Great sander/grinder! Forget the sanding backer pads that the prior user utilized. The only way to go now is with Norton's multi piece sanding "Flap disks". These last much longer than old style sanding disks as well as following profiles better. Weight to power is better than Makita and others. The on/off switch is unique and accident proof, for the most part. At 5 lbs. it can get a little heavy at the end of the day, but is sure beats scraping. I don't use the shield on sanding projects. Just keep it at 5-10 degrees and it follows very well and blows the dust sideways. Practice a bit before hitting your work and you'll eliminate swirls on the wood. JR

Does not have a backing device (that works) for the round sand paper products sold. You must buy the MORE EXPENSIVE grind and sand devices that come with hard backings. The whole shebang or nothing.

This is a great multipurpose grinder. It's small enough to get into tight places, the handle can be repositioned depending on the need or removed all together. Lots of touque so hold on when you flip that switch. The bearing is in a metal housing so no worries about over heating and melting a plastic housing, Which I had happen on a cheaper brand model. I used it for hours stripping paint with wire wheels with no problems. I also use it for cutting, buffing alluminum on my bike, and plain ole grinding. A very good value for any do it yourselfer. .
