This is the least comfortable to use sander I have owned! I repair and refinish furniture for a living, so sanders in my shop get daily use, and I have found the Porter-Cable sanders to be the best bang for your buck, and have used them almost exclusively for the last 12 years.I ordered this to replace a Porter-Cable sander that was just plain worn out after 3 years of daily use, and thought the low profile design would help with getting into some of the tighter areas on furniture, such as drawer openings ect.The sander seems to be built…

Porter Cable #394 orbital sander I purchased this sander to replace an older Porter Cable model of a similar orbital sander based on test rports I had read and concur it is the best of its class on the market. In use it prodces a surface without any swirl marks that show when finish applied. It is well balanced and easy to use. I do not use the attached dust collector; using instead my PC dust colector via its hose with excellent collection of dust. The attached dust collector might be handy if the sander is used away…
