Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cody Sanded my 28 cabinets and 14 drawers with this one sander
This sander is all around great. I completely refinished all my kitchen cabinets, door, and drawers with this one sander by itself. I then, rebuilt my stairs and handrail with red oak, and sanded all of it with just this one sander. It works really well, even compared to my more powerful orbital sanders. It is very light, compared to most sanders, but heavy enough that it doesn't bounce around easily like other light corner sanders, and it is built with excellent gripping ability which is a big problem with most corner sanders as the grip area is too small usually to get a good hold on the sander which results in your hand cramping really bad really fast when using most corner sanders. I did not have that problem at all with this sander, it is perfect to hold and handle, and did everything i needed it too. I would definitely recommend this sander, even over more expensive ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by odonna Distressed, silver-leafed grandmother's chest and finish paper mosaic art piece.
The Corner Cat finish sander fits really well in my hand and has minimum vibration. It was exactly what I needed to get into the corners and grooves of the old chest so I could distress it and apply silver-leaf to the drawers. The final project is so beautiful! I use the sander for other art projects as well. After I apply liquid glass to my functional art (paper mosaic) I use the sander to remove the harden drips along the bottom of the piece. It is so easy to maneuver and hold and works very fast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RandiC probaly the most effective tool I have ever bought
From my first use I was stunned at how much better this was than any sander I had ever used. I'm buying them for my kids now. I know it sounds like hyperbole. I can't think of think I would change. It would be the first sander I would get as a starter.
I refinished this 1800s table, scratched and stained with ink with this sander.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kelleyscuties Love this sander...small but mighty!
I really love this sander! I purchased it to sand down the cabinets in my kitchen. They had a lacquer and brown stain on them. No problem at all using this sander! I'm a 62 year women, and not that strong. I appreciated that this little sander does all the work for you...you just hold on and keep in small circular motion. Easy on the hands. It really does the job, removed the lacquer and stain down to the bare wood. Next I'm going to sand down my outdoor furniture and re stain them.
I had previously owned a square sander with the metal grips you flip up and put the sandpaper in. The paper always came off when I sanded.
I love it when I buy something at a great price and it does just what it says it will do! Also love the fact it comes with it's own bag to keep the sander and accessories in! It came with lots of extras!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NFCTinken Decent detail sander, but don't expect much from dust bag
I purchased this sander to help me get in tight locations where my 5" orbitial cannot. Most of the projects have dealt with window trim and I have been very happy with this product and its performance. I also like the way it fits in my hand, so it's comfortable to use in either your left or right hand.
The dust bag, like many sanders really does not pick anything up and it often leads to a mess. My solution is to connect the sander up directly to my Ridgid shopvac and I don't have any issues with dust anymore. I have the Ridgid tool adapter, which allows you to replace the bag with it and then connect to your shopvac.
Overall the sander has held up well in the past few months with regular use and I hope it continues to do so.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jessica Great value! I definitely recommend!
I originally bought this sander as a gift for my mom who was constantly borrowing my sander. I had a Skil sander, but because this was a finish sander, I thought it would better suit my mom's needs (refinishing furniture). However, after she used it a few times, she told me it made my sander seem like a piece of junk. She's right. After I gave hers a try, I bought myself one immediately. I've used it to sand raw wood, finishes off of furniture, and rust off of metal. It's great. I haven't used my old sander once since I got this one. Definitely a great value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RyanneJeremy Excellent buy for a limited budget!
I was a little hesitant when I saw the price, but I did a little bit of research and was very happy with my Corner Cat! I didn't want to spend a fortune on a sander, but I didn't want something CHEAP. Excellent buy for under $50. I've always had good luck with Ryobi products.
Very easy to use, and very effective for the random around the house refinishing projects I have going on. I specifically chose the Corner Cat, because the shape is fantastic for getting into oddly shaped areas and around curves, which is a frequent need when I'm working on older pieces of furniture.
I was a little concerned at first, when I saw the sandpaper pads velcro'ed onto the tool. No worries there either. Did not slip or come off while working. Very easy to change out as well.
Comes with a case to keep everything in, and also has a dust bag. Most reviewers have said that the dust bag on most sanders is marginally helpful. I would say I agree with that as well. My Corner Cat caught some of the dust, but there was still quite a bit that ended up on the floor and on me. It was reasonably helpful, but I also went in with the expectation that it probably wasn't going to suck up every single piece of dust. lol.
Overall very lightweight, and very user friendly. I specifically wanted to avoid buying a heavy duty piece, but still needed something that gets the job done. This was exactly what I was looking for!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amber Worked great till it melted.
Bought this last summer used to make 4 deck chairs. After the 4th chair, the paper would not stay on. Seems the heat from the vibration melted the hooks and the thing that holds it on is no longer available as a replacement part. So now its buy a new one time. Did like it, would try a different brand next time.
