Straight line sanding???? ()

It's attached to my shoulder and powered by steak and potatoes. One end is a quick change adapter which holds a variety of sanding implements such as soft or hard blocks, some with sandpaper glued on.

When I want to sand with shop power I use a ROS. Could it be the swirly scratches you see are due to too much pressure or perhaps rushing with finer grits? There is also the occasional issue with some stray coarse grit particles, perhaps from insufficient cleaning between grits or more rarely, by cheap sandpaper with poorly graded abrasives.

BTW, I prefer a variable speed ROS and usually run it at a pretty slow speed. My favorites are a couple of small pneumatic sanders for smaller work.
