FREE Auto Body Repair Tips – Auto Body Tools – DA Sanders, In Line Sander – How To Sand a Car

In this post, let’s talk about the most common auto body and paint tools you’ll need to get started in the game.

First off, we have the Dual Action orbital sander which is commonly known as the DA. This sander is a pneumatic (air sander) which means you’ll be needing an air compressor to power this thing up. A small compressor with at least a 10 Gal tank is needed to run this machine. Using a 30-60 Gal tank with a 2-5 HP motor is recommended.
You don’t need much air pressure to run this thing… about 7SCFM @ 90 psi. If you want to learn more about (SCFM and PSI) Click Here.
