Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sander for the price!!! This is a great sander for the money you pay. I have had it about a month now and have used it quite a few times. It has plenty of power as some of the cheaper sander lack. Of course it's not as nice as you too name brands. But overall for the price and performance I'd keep on buying.

IF have a lower cfm than required at 90 psi will it damage this tool ?

Asked by: alexpena
If you try to use a lower CFM output compressor the tool simply won't run. The lower volume of air won't be able to spin the motor.

Hello. Why not mount a hook-n-loop pad for easy mounting of sand paper and buffer polishing pads ???

Asked by: Detailr
PSA paper is still one of the most readily available sand paper for the DIY enthusiast. We do also have an accessory hook and loop backing pad if that is a preference. https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-6-in-h-l-backing-pad.html

I'm just curious is this design for wet sanding and buffing? If not what exactly is this design for. Thank you very much owner of Dead End Auto Body St Charles Missouri

Asked by: Chad
This palm sander is perfect to use to remove paint, prep for filler, feather edge paint, prep old paint for a blend when using an interface pad, or even wet sanding clear to prep for buffing. This tool itself will not be used for the buffing work though.
