DEWALT - 1/4 Sheet Palm Grip Sander
Bought this sander two weeks ago to sand some hard to reach areas of the floor that I was finishing as well as for upcoming woodworking projects. Great little sander except for one major flaw....really wish the electrical cord was three- (3) feet longer.
Was using it yesterday to sand a door that I am building...again...really wish the electrical cord was just three- (3) feet longer...that is all...just three more feet.

Good for the price DWE6411
Quiet operation, didn't see any dust blow-by from the collector bag. Well balanced seems lighter than the DW411 I had, that just died. Not sure if it sands more or less aggressively than the DW411. I like the front mounted sandpaper clamp along with the double rear 'spring' clamp, it seems that to be easier to draw the paper tighter. I hope lasts along as the DW411...

I was given one of these around 20 years ago. I used it for many years, until the pad was nearly completely worn out. I decided I needed a new sander, and knew exactly what to buy. I like this sander because you can buy sheets of sandpaper and cut your own pieces. Save money compared to the discs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Working With Pallet Wood:
I can use this tool for 20 min at a time with no noticeable fatigue. Shaves off a lot with 60 grit sandpaper although it burns through sandpaper pretty quick so make sure you have enough sheets! It can reveal raw wood on a 2X4X3 in about 3 min per side if the board is smooth.
Cord is a good length, it has two prongs so it can be used with any suitable extension cord.
The vac pick up everything as long as the board is flat and doesnt blow anything noticeable out of the filter. I feel like the sandpaper lasts longer without using the hole punch.
It actually buffs nails and screws to a sheen but going over them wrecks the sandpaper almost instantly - within 5 min.
All in all this sander is crucial for light/medium sanding purposes. For heavy jobs a planer, hand belt sander, or a grinder and sanding wheel would be ideal. If you need something as thick as an 1/8 of an inch gouge removed this is not the tool (unless you have 30 min and a couple sheets of paper to spare).
I try to sand with the grain, but no matter the direction it always comes out smooth for 60 grit. Haven't done any finishing sanding yet but I have no doubts it will not perform.
I haven't tried the shop-vac connection yet either but the sander alone picks up nearly everything so I'm not worried there either.
Great tool. Couldn't be happier with the purchase!
