

    That's the only one I can see on there at the moment, there were a couple last week.

    Looks like the 7336 just has a "dust collection module" and as Mick's link shows if you are using it for polishing then you don't have to change the counterweight for different sized pads. I IM WATCHING
