I've watched an TOH episode where they used an orbital sander, and it looked like they took it down to bare wood. But, other articles suggest using a drum sander for taking down to hard wood.
My floors are pretty worn in some places and okay in other areas. Orbital sanders seem to cause less problems for first time floor refinishers (like me), so I'd like to use the orbital instead.
So, if I'm taking a fairly worn floor down to bare wood, is an orbital okay to use?
