Customer reviewsFinish Sanders
I do a lot of antique refinishing, and abusive of the various finish sanders that I use. I have tried every brand that sells for under 85., and this sander is the best of the bunch. It has a very high revolution rate, which is actually a side to side motion, not a full circle revolution as is the disk style. The disk sanders are terrible for finish sanders, because they scratch the wood against the grain and do NOT result in a that is suitable for refinishing. This sander has a good dust collection system, utilizing a smaller collection bag that allows the sander to reach more difficult areas. This sander also has the best retention system for the sandpaper and it is easier to load, both features that will quickly learn to appreciate. I am now on my third sander, which is fine because they are cheap and I really abuse them. They have performed better and outlasted every other sander I have tried. I highly recommend this Porter Cable model.
