A number of folks here referred to the LS130 as a stair master.  I bought of for the same project.  Which stock pad do you use for the tread bullnose or do you recommend the "do it yourself" pad to custom match it?

The 18 or 25 mm concave attachments work there. Sometimes it is easier to put an interface pad or two on a RO90 for bullnose (and other shapes) though.

I recently got a RO150 and CT26 and am loving them.  I think I have drank the koolaid on Festool (well my credit card hasn't quite yet), and now want to get a finish sander to go the the RO.  Right now i'm most likely looking at the ETS EC 150/3 eq-plus, but have started to think about either the DTS or RTS 400 as they look like they could be more versatile and get into places the round sanders can't.  I do all sorts of projects from remodeling (not professionally) to woodworking and all kinds from small "craft show projects" to larger cabinets and furniture.

I know in a perfect world I would just get all three of them, but I can't quite swing that.  Which would be best for me to go with now?

Thanks!

On the DTS and RTS 400; I wish these two were combined into one sander with interchangeable pads, maybe even more than the two pad shapes like a quarter sheet pad and a square one too.

Completely agree.

I am new to this forum and to Festool tools.  I have a CT26 and a previously owned Bosch 6" sander.  I would like a complimentary smaller sander for details, edges, corners etc.  I am a hobbyist do cabinets, furniture pieces, old floor reviving, etc.  I have been drawn to the Rotex 90 for it's versatility.  Is that a good choice?  I feel my final detail sanding can be done with a block.
