    Craftsman Palm Sander is SO easy to use!!

    I am not the handiest of people, I must admit.  Our dining room table has been looking horrible-crayon and marker stains all over, an iron fell on it, etc...So, I decided to try to sand it and stain it myself.  Someone recommended a palm sander would help to make this job a cinch.  I headed to Sears and purchased this Craftsman Palm Sander.  My job was made so much easier b/c of this sander!  I thought I was in for HOURS of work-was I wrong!  It is light to handle, and just took care of my table in no time.  I am excited to have finished this project!  I can't wait to show everyone my "new" table.

    Good palm sander

    Sometimes air tools are just better, especially when you just want to be able to throttle it ever so slightly. Sander seems to be working fine so far, for my light workshop use it seems to fit the bill!

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Fell apart after less than a half hour of use...

    Worked great until the foam rubber pad disintegrated and the disc flew off...proof that craftsman tools no longer worth buying... AND no, I did not miss use it. My brother has one that is more than 20 years old and it is still going strong...they are just made with crappy materials now. Spend your money elsewhere...

    6" orbital palm sander, air tool, works as advertised

    This is my first orbital palm sander and I'm impressed by how light it is and easy to use. Changing sandpaper pads is a snap. Appears to be a good unit. Three concerns: First, the owner's manual assumes that the user is familiar with air tools because the diagram that shows where to manually add oil wouldn't help a novice at all. Second, the owner's manual gives no information on where the speed adjustment is or how to use it. Third, the speed adjustment was so tight that I thought that I would break the lever trying to get it to move. After lubricating, the speed adjustment lever moves, but with more force than should be needed.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    great for auto body work

    I was working on my toyota last year and I needed a good palm sender.  I knew where to go for it so I went to sears and purchased this sender.  I am very proud that I bought it and it is still going strong.  very light and durable.  I love it.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Craftsman 19960 19960 Air 6" Palm Sander

    This sander worked great for the first year, then just after the warranty period the sanding disk fell out of the sander base. Unfortunately I did not have the extended warranty. I still use the sander today I just have to put the **** back into the sander when it falls out. Operation wise everything still works and I will continue to use it until it stops completly and most likely I will buy another one plus the warranty.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    too bad they dont tell you that it needs a min of 90 psi and the 6n gal compresser that claims to be 150 psi cant maintain that 150 psi for longer than a nano second. Gerr

    Noisy

    So far its been a good tool. As with others i've seen the speed adjustment is very touchy. The sander is very loud, there is minimal packing in the muffler. My shopmates quickly reccomended a piece of sponge in the exhaust to quiet it down.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
