"Great little sander, fun to use, dust collector works ok."
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.

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!
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 lov...

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 ...
