The optional attachment worked great for several days. I was able to get into nooks and crevices with the special attachments easily, but the attachment base broke after I'd been using it for about 2 hours non stop one afternoon. Worked great when it worked, but it gave out in the middle of my project. It's possible I didn't attach the special attachment right, but I think it just gave out from extended use.

It's great for occasional use, but don't let it get hot! As online reviews have stated since 2010, the plastic tabs on the base will melt with heat and friction, rendering the tool useless. The Octo is manufactured by Bosch for consumer use, but the upgraded Bosch detail sander (different handle) is designed the same way - plastic base w/ plastic tabs that melt, for $100 more. Major engineering flaw that hasn't been addressed. As well, the sandpaper backing loses grip on the hook and loop well before the abrasive is worn out. I had no problem with glue coming loose on backing pads, though. Everything we buy anymore seems cheaply made and disposable. Same for the Octo.

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.)

I bought this at Lowe's to complete a project. The attachment parts began to break almost immediately. The worst part of the broken attachments was that the velcro pad that sand paper sticks to detached (became unglued) from the motor housing rendering half of the sander unusable!

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.

Good tool for smoothing hard to reach areas and for small projects around the home; however, if you are just doing flat surfaces I would recommend getting a Sheet Sander which costs less and works better. The pressure signal lights (green, yellow, red) lets you know when you are applying too much pressure or not enough. The clear canister catches the fine dust that would otherwise go everywhere and you can easily see when it needs to be cleaned out; however, the fine dust sticks together and to the inside of the canister so cleaning the canister poses some challenges but it's much better than breathing it or cleaning the work area. I use this for finishing jobs, but not for entire projects.
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.

I was sanding some cabinet doors and drawers that had some details in the wood. Not a big job, but not one where I wanted to hand sand. What attracted me to this sander was all the different attachments.

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.

Mine didn't break or melt but the hooked surface pad wore out so sanding pads won't stay on. I read through the manual and it states that it will eventually wear out and should be replaced. The kicker? I cant find a replacement any where in town or online. I bought the Skil brand out of loyalty and thinking I could get parts.. Boy, was I wrong. Also, I believe the sanding pads cost twice as much as they should.

I agree with the previous reviewer. After about 2 hours use, the plastic clip-type device that holds every attachment onto the Octo simply melted. It is now completely unusable. (Note that the main sanding base is also an attachment that will no longer clip onto the Octo.)

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!
