great little sander

I bought this sander to replace my old B&D that died. The first thing that i noticed was that I didnt have a numb hand after using it. This sander doesnt want to walk all over the board like my other ones do, the dust collection works real well and the variable speed is great. I picked this up on sale so it was a real great deal. My father borrowed it a few weeks ago to finish a project he was working on, and now he owns one too.

Bought this for finish sanding on a retirement gift. Nice product for the price! Hooks up to my dust collection system no problem. hook n loop discs are a breeze to swap out. Variable speed is nice as well. Nice addition to my woodshop. Once again Craftsman didn't disappoint!

Nice Sander....but

|

The sander worked great for about the first hour of use. The vibration from it is very little and very easy to use for long periods of time. However, after about an hour of use, the bagger that comes with the sander already formed holes. I emptied the sander once even though it was only about half full after about using it for 45 minutes. It was after I came back the next day and used it for about 20 minutes or so that I all of a sudden had dust coming out of the bag. I guess I could have used my shop vac, but was sanding the boards in a limited area that prevented me from using it. Overall the sander was great, but gave it a good rating because of the bagger. I have since returned it and will try a new one in the upcoming days.

Does the job!

Bought this to sand down some metal file cabinets in order to refinish them. Used it for about 6 hours or so and not a single problem. Great inexpensive buy and easy to use!

Easy to use sander

|

I bought this to do detail sanding around newly installed windows. It is easy to control and pretty clean to use with its dust collection bag.

Woodworkers, this sander makes life easier!

|

Got one of these for Christmas and wondered what I'd use it for. Then I had to refinish a bathroom vanity and it worked perfectly. I recently refinished a gun stock and this thing made taking the old finish off and smoothing out the scratches and dents EASY! I was very glad I had it because I'd have spent 5-10 times the amount of time it took with this tool. The sanding pads also tend to last a long time when sanding wood and don't get clogged up.

Love the Craftsman 5 in. Random Orbit Sander

|

The Craftsman Random Orbit sander is so quiet and easy to use. Most of the other sanders that we have purchased to do sheet rock work have been very loud. It also has multiple speeds depending on what kind of sanding you need to do. Love it and recommend it.

Good Bang For Your Buck

|

Just finished sanding the inside of my cabin with this sander and it worked great. I especially like the fact that my vacuum hooked right up to it and the dust was minimal. Easy to change papers and the variable speed is nice. I bought a skil at about the same price previous to this one and it didn't last half as long.

Finishing Was Never So Easy.. and Clean!

|

Random Orbit Sanders are perfect for any workshop, and this Craftsman version is no less than that. It sands without making indentations because of the random pattern, and it fits universal hook & loop discs. The best about it is the built in vacuum and bag attachment, or attach a hose from a wet/dry vac for big messes. The residual dust this sander leaves is virtually nill. I love this sander.
