Guys, I have read all the forum info on lead paint and also researched locally what is required to remove lead paint here in QLD. I have a 90yr old queenslander with 50% of the external lead based paint flaking of. I am having problems getting a contractor to remove it due to the strict health & safety requirements so am going to do it myself. One of the requirements is to have a sander with dust extraction. From what I can find out, the festool ( fero150FEQ) sander seems to be the go. Has anyone had any experience with this sanding process and can you recommend a high speed disc sander ( with dust extraction facility ) that could do the job fast & efficiently.
