Eastwood 6 Inch Dual Action Air Palm Sander is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8373.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Item for the price. This sander is light, powerful and very smooth operating. I can not complain about anything for the short time I have used it (i hour). It is fairly low on vibration which makes it easy to navigate around the body lines of vehicle I am working on. I oiled it before adding air, it did not turn....just made a hissing sound. A little nudge got it going and it seemed fine from there on. It fits well and comfortably in my hand which should allow lots of use without fatigue. ControllingAfter I have used this sander for at least 10 hours I will update my review...to this point it looks very good and I would recommend this sander to others. the speed is also effortless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I am an autobody hobbyist and bought this sander due to the low cfm requirements. I am running it on a Husky 33 gallon, 1.5HP compressor at 90psi at the tank. My small compressor is able to keep up with continuous sanding. I haven't used it much so I can't comment on longevity of the sander but it seems to be well made for the price. There is a post below saying it is a 5 inch sander, which it isn't. It has a 5.5 inch pad, which is standard. I plan on buying the Concours paint gun as well due to low cfm requirements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very effective! i just received my sander yesterday and used it for the first time today. After borrowing my brothers ingersol rand da i was shocked when this Eastwood da actually performed better. as long as the performance continues i will be very happy using this for home auto restoration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool I have bought the expensive brands of palm sanders in the past and this one is just as well built. The weight feels like quality, very smooth operation. I was also impressed to get the better wedge shaped pad with it, most other sanders have the cheap flat pad and you have to buy the better pad for about $18.00. I plan to Eastwood-up my shop with more tools soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. In all fairness, I have yet to put this to work. I did check to see how it worked with my compressor. My compressor says that it will provide 3.8 CFM @90 PSI. Frankly I believe the manufacturer is exercising a slight amount of hyperbole there. Regardless, my compressor was not able to keep up with the first Dual Action Palm Sander I bought (not from Eastwood). I reluctantly returned it thinking that was that, as I was not inclined to buy another compressor. I came across this Sander and noticed the lesser volume of air it requires. So that, so far, is what I tested – it passed with flying colors. My only dislike is that if you lose the thin flat wrench that comes with it, you are not going to have an easy time of changing pads – so don’t lose it! I wish it had a smarter setup in that regard. But hey, for the price the value is terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome deal! Great product as is most of Eastwood Pulled it from the box, dropped a few squirts of air tool oil and started sanding. This tool does the trick, it never bogs down or stops, uses very little air to get the results you need. I own a DA sander but it is for a bigger compressor. This is a very nice tool for the price. All the others I looked at were at least twice the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for DIY I have had a great experience with this da sander. It uses only 2.8CFM @ 90PSI so using my 33 gallon air compressor powers this sander with ease. I purchased a second sander because I liked it so much and the price is awesome. I also have a few HFT da sanders. The eastwood in my opinion is a better sander not only does it use 4+ CFM less making it easier for my compressor to supply the air it needs the exhaust port is also metal compared to plastic.

Would I be able to buff and polish with this?

Asked by: Steve4827
As far as wetsanding with a fine grit sand paper yes. you will need a hook and loop pad and a soft interface pad for optimal results. but polishing must be done with buffer.
