    Q:Can it sand stuff like car painting? IT only says "Ideal for woodworkers and finish carpenters".

    Answer This Question

    A:  It isn't as aggressive as a pneumatic "DA" in my opinion but if you don't have the air to run a pneumatic one it would be better than nothing for doing a "shade tree" paint job I'm sure. It's basically the same thing. (I use it for woodwork stuff so I may not be your best resource)

                    Q:I can't keep the pads on it, how do I do that?

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  The appropriate pads will have a felt backing that sticks onto the bottom of the sander which should have a velcro style sticky side on the bottom of it.

                    by|May 17, 2022

                      A:  Thank you for your question on the BO5030K 5' random orbit sander. This tool uses quick-change 5" (8-hole) hook-and-loop abrasive paper. Be sure to keep the pad clean by using an air compressor after each use to clean it. If the papers still do not stick it might be time for a new pad. Part number 743081-8.

                        Great product
                        I had purchased this sander to do some work on my garage door due to it sticking. The tool did wonders and didn’t disappoint. The bag attachment never came off while using it. The cord is not that long, I would say about 4-5ft in range. Definitely would need an extension cord. Also the case it comes with is also a plus VS the cordless sander tool. I would recommend this tool for people that don’t want to break the bank.

                            Worked well… for a year.
                            Initially I really enjoyed using the sander. It worked smoothly and fulfilled all of my needs for refinishing furniture. Fast forward to today, one year from purchase, and it started acting funny. It would occasionally shut off and turn itself back on. I pulled the plug out to readjust it, and the plug was burnt. $70 purchase for one year isn’t a good investment. I will look at other brands from now on.

                              I bought the sander to refinish some furniture pieces I have and I was amazed how easy it is to use! The sanding pads go on and come off so easy! I would highly recommend using this product! I did my first piece in less than 2 hours! I attached before and after photos!

                              You can not go wrong with this Palm Sander as it well worth paying just a little bit more for and the quality is much better than other brands I've purchased in the past. A little over a year and half ago my husband and I started restoring furniture for additional income and we already had our first Makita orbital sander but it at that point hadn't had much use. Fast forward about 4 months later and we basically ran the poor thing into the ground due to how much use we put it through and needed to purchase a new one. I was able to purchase our second one on Sale at Home Depot for a fantastic price and we now have been using the 2nd one for a year now, located a company that sells the replacement pads and learned how to extend the life of our sander with regular maintenance. My daughter was wanting a new dresser for her room since she's getting older and part of the deal was she had to participate in the restoration of it so pictured is my husband and daughter and he is teaching her how to safely use a sander with a mask on since he did not have the dust catcher on it. All we use now is Makita hand tools for all our restoration builds!

                                Love makita tools, especially the hard case the tool comes in. Have never gotten a defective item YET! Probably just jinxed myself.
