    About Eastwood 6 Inch Dual Action Air Palm Sander

    Palm grip lets you work 1-handed (but it’s always best to use two hands, for better control). Adjustable speed control lets you match the speed to your application.

    We tested this best palm sander against the best, and its performance compared positively to a leading national brand, just like you'd expect from Eastwood. Final product imported.

    Don't be fooled by the low price. These sanders work as well as others costing 2 or 3 times the price. We use them for jitterbug finishing stainless steel parts in a metal fab shop and they're great. Wish there was an option for a 5" PSA pad as the smaller sizer is easier to get in tight spots but they're easy to change out and we stock them. We'll be ordering more!
    So far so good. (Posted on 11/4/13)

    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.
    very pleased (Posted on 9/22/13)

    It's about the cheapest(price wise) 6" palm style sander out there and it works great, A lot of DA sanders or too aggressive and hard to control but this one feels good in my hand and is easy to use.
    is a 5" sander not a 6" (Posted on 3/17/13)

    I like this sander. But it is labeled as a 6" but the one I got is a 5"sander. I bought 6" sanding disc's for it from Eastwood. Which are to big for the pad. Eastwood needs to fix the label for the sander. All in all it is a good sander. I can't wait to get to the body work on my Monte.

    Eastwood Note: We found a small batch that had the incorrect pad coupled with the sander. Please send us an email at: orderhelp@eastwood.com for the correct replacement pad if you had that problem.

    I expected a good product from Eastwood but I didn't expect this DA sander to be so light weight and so controllable. I bought it to remove some rather extensive runs and sags from the car I'm working on and it worked perfectly.
    Excellent tool (Posted on 3/13/12)

    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.
