great little sander
I bought this sander to replace my old B&D that died. The first thing that i noticed was that I didnt have a numb hand after using it. This sander doesnt want to walk all over the board like my other ones do, the dust collection works real well and the variable speed is great. I picked this up on sale so it was a real great deal. My father borrowed it a few weeks ago to finish a project he was working on, and now he owns one too.

Orbital Delight

Bought this for finish sanding on a retirement gift. Nice product for the price! Hooks up to my dust collection system no problem. hook n loop discs are a breeze to swap out. Variable speed is nice as well. Nice addition to my woodshop. Once again Craftsman didn't disappoint!

Nice Sander....but

The sander worked great for about the first hour of use. The vibration from it is very little and very easy to use for long periods of time. However, after about an hour of use, the bagger that comes with the sander already formed holes. I emptied the sander once even though it was only about half full after about using it for 45 minutes. It was after I came back the next day and used it for about 20 minutes or so that I all of a sudden had dust coming out of the bag. I guess I could have used my shop vac, but was sanding the boards in a limited area that prevented me from using it. Overall the sander was great, but gave it a good rating because of the bagger. I have since returned it and will try a new one in the upcoming days.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Does the job!

Bought this to sand down some metal file cabinets in order to refinish them. Used it for about 6 hours or so and not a single problem. Great inexpensive buy and easy to use!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
