Return
Within 5 minutes of use the front-end (nose) of the mouse started to deform and the supplied paper separated, gummed up and the hook and loop closure became unusable. Not a happy camper, time to revisit the local store

Proper tool for the proper job
The corded Black and Decker 1.2 amp (DETAIL) sander has been a great addition to my essential wood working tools. I did read the previous reviews on the product and decided to purchase it and try it out myself, I was refinishing the steps inside my home and I needed a compact, lightweight sander that had a finger attachment which could sand between the spindles of the steps. The mouse sander worked better than I could have had imagined, The 1.2 amp motor was powerful enough to do between the stair spindles and also the steps (I was using a bigger sander for the step area but found that the mouse sander done a better job and was easier to control). The finger attachment is removable all you need is a #2 Phillip screwdriver to remove it, the sander comes with hook and loop sand paper, unfortunately the replacement brand sand paper that Home Depot sells (Diablo) does fit the sander but the holes do not line up, (you can purchase the exact fit sand paper through black and Decker at AMAZON, I have listed the part numbers below). The sander comes with 2 sanding sheets, 1 finger sanding sheet and a finger attachment holder which is attached to the cord, the see through, micro filtration dust collector works well and very easy to open and dispose of dust, additional benefits is that it has a 2 year limited warranty, you can also order polishing sheets and it has a three position grip control. I would highly recommend the mouse detail sander to anyone interested in purchasing it and the price is very reasonable. (In regards to the previous reviews it is important to use hook and loop sand paper with this unit any other sand paper will just slide off and until HOME DEPOT stocks the exact fit sand paper order your replacement sanding sheets through Black and decker at AMAZON) (I take time to do product reviews after every major purchase, help keep me doing them by rating my review) hope this review was helpful. AMAZON - BDAMX = 12 PACK ASSORTMENT - BDAM120C = 12 PACK 120 GRIT - BDAM080C = 12 PACK 80 GRIT - BDAM050C = 12 PACK 50 GRIT - BDAM220C = 12 PACK 220 GRIT - BDAM180C = 5 PACK 180 GRIT HOME DEPOT (ON LINE ORDER ONLY) - 74-580 = SANDING AND POLISHING KIT Tip: I do a lot of wood working and I found out that when the holes on your sand paper do not line up you can add additional holes to the sand paper by buying a one hole paper punch from the dollar store and then using the old sheet as a template for the new holes.

The Black and Decker, were Christmas Gift. I'm not sure if the two people I bought them for have used them yet. One person is a Pastor and the other is a RN Nurse. I know they are both business right now. I'm going to give you a 5 star, because I have a Black and Decker, I purchased for myself 3 months ago, and it is still going pretty good, that's why I purchased it for the other two people, because I liked it. It is very easy to operate.
