          Great sander
          Bought this random orbital sander for a job I did refinishing cabinetry in a laundry. Worked great to sand surface and prep it for paint. Would buy this product again!

              Did The Job
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this sander to aid in the sanding of my deck before I stained it. This did the job and it did it well. It really brightened up the old wood on the deck. I would highly recommend this sander. If it can sand my entire deck then it can stand up to a great deal of projects. The photos highlight the difference in how the wood looked halfway through sanding. And the other picture is of the stained deck. There's a couple spots left to touch up, but overall I am pleased with this project and the sander really helped.

                Feel like a pro!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After years of renting hand sanders for small jobs, I decided to get my own. I wasn't sure what to get. A professional contractor suggested the Ryobi corded hand sander as the best option for my purposes. With everything I needed in the box, including the easy-to-attach Velcro sanding discs, I used it right away to sand and refinish a butcher block table. It came out beautifully. I feel like a pro.

                    Hex screws vibrate loose.
                    I used this product on 3 small sanding projects. During first use screws burned through pad. I ordered a second pad and once again the hex screws vibrated loose and burned through the pad. Horrible product, do not buy. And I have and love Ryobi tools.

                      Fantastic Sandpaper
                      I love using good sandpaper on my orbital sander when I am sanding rough lumber and this ryobi sandpaper is no joke. It’s amazing! This 5 inch sandpaper comes in 3 different grits 220, 120, and 80. It has very good Velcro on the back with perfectly sized holes for catching sawdust in many different brands of sanders. As you can see in the pictures it is good quality and I’m happy with the product.

                      Does not fit standard 1-1/4" vacuum hoses
                      I bought this a few days ago thinking that I could connect it to my shop vacuum through a 2-1/2" to 1-1/4" hose adapter. (See page 8 of the Operators Manual). I discovered that the adapter or any of our vacuum hoses will not work because the hole for the hose is 1-1/8" in diameter. Forcing a 1-1/4" fitting in would break the plastic housing. I was however able to make it work by inserting part of a 4" section of 3/4" ID PVC pipe into the adapter and wrapping the other end with some friction tape and inserting that into the sander. The 3/4" pipe section restricts the air flow when compared to the 1-1/4" I was hoping for but the dust collection is still good enough. Other than that, it is working OK for me.

                        Fast cutting, smooth finish, no loading.
                        I’ve been buying more Ryobi items lately, not a lot; but a few here and there depending on circumstances. I wasn’t pleased really with the brand of sandpaper I was using for the last 7-8 years, so I figured why not try this Ryobi paper and see how it holds up. Inside the package was 3x 80 grit, 2x 120 grit, and 2x 220 grit. The first thing I noticed was that all the dust/exhaust holes in the paper lined up perfectly with the base pad and all of the dust/exhaust holes on my 5” Skil orbital sander. The old brand I used was always out of round and the holes never lined up right which created thick dust clouds. My old brand would also spontaneously tear away from the Velcro backing, usually on a brand new piece if the base pad was hot from friction, and then never stick to the sander again. To test the paper I ran a piece of 80 grit on an 1’ by 8’ strip of OSB that I’m going to use as a temporary substrate while I’m bending pre-painted rolled aluminum wrapping. I only sanded it to ensure I didn’t mar up the painted finish as I’m trying to work it. After about 30 minutes of sanding it was fairly smooth and the paper was still cutting nicely. There was little to no loading on the paper. Any dust was easily brushed away. Most of the dust was being sucked into the cartridge filter on the sander as well, which dramatically improved the air quality compared to the old brand I used. I then swapped out the 80 grit for a piece of 120 grit next to sand up some 1” x 3” wood that I’d ripped in half on the table saw. This was going to be put up as casing on a front door I’d just installed. The 120 grit made quick work of the pine and was smooth enough for my needs within about 5 minutes. There was a bit more loading on the 120 grit compared to the 80 grit, but a soft brush took care of it easily. The biggest gains I noticed over the brand I used previously were: 1. The paper seems not load up or burn the dust into the paper. It continues to cut well even after long periods of use. 2. The glued backing doesn’t separate from the paper backing when the sander heats up from friction. 3. The exhaust holes for wood dust are perfectly positioned, for my sander anyway, which significantly reduced the saturation of wood particles in the air, thereby improving air quality. I plan on sticking with this paper for the foreseeable future; I’d only be taking steps backwards if I didn’t.
