Re: Sanding/refinishing oak floor a DIY job?

Yeah, I was looking at worst case. but to sand 1000SqFt or more....with a orbital sander. I'd rather pay a grand and be walking on it a week later.

If you really need to break out the sander (of any kind) practice in a closet or other hidden spot first.

That a trick question?

No -- have you ever refinished 1000 or more sq ft of oak sanding with either an orbital or drum sander? Simple question

Your question was answered in the OP's first post though, had you read it: "The problem is I've never done such a thing, and neither has anyone else I know."

yes I have installed many thousand sqft hardwood floors and also finished them (including drum sanding). but I'm also not the OP. Thanks for asking.

I did read the OP's post. My question was to you. Evidently you have never refinished 50 year old floors.
