This sanding block is almost identical to the Veritas sanding block sold by Lee Valley (for twice as much). The Veritas block is a 5 star - better finish, better knurled knob, and better springs. However, functionally, they're both about the same. I have several of these guys loaded with different grit sandpaper. I use them daily. Indispensable.

Tip: Cut 11" sandpaper sheet in half (2 5-1/2" sheets). Cut these 2 sheets in thirds to yield 6 3"x5-1/2" sheets. Set one sheet on bench edge with slight overhang. Centered sanding block base on paper. Wrap paper ends around base. Pick up in palm of hand up holding paper in place w/ thumb and fingers. Screw top on to base. Springs will draw the paper tight as the knob is tightened. Use a full sheet of sandpaper with no waste.

This is an "okay" sanding block, but I must admit that I was hoping for something a little better.

First, it is very heavy and substantial, which is good. The wood body feels good in the hand and is shaped well, and the quality of the wood (either oak or ash) appears good. However the fit and finish of the components is questionable. The knurled knob on the top is cheaply made and roughly finished. The metal plate on the bottom has four spring clips used to hold the paper in place, and out of the box, all of the clips were bent out of shape (though the packaging was undamaged, leading me to believe that this is a manufacturing flaw).

While sanding, it does a nice job of holding the paper, though I think it could be easier to mount the paper on the plate. The amount of felt on the plate seems adequate for now, though after a few uses it is showing a little compression. Not a big deal, but long term it could be a bit of a problem.

So, yes, the tool performs as advertised. But, as far as longevity is concerned, or ease of use over the long haul, there are certainly going to be other competing products which will easily surpass this block. If you are a tool collector, such as myself, that insists on purchasing only the best tools that will last a lifetime or longer (e.g. Lie Nielsen), you may be disappointed with the merely passable quality of this sanding block.

As an aside, I've learned over the past decade that Shop Fox products are typically low-end products posing as high-end products. I just gave away some really disappointing Shop Fox precision squares that I had originally purchased about eight years ago; the quality of the squares was quite simply plebeian and poor, and I found I simply never reached for them (preferring to use my Starrett, Veritas, iGuaging, or Empire products instead. Lesson learned and, so, I suspect that this will be my last Shop Fox purchase.

I've owned one of these for many years. Love the product. Sturdy, and has lasted for a long time in a professional environment. The weight is great for better sanding control, yet not too much to make your wrist tired.

Tip: use a thinly cut piece of duct tape to hold the sand paper down onto the plate on each end of the paper. Place the thin pieces of duct tape on the paper, then put the wood top back onto the post and tighten the knob. This helps insure a properly aligned paper, without having to cut a larger piece. Less waste.

No serious woodworker can attain the best possible finish without a bevy of sanding tools, each suited to its appropriate application. When I need to hand sand flat surfaces, I grab my Shop Fox D2823 sanding block. I have five of them, each labeled with escalating grits--from 120 to 320. Even though changing paper is simple and easy, I like the convenience of just moving up to a finer grit with no fuss. This is my preferred tool for hand finishing flat surfaces. With a felt backer it smoothly glides over the wood, molding itself to subtle nuances. It almost seems to adhere to the surface. Also, it doesn't round off the edges and produce a convex crown. Interestingly, I didn't buy all five blocks at the same time. Instead, I purchased one, and liked it so much I added to my collection--and I'll probably buy one more. This sanding block has a nice heft and tactile feel--to the point that it somewhat offsets the tediousness of hand sanding. And that's about the best you can reasonably expect from a simple wooden sanding block.

I just received this today. The wood was splintered and the bottom had a bulge under the felt.
Removing the felt showed a weld blob, which would have caused the sander to make a groove in anything I used it on.

So I wasted an hour grinding this down till it was flat, reapplied the felt, and...drumroll please... it works about as well as any of my handmade blocks, which cost nothing.

It would have been more satisfying to have just thrown it away.

So disappointing. This is a cheap copy of a sander I got from Japan Woodworker years ago. Wood palm block workmanship is sloppy, and the "spring clips" that snug up the paper are just aluminum and not spring steel at all ... So they compress. And the knurled brass nob, doesn't accurately thread onto the shaft ... Too tight to tighten or loosen by hand. All in all a piece of junk. If I could get my money back, I would.
