Have used this sander for many years at a previous job. Worked great, so I wanted one of my own.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpiderMan Best sander ever made
I have 2 Mod. 330 sanders. One is 41 years old.. And I have just ordered a new on/off switch for same, the first part it has ever needed.. The other is about 35 years old, no parts needed yet. I am a professional boat builder and I also do a lot of car body work. These have been my only pad sanders for the last 30 boats or so. The first time I used a 330 was as a young boat builder starting in 1968. They were the best then and remain so today. I hope they keep making them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpecTech Great sander
I have several other sanders, belt, 1/2 sheet and a larger five inch orbital. This sander fits the needs for better one-handed finish sanding.
The directions are quite correct, do not use downward force to use the sander. It works very nicely and maneuvers easily with just the weight of the unit. It just needs to be guided.
It doesn't have dust collection, so be prepared for clean-ups.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frog Best, Most reliable 1/4 sheet block sander on the market
I bought the exact same sander with the Rockwell name so long ago I can't remember the exact year, but it must have been at least 30 -35 years ago. It has never been apart and has never failed. Although it's a finishing sander, I've used it with coarse paper to do rough sanding and finished it with fine grit paper. It has been absolutely bullet proof. I'm glad to see this "son of Rockwell" is still on the market.

My old sander was a Rockwell that was identical to this one.
It lasted 25 years! This baby is a pleasure to maneuver and
makes ALL sanding easy! Porter Cable is a great brand and
Home Deport got it to me quickly! Extremely pleased!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldHouseOldMan Excellent sander
I have owned two of these for 25+ years and they have hundreds of hours on each of them. The only maintenance required thus far is to replace the pads. This sander is very comfortable and easy to use. Produces excellent results. I own several Porter Cable products and none has never disappointed me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peckerwood They don't get any better!
I too have had one of these for about 20 years. You can sand with it for hours without your fingers getting numb because of vibration. Most sanders will have you needing to stop for a break after just a few minutes. This one is quiet, has very little vibration, and really makes the dust fly! If you buy it you'll be happy you did.
