I just bought a Makita 1/4 sheet finish sander to compliment my Porter-Cable Block Sander (the 330). I wanted a finish sander that had dust collection, and the Makita had good written reviews. I thought a video review might be useful for anybody considering the Makita. The last few minutes of the video provides some thoughts as to why a finish sander (vs a random orbit sander) is still a good choice for the modern workshop.

Fellow LJ’s:I’ve been shopping the net for a biscuit joiner…and need your input. Here’s what I’ve learned so far: - Porter-Cable has the best handle and power switch arrangement, not to mention top quality – and the price to go with it.
