Good sanding, horribly dusty

Thought this looked like all the others out there so figured I would get it since it is a few dollars cheaper. The sander sanded well and is easy to use. BUT the dust collector is horrible! The dust just blows right through the holes in the bag, out the sides of the sanding pad, everywhere!!! I was sanding a couple patch jobs down and my entire room filled with dust. I had to open all the windows to clear the air since it was like a cloud. I'd say if you are planning on only using this outside and using good breathing masks then go ahead. But personally I'm returning mine and buying one that has a better dust collector.

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.

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.

This is a great little sander. I am much more a Makita, Porter Cable kind of guy, but I researched a lot and determined this was the best sander available, price irrelevant. I have had it 4-5 years and I so far have been correct. Sander works great, dust collector even works fairly well, but the real issue is that it holds all grades of sandpaper easily and firmly. I don't use this sander real often, but when I do, it is typically for larger projects. I would still buy this sander, regardless of price.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.
