Product Overview

The DEWALT DWE6411K 1/4 Sheet sander combines many end-user driven features and benefits. We have reduced the overall height of the unit, while keeping a powerful motor. We have also been able to reduce the vibration and wobble for improved comfort when sanding. The new paper clamp system was created after feedback and frustration that users had with the current wire form system. The new system works with a front button and a paper tension system with the back paper clamps.
  • 2.3 Amp motor sands at 14,000 OPM
  • Rubber over mold texture will provide a smooth and comfortable control while sanding
  • Improved paper clamp features for better paper retention
  • Locking dust-port system that allows the user to lock vacuum hose up with the sander
  • Reduced overall height of the sander to get the user closer to their work
  • Foam pad for flatter sanding plane
  • Separate counterweight for reduced vibration
  • Rubber dust boot over the switch to protect against dust ingestion for longer switch life

What kind of sand paper do I use?

Answers

1/4 of a whole sheet.

Does it use more than 1/4 sheet paper?

Asked by tc June 9, 2020
5
Answers

Not sure which reviews your talking about. My major worry was that it would not hold the1/4 sheets of sand paper securely. That was a major complaint about other sanders. This Dewalt uses a very slick spring-like lever that holds the paper VERY securely. I used it with multiple sheets of progressively more fine paper with ABSOLUTELY NO SLIPPAGE. The paper never tore, and I only needed to replace the sheets once the abrasive wore down. Changing the paper took 30 seconds. Perhaps 40 seconds if you use the included punch that makes holes in the paper to allow the vacuum bag to work more efficiently. (that's the square piece of plastic in the picture with the raised bumps.) Hope that helps.

Can I use a sticky pad n this sander

Asked by Boobie May 26, 2020

No, it is not designed for sticky pads. It is for cut sheets of sandpaper.

What sized sand paper do i use with this sander?

Asked by Melanie May 23, 2020

Use the 4.5" x 5.5" quarter sheet. You need the extra inch to pin the sandpaper under the clamping mechanism

Cheap plastic for holding the spring clip
The spring clip is held in by a weak piece of plastic. It just snapped off while running the unit! Part isn't available. Really disappointed when I can't get a part for a sander I just bought two months ago. The DeWalt web site refers you to a 3rd party site for parts. That site says the part is unavailable. The unit is still under warranty but the service center is way across town. Guess I'll head over to Home Depot and buy another one to finish this job, probably try another brand! I thought the design to hold the paper in place was a good design, but in retrospect it's only a cheap molded piece of plastic that can't handle any stress. It's probably the reason you can't buy the part online, sold out? At $55 for a new one it's not worth my time to drive across town to the service center. I don't want to think DeWalt sanders are disposable, but this one might be headed to the trash can!

Works very nicely. I like the added feature of perforating the sand paper so that the sanding dust is vacuumed away from the surface being sanded. The weight of this sander is perfect to keep the proper pressure on the surface being sanded. This is an orbital sander and is the first sander of this type that I have owned now for a month. I am refinishing a six drawer dresser and it meets all of my expectations.

nice unit that fits your hand nicely and does a great job. Like the fact that you can use a number of options for sand paper, cut your own or purchase precut paper. Using the sander to do finish work on bread boards that I make in my shop so I use multiple grades a paper. It is easier to change paper on this unit over others I have had.

Smooth operation, mediocre dust collection
I have two of these sanders and another 1/4" sheet sander from another manufacturer. I'm a woodworker and do a lot of sanding. I keep all three loaded with different sandpaper grits to speed up the sanding process (and save on sandpaper). Typically, I use my sander to clean up the marks left by a drum sander or planer. With quality sandpaper, the task is quick and easy. The DeWalt has a nice solid feel with minimal vibration and good control, even when sanding edges, corners and oddly shaped items. The clamps are excellent: they are easy to load, hold the paper securely and keep it taut for the life of the sheet. Dust collection is another story, though. I rarely have to empty the dust bag on these, and I've noticed that they both eject a lot of dust-laden air out the side of the sander during operation (the dust cloud being especially bad at start up). Not only do they load up the air with dust, dust on the bench is blown around as well.
by Sseebart
It makes a mess
Was easy to assemble and set up. Read and followed directions for utilizing the bag attachment. It literally blew the dust everywhere. I could feel jets of air blowing out of the head of the sander. If I had to guess, 20-25% of the dust made it into the bag. The picture was taken 30 feet from where I sanded.
