Sander is working just fine and it is very convenient to use custom sheets. It is a bit more noisy than expected. One 4Ah battery is enough for many-many square feet.
I liked it however the person I purchased it for is handicapped and his hands don't work well sometimes. The off on button and the clips to put on the sandpaper were a bit hard to operate for a non handicapped person so they were extremely difficult for a person with disabilities. I am sure it wo...
Great for small job without cord getting in your way. It little hard to get use to.

Every worthwhile project deserves the privilege of purchasing a new tool to accomplish the task at hand. In this case, I have an old desk chair that needed repair and refinishing. The sander works great, the 1/4 sandpaper sheets are easy to clamp on to the base, and a "hole punch" tool is included with a few starter sheets of sandpaper. The punch allows one to use ordinary un-punched self-cut 1/4 -sheet sandpaper with the attached collection bag to suck up some of the dust.
The tools is compact, well-balanced and easy to control. The on-off switch is a little stiff to use, but it's not a show-stopper.

It's a 5-minute task, tops.
