Can I use this tool for projects other than woodworking?

Absolutely! This tool is designed to cater to both beginners and experienced woodworkers. Its user-friendly features and ergonomic design make it easy to use for beginners, while its exceptional performance meets the demands of experienced professionals.

Can this be used to help flatten a large wooden slab?

Well, there's no substitute for either a wide belt sander, CNC machine or using a router sled as a flattening solution for larger slabs however.... As standard, your GEM 11-inch orbital sander (with dust shroud) comes with a firm drive pad. That's because we've found that our customers much prefer it for all sanding and flattening applications. The firm drive pad does a much better job of taking down those high spots, especially, when used with more agressive paper such as our 80-grit Fabramesh Aluminum Oxide sanding discs.
