Rated 5 out of 5Â by feralchild powerful little sander
I've had other 'palm sander's in the past, like the mouse sander and I didn't rate it. This however is another kettle of fish. It is solidly built, as most Makita tools are, and is comfortable to use. The dust bag works well and it does the job perfectly for its size. One of the bonuses is that you can use your own sandpaper and don't have to mess about with Velcro pads etc.
I used this on Oak and for those who haven't sanded oak before, it's a bit like stone, and this little sander performed brilliantly and left a super smooth finish, Pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Creigiau I love this sander!
I bought this sander when my old Black and Decker decided to die on me in the middle of a job. Every review I have read has praised this Makita Palm 1/4 plate sander and all I can do is reiterate their comments. The major plus is the ability to use roll paper, I use Norton Oakey rolls and they have been brilliant in my experience.

I use these sanders in my day to day work as a Painter/Decorator and they provide everything a larger and "Professional" sander claims.
This product is quieter and able to sand in smaller spaces than most others and reliability has been very good, I'm hoping this one's quality is as good.
The only fault has been with an older model which had started to cut out whilst in use, but that is it in 5 solid years of hard use.
I like these sanders and have proved it by buying another for work.

Small in size but huge performance. Easy to fit sheet paper ( money saving). Very little vibration when being used. Heavy for it's size. Does a good gob of collecting dust in the cloth bag. Excellent finish on bare wood. Just buy it!
