  • Eastwood 6 inch Dual Action Air Palm Sander
Eastwood 6 inch Dual Action Air Palm Sander is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 67.
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 3 out of 5 by from the pad failed I bought this as a backup in case my 30 yr old D/A quit. I decided to try it for the first time. I had about a 1/2 an hour of actual use time on the sander. it fells nice in my hand, has good power and speed, adjustable air/speed valve included I was using the sander on the flat surface of the trunk of a crown vic, I had 120 grit on when the pad came apart from the attaching bolt. the bolt has a 1/2" inch square flat head that goes into a 1/4" round hole on pad back. the pad has a small crack at that point,it appears to have just spun out. I put a spare backing pad on and continued to use it without further trouble. approx. 2 hours of use time other then the pad issue I would tell a friend the unit is ok

Would I be able to buff and polish with this?

Asked by: Steve4827
Yes. I just used mine for the first time to wax and buff our car. I used a hook and loop pad, a foam wax pad to apply the wax and some buffing pads to remove the wax. It turned out great. Just make sure you have a compressor that is at least 30 gal.

My compressor is only rated at 2.4 cfm @ 90psi.  No go on this sander?

Asked by: Esilassy
I have a Makita compressor and it is rated at 6 cfm and 140 psi. It will not work or I got a bad sander.
