The glue that held them up was impossible to sand off by hand. It's sturdily built, easy to handle and light weight. Tool should last a lifetime with routine care and maintenance. It could just be that some bolts are lose, but I'm not sure. The sander worked flawlessly going through a lot of material.

PORTER-CABLE 362V Final Thoughts
"It was one of my favorite tools."
I'd certainly recommend this powerful and well priced sander. I can't believe how well it works for the price too. All the others died completely after about a floor and a half. I use it a lot for flattening hardwood panels after glue up. I used it for the better part of 2 hours with no issues.
