Porter Cable 5" (127mm) random orbital sander. Purchased from woodshop replacing equipment. Hook and loop attachment method, with 8 hole vent pattern). We got a good number of 5" sanding discs with the sander. Many are sitting in a coffee can. They range from 30 micron, 50 micron, and 100 micron, up to about 220 grit.

All around great, but very aggressive sander and it won't fit in to corners since it is circular.

The manual can be found here: Manual.
