I bought this to sand some patio furniture. The problem is the clips that hold the sandpaper in place are no good. The sand paper either keeps moving to the right or comes out of the clips altogether. The engineering is certainly not up to standards I have come to expect from Craftsman. The only way I was finally able to solve the problem is to put some masking tape on the edge of the sandpaper to keep it in place. On the plus side. The handle is very comfortable to hold and use. That is why I gave it one star.
this sander is just the right size for small projects; the dust collect really came in handy when I was sanding a bathroom cabinet indoors, reducing clean up time. The pads are easy to change out and stay in place well. I would recommend this sander for its value and cost.
Sander works great and I love it but it is hard to find sanding sheets for it. Even in Sears they are hard seldom in stock or not even sold.
I purchased this one and the corners started wearing faster than usual. Overall not bad.
I bought this for a project ,but my mother ended up using it and didn't want to give it back.
this is he worst sander, i've ever bought, I don't use it too often, the paper keep running of the pad all the time, I love my makita
I had this sander for about 3 years only using it 3 or 4 times. Today while sanding a small board the unit literally blew up in my hand! I wasn't hurt but chunks of the motor were falling out of the bottom. Of course when I called the store I bought it from said that it only has a year warranty against defects. So I get a new Porter Cable sander now!
Exactly what we need for a small job in the house.
It works well and is easy to use. Not too hard to handle for even small areas!
