    Comments about POWERGLIDE Power Glide® 1/4"" Sheet Sander:

    I picked this unit up as an emergency replacement when the cord on my 20-year old DeWalt unit became a hazard.

    I use the sanders primarily for small cabinet construction projects. This unit is fine for sanding large, flat areas, and so-so for interior corners and interior edges where two sheets meet. It was easy to control when sanding unsupported, narrow edges and exterior corners - there was little rounding over.

    This is a good, but not remarkable product with some distinct drawbacks: 1) the dust collection system is a joke. It is essentially non-functional without a vacuum attachment; 2) placement of the paper must be very precise, or the clips will not engage tightly. It usually took several tries to get the paper exactly oriented; 3) the dust cover on the power switch is remarkably stiff, making switch operation not as easy as I am used to.

    This is a good unit at an attractive price. I would recommend this unit to a friend who needed a light-duty sander. But I will probably use the DeWalt more, when I have replaced the cord.

      Comments about POWERGLIDE Power Glide® 1/4"" Sheet Sander:

      I saw the comments about this sander not holding the sandpaper. That is a lame claim. If you fold and tear your full sheets like I do there is no problem holding the paper. The spring wire arms held up just fine. I just used it to sand 28 portable wine racks. I used it to clean up the routered round over edges and remove the table saw marks on the edges. Also worked well for removing the lumber yard ink label from the pine boards. I was suprised at how quiet this sander is. After runnig 60, 100, 150 grit and emory cloth I would recommend this sander to anyone from beginner to pro.

            I was lookin for a sander I could use once in a while for small projects. There are many to choose from on the internet and reviews are not very good. For this particular sander, reviews indicated the sandpaper doesn't stay on and it has poor dust control. But, this is the one I chose. I am very happy with it. The sandpaper stays on just fine for me and the dust control is good, the bag stays on. I ordered it online and it shipped to my local ACE where I picked it up. Everything went smooth with that as well.

                  Comments about POWERGLIDE Power Glide® 1/4"" Sheet Sander:

                  I only use this sander occasionally. If it had more power, I'd use it more often. Changing sandpaper can be a bit tedious. The dust collection feature is mediocre at best.
                  Only buy this sander if you just need something to use a few times a year for light sanding.
                  Usually I get aggravated with this sander and finish the job by hand.
