wanting to use a sander combo in Dallas TX in Sept
« on: August 29, 2013, 11:03 AM »
My son is moving out of a house and they have several scratches on their wooden floors that need to be worked out.  I have the RO125 but am unwilling to pack it to fly to Dallas.  I have not had much luck traveling with tools on planes.  Is there anyone who would be willing to let me use a 125 or 150 to work his scratches out?  He lives north of Highland Park on Echo Glen.  I need to sand and buff in matching color.  Thanks in advance.

If you have the tool in a regular Systainer, can that be carried on as carry-on luggage?  Then, it would simply fit in the overhead compartment. Or are there TSA rules against the sander being carried on?   [blink] [blink] [blink]
Not as many Sanders as PA Floor guy.....

Yes, there is the normal systainer.  It's not worth the effort as I have other business that requires other luggage.  I don't trust the airlines after having had other experiences in the past.  Also, it doesn't really work without the vacuum.  thanks, tho.

terrific.  I have the 125 and mini.  So yours is close to what I'm used to.  Can I send you my number to connect?
Just so you know I'm not full of hot air...here is my website:

You're very kind.  I just wanted Dogie Dad to know that I was not trying to jerk him around.  I did this once before when installing some French doors in Abilene for my brother and met the nicest people you can imagine.  It's possible to ship what i have,...but it's much easier AND more fun to see if there are any FOG people out there!!  I enjoy that far more.  Thanks again.
