I picked up a free 90 gallon that was "scratched beyond use as a display." I used that to practice on and now I'm working on my new 220 that I picked up from another member. It also had some pretty severe scratches but I've already done the initial sanding and taken out most all of the scratches. It is definitely more intense and time consuming but it's coming along nicely.

You did a great job, it looks really good now. I was doing something similar myself and I almost ruined everything. I always try to fix everything around the house myself like any other "guy" guy. Well I looked for a different types of power sanders and I picked a really good one from Makita, but I used the wrong sanding paper. My wife was really mad and she really got fed up with my "fixing" around the house. Anyway, the sander is really good, I tried it on different things with right sandpaper and It does a really good job. It is good for my home stuff and really does not cost much.
