Hook and loop pad doesn't hold sandpaper discs.
This tool was a let down. After using it for just a handful of projects, the hook and loop pad was nonfunctional, not holding brand new sandpaper discs in place. Even when the pad was perfectly clean, the sandpaper discs went flying off. Pretty bummed about this purchase.

This sander really did a nice job on my cedar porch that was brutally power washed by a contractor that did not know what he was doing! I had to do allot of sanding to smooth out my floor boards. This little sander saved a life! :-)

Once again I must say that Skil delivers great quality and value at a price that is easily accessible to anyone.
Consistently, it seems to me that many far more expensive tools do not perform significantly better than the equivalent Skil tool. I so far own two of them and plan to buy more in the future.

Hey folks as an amateur wood worker I would heartily recommend this tool. I enjoy building different arts and crafts and had acquired some extremely rough cedar planks. This tool enabled me to sand these planks to a finish that was extremely professional looking and in turn I was able to build some beautiful cedar jewelery boxes for my wife and daughters. Thank you Harold

This was my first sander and was quite pleased with its functionality. I especially like the pressure meter being a novice sabder.

GREAT sanding dust control
Bought this for my wife. She does a lot of sanding on the woodwork we are redoing. Have had two other sanders that worked okay, but, dust everywhere. Almost no dust with this unit. It sands well and REALLY holds onto the dust. It will pack so much dust into the filter housing that you have to work to get it out, nice problem to have.

I bought this to use while making picture frames. It has proven to be easy to use on small areas and in multiple positions with one hand. Since I work in a small area in the garage, the dust filter is a must. Plus, the cost/benefit ratio is excellent.

I would say that this is an average sander. The disc makes it hard to get in corners, so do not expect to use it inside of preexisting projects. When a disc is on the sander, there is an indention in the middle of the platform that typically does not see any sanding use resulting in a small portion of the sand paper that is not used. Other than that, it does quality work so long as you have the right sand paper for the job.
