And it comes with the dust bag which some don't. It's a decent quality tool for a great price. It arrived on time and was packaged well. I didn't notice any bad characteristics. That means fewer scratches and a smoother finish.

The BLACK+DECKER BDEQS300 was undoubtedly our number one 1/4 Sheet Sanders. That being said, there are a few other superb options when it comes to 1/4 Sheet Sanders. We have a breakdown of them here.

Genesis is yet another leading producer of Sanders. They build the tool next on our lineup. Genesis's Finishing Sanders are great as well. It was terrific to test the GPS2303. I was very satisfied using this tool!

This Finishing Sander is only $24.99. That is a great deal for a high quality Sander like the GPS2303 by Genesis. The Genesis GPS2303 is truly a sound alternative. Of you are uncertain about our number one pick, I'd suggest you opt for this Sander.

The DEWALT DWE6411K and the 380 by PORTER-CABLE are worthy of a look as well. Both tool brands are well known for their high quality Sanders. Both tools are highly rated also.

Rotating the bag so the zipper is on top, helps. This 3 amp sander is light but solid and powerful. I like that it fits perfectly in my small hand. I also liked the extra sandpaper that was included. This is enough to generally give one pause.

I've had no problem with the sandpaper staying put. I am sure it would be fine for the average man. It arrived on time and was packaged well. Red oak and teak are what I sanded today. Such a daunting task to sand it down by hand.

It makes so much more sense that my old sanders. I just used the included bag and no vacuum attached. It arrived on time and was packaged well. Sandpaper loading is very well designed. That means fewer scratches and a smoother finish.

When I stop pressing down, the sander turns off. Very nice of them to include a 80 grit sheet. Overall I'm really pleased with this little sander. Save me money, do the job well and look good. The suction fan on this sander does all of the work.
