Can't rate it too poorly, as it's a great sander with attachments that initially work very well. Use it for more than an hour, and the tabs break off. Too bad, because I'd pay considerably more for it if Bosch would beef it up with a metal base and heat-resistant attachments. (Bought mine at Lowe's and returned it broken.)
As well, the machine is a little under powered and the dust collection system only collects about 1/3 of the dust generated by the machine. It's more of a vanity dust bin than anything else. Finally, the dust bin is attached by friction which makes it particularly difficult to remove -- after my first use of the machine I thought the bin was fused closed because it was so difficult to remove.
The shortcomings of this item call to question the Skill name. In the past I perceived Skill to be a producer of quality products. I now consider Skill to be a producer of cheaply made throw-away tools. I will be more cautious before purchasing Skill again.
Here are some other choices to consider for your project:
1. Belt Sanders spin a loop paper between two or more wheels and it's better to sand large or rough surfaces fast.
2. Random Orbit Sanders move in random circular motion and it's great to sand almost any surface cleanly. They can remove a good amount of material and deliver a smooth finish.
3. Sheet Sanders like this one move in a constant pattern of small circles and are better to smooth flat surface.
Where do I start with the complaints. The sandpaper is attached to the attachments with velcro. The velcro is very cheaply designed. After sanding only 3 doors the velcro was pealing off. So, the sandpaper would not stick to the attachment. The sandpaper is specially design and is sold in a variety pack for about $10. You have to buy this even though you only need one size of the sandpaper.
Finally, the dust filter? That's a joke. The dust cannister never collected any of the dust. Fortunately, I was outside sanding. I returned it to Lowes the following morning.
This sander has all kinds of design flaws.
When it did work, it was nice; however, it is way to tall to fit between railings, etc. Perhaps hand sanding is the only true solution!

The sander is fine, but there are sandpaper issues. The biggest one is Skil doesn't make a grit higher than 120 for it. Read morePublished 2 months ago by IndyBravos
