Step 6: Internal or external extraction?
One last question before we start: Should the Planex be set to internal or external extraction? For ready-made fillers that produce large quantities of dust (ready-made dispersion-based fillers), the answer is clear: Due to the large volumes of dust that are generated, we recommend working with external extraction. Then you can evenly sand off the surface with the Planex.
