Customer Reviews

The paper simply will NOT stay clamped down.
Mad Dog
For someone who only uses a sander on an occasional basis and for very common tasks, this product is a very cost effective solution.
Ranger
If you buy a low cost tool, you'll get poor results.

I've had my B&D 7448 for a bit over 4 years. I use it a lot and use it hard. I'm impatient so I push tools hard instead of letting things take their normal course.
I've never had a problem with the paper coming out, ever. In fact, on mine it's very tight and clamps quite hard.
I wish the levers were larger.
I'd like it to be quieter - however I can't hear the sander when the vac. is running anyway and one SHOULD use hearing protection when using power tools. Like the pros on TV do :-)
As far as "how it's made", mine finally got VERY loud and ran slow and erraticly - I found the upper "brearing" is a plain sleave. The other sealed ball bearings are perfect, but the top "bushing" by the brushes is shot to heck. It's gone. Yeah, I push, but for a few cents per unit, a ball bearing here would make it quieter and make the whole unit last longer over-all.
So, out I go looking for a bearing and I'll have my favorite sander running again. (I'm a top mechanic and specialize in electrical systems - and this is the most simple power tool I've ever opened!)
It's light, easy to use and the next best sander costs over twice as much, so I can replace a couple of bearings in 10 years and still have a cheaper sander .... Takes about 5 minutes to disassemble the sander and replace the bearing - takes longer to go get the bearing.

I sometimes fail to remember that one gets what they pay for and this sander was no exception to that rule. I saw the 'price' and the 'intent' of this tool right off the bat. The price was right in that it was practically free compared to its nearest competitor! Unfortunately, the competitor sander had a lot more 'intent', and consequently... higher quality, durability and reliability in mind during the design and manufacturing process. My new Porter Cable 550 will probably end-up in my Great Grandchildren's hands in serviceable condition, and I am not a Grandpa yet!
After taking this sander out of its box, and putting it to use, it soon became clear that I could not keep sandpaper on it. As a result of its Billion RPM orbital action, it kept tearing off along the securing clamps on either end of the sander. I tried about every little trick I could think of before tossing this tool into the "lesson-learned pile" of other bargain-priced power tools in my shop. You know, the ones too worthless to really use, and too valuable to throw away? Don't end up spending your money twice on the same sort of tool. GO GET A PORTER CABLE, OR EQUIVALENT!!! If you want the Black and Decker Sander above, send me an email and you can have mine for the cost of shipping!

I own two of these, and they both have given up the ghost. This is the first bad review of a tool that I've given here[...], But I feel that the truth should be known. First of all, this thing takes way to long time to sand down anything. Either it eats the paper too fast, or like on my second one, the clamps were not strong enough, and the paper kept falling off. Not to mention that this thing is louder than my table saw.It's been a few years since mine died, and I've come to learn one undisputable fact. If you buy a low cost tool, you'll get poor results. What upsets me is that Black and Decker knows what kind of tool this is, but they still continue to make it the same way. No improvements at all. When I compare this to what I have now, they'll never get my money again. Don't put good money after bad. If you can't afford a high dollar sander, Ryobi has got a dandy little sander at an affordable price, and it's a heck of a lot better than this one. Buy anybody's but this one, you'll be glad you did. Sorry, Black and Decker, But I call it as I see it.

I have used a Model#FS350 Type1 (made in the U.K.)(Blue case) for a number of years and the only problem experienced is a bad on/off switch. I installed a jumper on the switch & it is still working. I purchased a Model#7448 (Black case - Made in China) to have as a backup and it broke down on the third time I used it. The motor runs but the pad doesn't vibrate. Another quality? product from China!!! Both units appear identical (inside & out) except for color and point of manufacture.

I owned the older B&D sanders, excellent machines, excellent value for the money, the sandpaper clamps were different and did an excellent job of holding onto the sandpaper. The newer redesigned levers on the sides of the sander are junk, far too weak, won't hold onto the sandpaper, tried several different kinds of paper, kept sliding out, usually in 20 - 30 seconds or less. Useless.

I wonder if there's something wrong with the clamps on a batch of these. We bought this a couple years ago and never really used it much. Just started trying to use it in earnest this evening and I will add my "paper falls off" woes to the group.

I tried about ten times with a number of different types of sandpaper - it seems that the clamps tighten down when you pull up on the lever, but in order to lock the levers into place they "relax" just a little bit and the paper doesn't hold in place well. Just a tiny bit of sideways motion and yep, paper starts to slide right off...

Sounds like they've had this model forever - maybe it's time the old B&D spent some money on R&D and upgraded their product a little bit.

Looks like it goes on the garage sale pile and it's time to try out another...
