first of all I do not have the sander, mine are old (10 to 15 years),
but how is auto body work more abusive to a sander than wood working? or what is abusive in sanding a cars body? I have done some auto body work in the past and used a air orbital sander, then before I bought the electric, (maybe before they were even offered), but to my recollection I can not see why one would use the term "abuse".

Auto body work involves long periods of sanding where as woodworking usually has smaller areas. I have a wood shop myself. Also body filler dust is some what abrasive and can get into the motor. I have heard some bad reviews on this sander. The biggest compliant seems to be with the brake and bearing.
