Good little sander, with a pedigree!

Robert B. Cushman "R B Cushman", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a good little sander . . . a "consumable", as we have used them in our machine shop for many years. When they wear out, they are thrown away and replaced with another one . . . no big deal. (For home use, I'm sure the average "user" would seldom if ever wear one out.

I <3 Makita

  • Summary: Great machine. Love all my Makita tools. I don't really have anything specific to say which means they did a great job of designing their tool. You shouldn't have to think about it. You just use it. Good weight, good shape, easy to use, etc. Also, I love their color scheme. ;)

  • Summary: I absolutely love this sander. I had a sander that I inherited from my father that absolutely wore you out when sanding for extended periods of time. I purchased this one based on other reviews and 100% agree with them.

  • Summary: A truly wonderful sander in every aspect. Smooth operation, great quality, easy to hold. Sands very well, gets right up to inside edges. I have been using my orbitals only for years and regret not purchasing one of these sooner!!!

... think an old-fashioned orbital would become one of my favorite tools, but it is now

AmProCarp, Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: Didn't think an old-fashioned orbital would become one of my favorite tools, but it is now. Bought it for inside corners, but it removes material so fast, and it is so light and fairly quiet, its very comfortable to use. Doesn't squirrel around. Leaves a nice finish. Cheaper paper.

Makita, like others, not what they used to be

P. Dean, Amazon
4 December 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this sander because of Makita's (former) reputation as a quality maker of handheld sanding equipment. I WANTED this sander to be a quality piece of sanding equipment. When I took the sander out of the case, I could see immediately that the base was bent/warped.

Great Little Sander at a Good Price

Woodworker in Georgia, Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: This is my second or third one of these little sanders. They just work great. And for the price with a case (which I wanted) you can't beat it. I've used these to prep porch floors for painting, prep refurbished wooden garage doors, prep deck railings as well as little jobs like closet shelves and...

This is an awesome little sander

  • Summary: This is an awesome little sander . . . I like that it uses regular sand paper, not adding to the cost of buying specially, precut pieces. I used several different grades on my project (refinishing a pine table and a birch chair), and the results were great.

  • Summary: I had a Makita palm sander I inherited from my dad 18 years ago, and unfortunately lent it out never to see it again. But I loved that sander & it refinished alot of furniture with me.
