Product Description

Product Description

2 Year Black & Decker Warranty. ZONE TOUCH TECHNOLOGY - 3 position LED indicator communicates optimal sanding pressure. Auto Calibration - calibrates each zone position specific to your household power. Compact, Lightweight design is an ideal shape for comfort & control

From the Manufacturer

The MS600B is an intelligent tool that gives feedback while sanding. A three-position Zone Light Indicator communicates when the sander is working most efficiently for the best sanding results, eliminating inconsistencies and divots in your sanding projects. By sensing motor speed, the Zone Light will illuminate as single green light to indicate on and light sanding modes, a full green light indicates that you are applying proper amount of pressure for the best surface finish, and a red light illuminates when you apply to much pressure on the sander. The MS600B is also built with Auto Calibration, a feature which calibrates the three position indicator based on the incoming voltage from the power outlet each time you turn on the Mouse. This calibration step sets the zones to ensure consistent sanding performance regardless of the natural power fluctuations in your home. This also ensures optimal efficiency. The MS600B is a versatile sander that takes you from general sanding to sanding tight corners and curved shapes other sanders can't accomplish. A separate detail finger attachment sands deep into corners and other hard-to-reach areas. The MS600B is also sold with groove, outer-curve sanding attachments to sand curved shapes like chair spindles, dowels, recessed areas of woodworking projects, grooved surfaces and more. The MS600B is also sold with 12 sanding accessories and a storage bag.

The detail attachments that would otherwise make this tool useful vs. a normal orbital sander (and why I gave the brand the benefit of the doubt and tried it) are held in place with a machine screw that mounts into a plastic housing. In literally less than one hour of use the same day of purchase, the mount had broken out of the base. This led to excess vibration of the attachments, and thus very quickly to the breakage of the (also) plastic tabs that help hold them in the tool. The superglue I used to hold it together to finish the ONE job I started after purchasing new made for a stronger joint than the original, but attachments would no longer mount correctly. More interesting, the built-in pressure sensor (a worthless feature) never even went red to indicate pressure high enough to damage the workpiece, and yet the tool still came apart at its seams. Even the "flat" attachment to mount the regular sheets of sandpaper would no longer hold solidly to the base. I am a woodworker with a serious shop, but not a professional. This is without doubt the poorest quality tool I have purchased/used in 15+ years. Coupled with the high price of velcro-backed sandpaper (no clips are used to hold sandpaper to base on this model) makes this a tool completely unworthy of recommendation.

The search for a reasonably priced finish sander continues... I had hoped that this little unit from Black & Decker would hold up for a while and I would get some good use out of it. I was disappointed.
First, the "Zone Touch" feature is worthless. The red light comes on until the unit gets up to speed but after that you could beat it against a wall and the light would stay green!
The sanding platform is attached to the unit with three screws. After only a couple hours of use, the plastic attachment posts around the screws detached from the rest of the unit. There was no way to fix it since the plastic itself had literally liquified and separated. I called the Black & Decker helpline and they referred me to the DeWalt repair center in the metro area in which I live. I haven't yet taken it over there since the gas/time may cost me as much as a new unit.
I liked the versatility and comfort of this unit but it doesn't do any good if the machine isn't working at all.

I have to agree with others who have complained about the quality. My wife, who is not very hard on tools, had the tip break off of the mount pad with less than 2 hours of use. The sander is a great size for reaching tight areas but needs better quality plastics in it construction. While not highend, this sander is not cheap([...])It should last longer than 2 hours.

Dang! I wish I would have read the other reviews before I bought this!

I have only used this sander on one project. I loved the size, shape, and the attachments for getting into small places, and for a time, it worked quite well.

I used it on one project. Refinishing an old chair. Started to work on the matching table and noticed that it suddenly got much louder...clackety clack...and started to vibrate much harder so that it wanted to jump and skip when touched to the wood surface. Also, I tended to really burn through a lot of the finger attachment paper and had to special order it online after much searching and many emails to locate it. So that's sad...if you have the paper included in the kit, then have it available on the shelves whereever it is sold...a must.

So I contacted B&D re the noise. Directions say in large print to call before returning the product for repair. So after being on hold forever (and it was really annoying because every 30 seconds or so, it asked me to restate my phone number), a rep told me to return it to my nearest service center. I told them I could not locate my nearest service center. They looked it up and rather astonishingly said "there isn't one any closer than 300 miles from you"...Gee, welcome to rural America! So, as it stands, my project is on hold while they send me a return label to ship it to my "nearest service center" and I'm not sure what will happen after that. Do they charge me to repair it? Will they give me a new one? Will the new one break down right away? Does anybody know of another sander that will do all this one can do that is light, has little attachments and LASTS?

So, like the title said...GREAT idea, but apparently poor quality and durability.

I didn't even have to put this sander to wood to realize it was worthless. Five seconds after I turned it on, the tip fell off and the velcro-backed sandpaper had slid half-way off the base. It is nonfunctional. Don't we have laws that prohibit the sale of nonmerchantable goods? Isn't there someone I can write to protest this abuse? Perhaps President Obama will put an end to Black and Decker's shenanigans.

I bought this product at Home Depot to use on a smaller project. Within a few days the tip of the base broke off and I went to Home Depot and replaced it. Later that week, the tip broke off the second mouse sander. Looks like I'm not the only one that is having problems with this product.
