Rotex sander size head
« on: March 08, 2017, 03:39 AM »
Wondering if you can change the head size on the rotex sanders like you can with the mirka? I do a lot of sculptural work and could see the 3" being good for small curves, the 5" with a 6" piece of sandpaper good for transitions and the 6" good for normal flat work. I currently use a variable speed angle grinder with sanding discs that work well and the mirka 6" that does well on the flat stuff but isn't getting much use elsewhere.

No.  Different sized bayonets.

They're each substantially different machines.

I read that you can use the 6" pad on the 5" ETS EC. But that doesn't give you Rotex.
Please check, before relying on my words.

I'd say get the RO90. Brilliant little sander and might give you additional use cases with the triangle head...
