The Porter-Cable Restorer boasts many of the benefits of both a belt sander and an angle grinder. When compared to a belt sander, it is lighter, easier to handle, and more versatile, thanks to the wide variety of accessories. Weighing in at just 4.5 lbs, the Restorer is less than half the weight of most belt sanders. It is also much more compact for maneuvering in tight areas. The barrel-shaped roller quickly flings debris away from the surface, which decreases heat build-up and clogged abrasives. When compared to an angle grinder, the Restorer yields a much smoother finish, particularly on wood, where the flat roller helps prevent gouging and the abrasive can be aligned with the grain. The tool is well-balanced, with a pistol grip for one-handed use, and a front palm grip for working vertically or overhead.


  • Use to buff, sand, grind, polish, scrub or clean wood, metal, masonry and fiberglass
  • Accepts a wide range of quick-change roller sleeves and wheels for use on metal, wood, cement, and more
  • Connect a vacuum to the dust port to collect debris during use
  • Easy accessory changes with the quick-release end cover
  • Lock-on button decreases fatigue during long sanding sessions
  • Powerful 3.5 amp variable-speed motor

Package includes the Paint and Rust Remover Drum—ideal for removing caked-on coatings and excessive rust buildup.

This rugged abrasive wheel powers through paint and rust with minimal clogging. Made of hard-textured, nonwoven fleece, it is ideal for cleaning and descaling welds, and pore-deep removal of rust, oxidation and coatings. It can be used on wood, metal and masonry.

Great tool
I had a cabinet with at least three coats if paint on it. I decided to try my new Restorer out and see what it would do on this thick paint. Little over an hour with a few breaks and I was down to the bare wood again and no gooey mess to clean us. Yes I worked it hard and it kept running like a champ.

Handy time-saver
I used this to remove old paint on a 300' long railing. It was quick work. I also used the sanding drum to refine some curved arches on a screen porch project. It is great for any project where you need an aggressive tool to strip or sand.

Incredible tool
This is an amazing sander. It is very versatile. I've sanded metal, old doors, stripped off varnish, and cleaned off rust with its many different sanding drums.

Woodworking Experience:
I have other Porter Cable tools and they do well for me. I bought the Restorer because I was going to paint my house. It did exactly what they said it would. It took off loose paint and sanded smooth. It sped up my prep time tremendously. I would recommend this tool for anyone. The only issue is local stores don't have replacement drums. The package came with pictures of all the drums, but who do I order them from.

Is it appropriate to sand the end grain of a cutting board?
Tony N on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will work with a little practice. As with many sanders you have to keep it moving. It’s very effective
Does this come with the storage bag?
Carol W on Mar 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Mine (Rockler #55507) did not. The bigger kit (Rockler #57759) does.
