For me, it is painting.
I use to hate that also, but got a Bosch RO which in aggressive mode removes material so fast, it makes short work of sanding. I use 150 grit throughout, start in aggressive mode and then switch it to fine mode, which finishes fine for a clear coat. Also great for flattening table tops in no time. I have the one in the video, which is now obsolete and dread the day it may die, as the new model looks a bit weird.Sanding. That's why there are 5 powered ones on my tool shelf. Anything to make it go quicker!
