Comments about 3 in. x 21 in. Variable-Speed Sander with Dust Bag:

I build bunkbeds so I'm sanding almost everyday for
2 1/2 hours with this sander. No problems yet as it's holding up well. Eventually will have to move up to a drum sander. Dust control is a real problem without a sanding table.

    Comments about 3 in. x 21 in. Variable-Speed Sander with Dust Bag:

    This is THE sander for making wood into dust. It is not a finish sander. It is best used on flat surfaces, vertical or horizontal, when you want to remove lots of wood fast. It will "finish" sand with a 120 grit belt, but it is not a random orbit sander.

        I had a single speed 352 for 25 years that finally gave up the ghost. I can only hope this one is half as good. The variable speed option is something else to break sooner than later. The reconditioned price was good.

        New Vs. Reconditioned

        Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

        • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
        • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
        • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
          New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
