Hello Fellow Lumberjocks
Bought this sander about a year ago. It had low price. Worked good the first time and has not let me down since. Not a tool I use everyday, but find myself using it enough that I always keep it handy,... within reach.
Coarse grit sandpaper removes stock quickly and the tool is easy to guide and control.
Gave it 4 stars because we know it is a made-in-China-throw-away.
For $35 bucks it’s a good deal.
If it died tomorrow, would probably buy another, rather then spend big-bucks and buy a brand name piece.
