Can I use this sander to sand joint compound on drywall?

Can I use this sander to sand joint compound on drywall? I tried to drywall for the first time and thing I may have laid the joint compound a little too think and my should is getting tired :0
Asked by: Daniel
Most people would not. First, the "foot print" is way to small to get an even finish with drywall. Secondly, the amount of dust would be incredible! Third, drywall dust is very abrasive, and your new Makita air-cooled power tool will die quickly from this abuse you would be forcing it to inhale. But most importantly, this is simply the wrong tool. Could use use a formula one car to carry gravel home for your driveway? Sure, but although it might be fun, it will take a lot more trips than a 10-yard dump truck. Use a drywall sander on a pole, and you will get a better, more even finish, much, much faster, with a whole lot less dust. This is a must have tool for any shop, but not for this.

What sandpaper do you buy with this sander?

Asked by: eric
You can buy the full sheets and cut them into 1/4s, it's the most economical way to do it.

Will this sander fit into the supplied case? Or is the case designed for accessories only?

The supplied case looks a bit small in the ads. Does the sander/ dust collector itself fit into the case, or is the case designed for accessories only? Thanks!
Asked by: DIYguy
This case is wonderful, fits the sander, in a specific location, the dust bag sits right behind it, with plenty of room for a hundred pre-cut sheets on their side up in front. I wish more cases had extra room like this.

1/4 Sheet Finishing Sander with Tool Case is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 74.

Replaced a 25+ year old 1/4 sheet Makita, purchased new & used professionally. The time frame it served in the shop & on site speaks volumes of its quality. A few changes made to how paper is secured; jury is still out on that. The dust port is more compatible for use with adapters for Dust Control (vacuums). The sander is largely the same unit with some rubber added to the grip area (and strangely, about the same price as it was decades ago). A great addition to RO sanders.

The new one feels the same as old one. I use it for all my finish work. Does as good a job. I like the new style paper clamps. Much easier to use over the old one. Hope it lasts as long as old one.

I had one of the Milwaukee sanders which I preferred due to its power when it worked but there was a serious design flaw where the sand paper hold down bar would get worn away and no longer hold paper. This is a better design although a bit less powerful.

The Makita fits those requirements. It’s easy to use, the vibration is reasonable. It does a good job and fits my smaller hand pretty well.

Is a good finishing sander with one design caveat - this model is much more difficult to install the sandpaper than my older Makita model. It works but is clumsy and you need three hands.
