Top 10 Best Corded Sanders

What Real People Are Saying About The BLACK+DECKER BDEMS600

Great little sander, fun to use, dust collector works ok.
  • KP - August 5, 2015

Love this little sander. It does the trick and is fun/easy to use. I give it 4-stars because there is not a good seal connecting the dust collecting receptacle to the unit. I have had issues with drywall/paint dust all around the back of the unit, clearly escaping from the place where the dust bin connects to the unit. I say "connects" instead of "clips on" or "clicks in" because you just kindof push it on. There is no satisfying click to let you know it has been attached firmly. So I could definitely be using it wrong, or maybe mine came defective or missing a gasket or something, but it appeared to arrive in perfect condition with no obvious physical problems. In other words, it might just be a design flaw on the unit.

That said, although it leaks dust all over the back of the unit and makes it a bit more cumbersome to wield in tight spaces, I have to empty the receptacle several times during each job, so it is clearly taking a lot of particles out of the air. I vacuum the thing empty with my shop vac, by the way, instead of dumping in the trash, since dumping in the trash ends up sending the dust back out into the air haha.

I purchased this sander to help with redoing my deck. I own another orbital sander with a sheet lock and I hated it, the sheets kept on tearing off and not staying on and I would go thru a lot of torn sandpaper and very slow sanding progress. So I got fed up and was looking for an alternative sandpaper attachment to sand my deck. I chose this black and decker mouse sander because it had a finger attachment which could get between the poles of the deck and into tight places, but I primarily purchased it for the velcro attachment for the sandpaper. I also purchased it because the price was very reasonable. I would have to say, I am very pleased with how well the sandpaper stays in place withe the velcro attachment, it's like day and night from the stupid metal sheet lock on the other sander I own. It was so easy and had enough power to sand my deck, I was very pleased with this little sander. The reason I only give this sander 4 stars is about halfway thru the deck project the velcro on the finger attachment wore down and sandpaper would no longer stay on. I went to ACE Hardware & Lowe's to see if they sold extra finger attachments but they did not, so a word of advice if you are going to be doing a big project with this sander, purchase an extra finger attachment so you aren't delayed with your project & you might as well order extra sandpaper because I ended up purchasing both to finish my deck.
Overall, I would purchase this sander again, I would never ever purchase a sander with a metal sheet lock, worse design ever!

Awesome tool! Must have it!

Amazing tool! I refurnished my front door , a 60yrs old door, like nothing! Works awesome , a little bit dusty inside. Doesn't hold dust 100% but reduces a lot when inside. Outside jobs is a must! Inside is very good but do not expect 100% holding dust!


This is NOT my husband's sander! I have been married 39 years and waiting on a sander. My husband NEVER bothers to get tools I can use, so I finally decided to start buying MY tools. MY first is this little sander! Next??? Drill?? Then Router?? Then??? 30 x 40 WORKSHOP! I am on a roll!

Finally had to replace my old old Mouse. 100% satisfied with my new one!

After years of using my very old MOUSE, it finally broke and I had to replace it. I refinish furniture, so my Mouse gets heavy use. I LOVE the new one. It is so lightweight that I am never sore after using it, even when used for a couple hours straight. It's so quiet compared to my old one. I love the sanding dust catcher. It holds much more then anticipated and I can go a long time without emptying it. And it is super simple to empty. It's always scary to replace a tool that has been your tried and true for many years, but in this case, I am 100% satisfied with it's replacement.

Besides the option we researched above, I would definitely evaluate the TACKLIFE PSFS1A and the 6369 by WEN. Both TACKLIFE and WEN are considered some of the premier manufacturers of high quality Sanders. both of these particular options earned great buyer ratings as well. Customers awarded the TACKLIFE an rating on average of 4.3/5 stars. Compare that to the 6369 which boasts an average score of 4.1/5 stars.

The PSFS1A by TACKLIFE provides a few really premium features such as ❤❤❤ Comes with 13pcs sanding belts, 7 x 80 grits, 6 x 120 grits.❤❤❤. The WEN 6369 by comparison, is tough to beat with Variable speed adjustment operates anywhere from 600 to 1500 RPM and even Hook-and-loop base pad makes changing sandpaper easier than ever.

I can easily suggest both of these Corded Sanders
