Love the 3” pad, handles detail work and good power but it could be smaller
I bought this because it’s the only orbital sander I could find that was smaller than 5”. It’s a good sander, I use it on very hard, dense exotic woods and it handles that pretty well. I couldn’t give it a 5 Star because it’s pretty darn big for a 3” orbital. You aren’t going to be palming this one, although it can be used with one hand.
Nice, handles tough sanding jobs well and it would be perfect if it were smaller. Apparently I will have to go to pneumatic sanders if I want a 3” one I can palm.

Good tool after I got a working unit.
I purchased this tool to prep a boat for repainting. Use the foam intermediate pad if you are sanding a convex or concave surface. I use the tool attached to a vacuum for dust collection. Used it without the hose attached to fit in some tight spots and the intermediate pad started to melt and deform.The aperture for dust could be bigger.

Great Power Tool!
I bought this sander to get in tight places, and it works perfectly. It's powerful and easy to handle. The random orbiting motion defnitely works better that my finishing sander that moves in a side to side fashion. Works great if you connect to a dust collection system (vacuum), but there is no cannister attachment for those times when you are not near a vacuum. That's the only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars.

Stops After 15 Minutes of Use!
I have one of these sanders. They are good for tight work. But this sander stops working after 15-20 minutes of on-off work. I have the let the tool sit for an hour or so and mysteriously, it runs again for another 15-20 minutes. Also, the velco on the Matebo brand disks does not hold tight. I have a couple of packages that I have to go through several before getting one to actuall stick while using the tool. I wish there was competition in this size sander other than air operated. I would not buy this tool again.

nice tool
Good tool for irregular surfaces such as the sculpted rocker I was building when I bought it. The body of the sander is rather large to use as the 'handle' and the speed, even at the highest level is not very high. Nevertheless it does nice random strokes and does a good job of collecting dust if attached to a vac.

Works great, hard to hold
I am glad someone recommended this high quality compact random orbital sander. I use it for finish sanding woodturned projects, mainly bowls. It works great! None of the rotary sanding marks left by a power drill with a sanding pad. My only dislike is that the tool grip is a bit large for my average size hand. A small complaint compared to the usefulness of this fine tool.

Worked for About 2 Hours!
I purchased this sander from CPO in August 2014 to sand the bronze prop on my boat in preparation for painting with anti-fouling. It sat in my basement until this week. I got through 2 sheets of 80 grit sandpaper with the tool working just fine. Then it would not turn on. Now, at my expense I have to send it to Matebo for repair and find another sander to complete the prep on the prop. Not happy!

Excellent for tight spaces!
We use this tool to restore dull headlights and to buff small scratches on cars in our auto detailing business. It's great for tight spaces, like near door handles and mirrors. Saves us a lot of work and time by being able to pinpoint a smaller area to be repaired rather than using a traditional 6" buffer and repairing a much larger area than is necessary. We have these in all of our detail shops!

GREAT for bowls
I make a lot of bowls, platters, hollow forms. This sander excels in the coarser grits for smoothing without leaving marks. Many use drills as sanders and find they burn out due to dust packing in the bearings/bushings. Not this. I think it will last forever.

Very good detail sander
I purchased this sander to hopefully sand out the profiles on the panels of raised panel doors. It performed this effortlessly. It sure beats hand sanding. The machine has some serious power for the compact design, so hang on tightly when first engaging the work piece, as it can get away from you. I used 180 grit discs and they worked fine and lasted long enough to sand at least 5 door profiles on 4 edges. It is a great tool for my use, and I'm sure it will work very well on detail work. I wouldn't advise it on larger pieces due to the disc size.

Will the sander have enough power to sand and smoothe small bronze statues that have small surface holes and bumps?
Debbie on Jun 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have only used the sander on hardwoods the hardest being rosewood. A lack of power has never been a problem even after hours of use. I fade long before the sander. I purchased a second to have the use of two sanding grits available without having to change discs. I hope you find this sander meets your needs. I believe it will. Weight and a lack of a removable side handle is my only complaint . I don't think it impossible to improvise one but never got around to do it.
