Questions & Answers

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.

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.

2 Amp Corded 1/4 Sheet Finishing Sander with 60G Paper, 100G Paper, 150G Paper, Dust Bag, Punch Plate, Hard Case is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an older version of the same Makita sander that I'm passing on to my dau... I bought this to replace an older version of the same Makita sander that I'm passing on to my daughter. Here's how the new one compares to the older model. PROS: the new one has a slightly more powerful motor, it has a round port to the dust bag instead of oval - this allows connection to a shop-vac, it comes with a "free" hard case that protects well, and it seems slightly smoother (less vibration) than the old sander. CONS: It's a bit heavier and slightly larger than the old model, the hard case is far larger than it needs to be and has surprisingly little storage space for its ample dimensions. The old sander and extra paper still fit perfectly in the (much smaller) cardboard box they originally came in. Still, this new finish sander has the look and feel of excellent quality, it runs very smoothly and has several convenient features like the improved dust bag and easy clamps for the paper - all for a modest price. Hopefully, it will hold up as well as the old one. TIPS: 1) This is a FINISH sander. It is the right tool for getting a super smooth finish to flat woodwork that is already fairly even. Use some other kind of sander (orbital, belt, etc.) for removing tons of rough material. 2) "1/4 sheet" sanders like this are very economical to use because you can get 4 work pieces from one regular sized sheet of sandpaper. Just fold in quarters and cut with scissors.

This sander worked fine out of the box with quiet operation, it didn't vibrate so much as to numb my hands and seemed best for finishing sanding though it did have slow paper changing. After a days of use it steadily grew louder and within a few days was screaming so loud I had to wear hearing protection, then the foam pad started collapsing causing the plate screws to scratch the wood through the sandpaper. Within about a week it started making some weird rattling and squeaking noises. I took it back.

I have run the sander for approximately six hours so far and am very glad I stuck with a Makita. The newer design makes changing paper a breeze also. You can't go wrong with this one. My neighbor recently bought a different name brand and says he wishes he had listened to me when I suggested he try the Makita.

Don't understand why they allow this to happen, but I am happy I got the case for easy transport. The sander is excellent, seems to cause less fatigue in my hands than other sanders. Variable speed is also a great bonus. Makita rocks.

Since I had such a good track record with it I decided to replace it with another Makita. I'm very disappointed with this one. Doesn't have the same quality as the old one.
