Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DanBarnacle Shockingly Good Sander for the Price!
I love this sander! I've been using it to sand 2x4x6" blocks for a new business venture and I'm continually amazed at how well it's working! I've sanded over 200 blocks and the thing just keeps going ... it works surprisingly well and I would highly recommend it for the price. If you just need a sander around the house or have a couple big projects to finish up, this hand sander is well worth the price!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Palladino Great little sander that gets the job done!
Easy to use. Compact and not too heavy. I used it to sand down dried primer paint runs. Easy to load, worked great and an excellent price point, too!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BetsyAnn Good tool, but with design flaw
I've had to replace the pad twice in one year... the pad holds the clips in place and they hold the sandpaper onto the pad. The machine vibrates those plastic tabs right off of the metal clips. I am not kidding. The first time it happened, I was sanding a flat surface, like a table top, and all of the sudden a plastic tab goes flying off. I used needle nose pliars to release the metal clips to replace the sandpaper until I could get a new pad ordered. I am getting ready to order yet another pad... because this time, both plastic tabs have vibrated off. By now, I could have just bought another machine. Otherwise, the size and weight are GREAT, and it works very well.

The Skil sander I purchased is reconditioned and it works as new. There is a bit of a trick to getting the dust catcher cleaned out well, but once you have that figured out your good to go. I don't think anyone can beat the price which makes this sander a VERY GOOD VALUE.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gmia The filter is great
I bought because of the price and I really wanted it to work,it started with
the hold down brackets that were thin and on one side it bent,and with time
(one month) the brackets didn't hold the sandpaper.
The sander, in the beginning, was not loud and did not vibrate but after (3 weeks)
it got louder and started to vibrate.
So I returned it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Josie Not very functional
The sand paper is difficult to insert and keeps slipping out, or the sand paper is ripping because you have to bend it over the edges to get it under the clamps. The whole design with the wire/clamps is just not working well. I wish I would have paid a little more and get a better sander.

I bought this sander a short time ago for sanding jobs around the house and the tiny arm on the side of the pad broke. My gf bought one almost a year ago same happened to hers as well other then that great sander.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boatman Great Sander for the Price !
I bought one two years ago and have used the bjeebers out of it building and reconditioning boats. Don't expect it to do work meant for a belt sander and keep it clean and it will last.
