Good little sander

Customer review by Homebodywife

5.0 stars by Homebodywife

I bought this sander to refinish a few pieces of furniture. It's perfect for the job and has saved me a ton of time. I have found the 1/4 sheet sand paper hard to find, and have simply cut sand paper into quarters. I would never use the sander indoors. It would make a huge mess, but is perfect if you're using it outdoors.

Great Sander

Customer review by Gilly88

This was the only model sander I could find that connected with my shop vac hose which just slipped into the bag opening on the sander. This worked great - no dust what so ever. The sander worked good with just the dust collecter bag, but I would not expect the bag to be efficient with dry wall dust which will blow thru any filter. I am very happy with this sander and now I can throw away my old Porter Cable sander.

I bought this sander to refinish furniture and it works great. I'm a small woman and had no problem controlling the sander. the refills are cheap which is another plus. The only thing i noticed is dust goes right through the collection bag which isnt a big deal sine I use it outside to keep the dust out of my house.

  • The FS540 ¼ Sheet Finish Sander will accept a vacuum hose which has an inside diameter of 1 ¼”.

  • No shop vac hose, including the Black and Decker Shop Vac hose will attach to this sander. The small dust collector bag attaches via a round rectangular opening (straight parallel sides with rounded ends) that a hose will not attach to. However the dust collector bag does allow for a significant amount of sanding to be done before it requires emptying.

  • Black & Decker does not recommend using the FS540 1/4 Sheet Finishing Sander for drywall sanding. Extended use in this type of application will cause premature failure of the sander. The fine dust generated by sanding will clog the bearings, gears and switch in the sander.

  • The outside diameter of the outlet is 1 1/2 inch. It will work with any vacuum that accepts that size.
