Summary: I really love this mini power tool! I had never seen anything like that in stores before, but desperately needed some XS version of a belt sander/orbital sander for very tiny spots (I'm doing some major remodeling in an historical home).
Summary: As another reviewer noted, this tool is excellent for grinding door strikes. I remodel hotels and recently did a project where I had to swap all of the guest room doors and locks (almost 100 rooms).
this is the most amazing and useful micro sander on the market

Summary: WOW. this is the most amazing and useful micro sander on the market. you can carve with this thing and large grit sanding paper or quickly refine an edge or surface with a finer grit. a real marvel of power and accuracy. the lightsaber of sanders!
Summary: Love this baby. Well constructed, solid, powerful, easy to use, great battery life - everything you need in a cordless jig saw and nothing you don't. I buy all Makita 18-volt tools so I can share batteries, and haven't been disappointed in any of them.
Summary: This a good quality product. It runs quietler than I expected, that I think is a result of strong materials and quality bearings. The only limitation is that Makita only supplies belts up to 240 grit.
Summary: The shape of the body and handle, and the light that shines on the cut makes this more pleasant especially on the bigger woodworking projects. I have most of the Makita 18V LXT set of tools since they were first introduced, and none of them have broken yet.
