Customer Questions & Answers

does this unit accept regular "torn in quarters" paper or do you have to buy special 1/4 sheet sandpaper?

Asked by: BlueSkyMan
You can use 9 x11 sheets of paper and tear them to size.

What sandpaper do you buy with this sander?

Asked by: eric
You can buy the pre-cut 1/4 sheets from most retailers. They are cut short in my opinion, making it annoying to attach to the sander. I wish the sandpaper manufacturers would add a little more length to the paper.

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.

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 94.

I first used this little jewel to remove finishes from some shelves, and then to sand down the shelves so that stain and sealer could be applied. I had a lot of surface area to cover, but the Makita just kept on keeping on! Being able to use the front flange of the dust collection bag to hook on to a shop vacuum helped me keep the dust down and resulted in less cleanup. This sander is powerful but easy to handle - great for heavy work in small areas and outstanding to use for finish sanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right tool for the job When the Makita sander I had used for over a decade finally bit the dust literally for the last time I went back to HD for a replacement. Purveying the selection I was trying to decide which sander to purchase. The store employee Tom spied me looking perplexed and inquired if he could assist. After determining my needs based on the projects I have planned he recommended this particular sander which has worked out better than expected. No complaints so far and I find it to be a good value for the money.

Operation is smooth, lot less vibration. Quality, durable feel overall - though the dust bag is a bit fiddly, prefer something solid.

The finishing sander does a great job, is light enough for delicate work yet heavy enough to help reduce vibration. My only complaint would be that I did not receive the "handy tool case" which would make for storage much better than sitting on the bench with the cord wrapped around it.

Bought it for a gift for my son but I have had one for myself for some time. I have had a few other brand palm sanders but I like this one best as it is easier to load the paper and it comes with a case. Another plus is the size of the hand grip is not too big for the "Do it HERSELF crafter" .

Pro's: This is a low vibration 1/4 sheet sander that is easy on your hand and wrist. It delivers great performance. Con's: Hard to find an adapter to hook up to vacuum system. Dust collection using enclosed bag is only 60% efficient.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dangerous failure While using this sander after maybe 3-4 hrs over two days time. The sanding pad broke and came off with a lot of force and energy. Did not hit anybody thank goodness.
