      Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless Detail Sander:

      My favorite thing about this sander is the price. For the cost of a couple of lunches, it gives the owner the ability to do all those little, around-the-house fix-it sanding jobs that you would normally put off. But with this tool, you won't shy away from pulling it out because you won't be annoyed at all the hassle of cords and noise. It's relatively quiet and the battery is the same as your other Porter Cable 18v NICAD batteries, so you don't have to buy a new one if you already have any of their other stuff. It can be a little unruly, so I wouldn't recommend it for your truly fine detailing, but it's great for everyday uses.
