I got this sander because I had one specific project, but wanted something i could keep for future use. It was a little small for the job I needed but for the amount of sanding projects I have it is perfect and can be cleaned and stored easily
The local store that I purchased this sander from does not carry the replacement sanding pads. They are not available online, and have a hole pattern that appears to be proprietary which leaves me unable to purchase an off-brand. It is absolutely useless to me now and has taken up way too much of my time trying to find sanding pads that will fit and function properly.
Sears or no one else sells sandpaper to fit this item!!! Craftsman does not support or sell Craftsman items sold thru Sears!!!! This tool is worthless and Sears should should not even be selling this worthless obsolete item!!!!
Sander arrived but in poor condition. Velcro sanding face was only partially attached and is missing dust catching bag.
