Which is the best all round type to get (belt, orbital etc)
has anyone tried a cordless?

Makita Belt sander is great but noisy, only good for really big areas
Would prefer to remove my right arm than give up my Fein Multimaster for detail stuff.
Cordless..?? They are usually high wattage so can't see them lasting that long.

It is only the second one I have owned, so they are reliable.

Belt for shifting/truing stuff...
Sheet sander for gentler stock removal...
And as above but for ease of access into the difficult bits...
And for stock removal and good finish (with minimal pressure)...

The initial jobs are cleaning up some WD floor boards post extension, and smoothing joints on some plaster board, but I'd like a good all round machine
