Makita BO 4556 Palm Sander plus Clamp has a new design of easy-grip body shape which makes this sander a pleasure to use. Complete with pack of 6 abrasive papers, dust bag and punch plate. The new slimline body makes for a smaller, more comfortable handgrip. This feature will particularly appeal to ladies with smaller hands who want to use this for decorating preparation, furniture work or craft activities, but will also be greatly appreciated by professional decorators as it will be much more comfortable in extended use.

This palm sander was purchased to replace a very tired old "cheap no name" machine of the same size that has come to the end of its useful working life. When first unpacked I was delighted at the solid feel of the Makita and was soon cutting lengths of sandpaper to try it out. This version of the Makita palm sander uses the flip over spring system of fastening paper which, although a bit fiddly,holds the paper securely. You also get a simple plastic tool that punches the paper so that the inbuilt dust extraction system works. This punch is extremely easy to use. The dust bag fits easily and quickly and is not obtrusive when the machine is in use.
Palm sanders of this size are extremely useful for many jobs and invaluable, for example, when sanding stairs where a larger random orbital sander has been used which cannot get into the corners. The high speed of the Makita gets the job done quickly, leaves a good finish, and is comfortable to handle. The power cord is a bit on the short side which means that you have to trail an extension lead around - but this is common with many tools of this type.
I have not awarded the machine five stars for two reasons.
Firstly: If, like me, you suffer from arthritic fingers the spring paper retaining system [whilst very effective] is a bit awkward to use. To solve this I have since bought a replacement pad for the sander [as fitted to the Makita BO4555] that uses Velcro to hold the paper in place - slightly more expensive in terms of sandpaper but easier to use.
Secondly: Palm sanders are all notorious for their ability to create dust, even when their dust extraction systems are fitted, and the Makita is no exception.Read more ›
Purchased to replace a 'rubbish' Draper sander~ the spring clips gave up holding the sandpaper after about a week of heavy use.
This sander just feels right and works brilliantly. The dust collection bag really does keep dust levels down. Noise level is very low for an orbital sander and the vibration is minimal through the hand and wrist making extended use quite acceptable. Very easy to control on small work areas~ it does'nt skim away from you unexpectedly spoiling a fine finish and single handed work around tight access areas is easy. The inclusion of a jig to perforate sanding sheets is great as it allows you to cut your own from sandpaper rolls which works out much cheaper than purpose cut packs. The sandpaper spring clip holders are somewhat 'fiddly' but seem robust~ hope they retain tension for longer than my Draper.
The cable is good quality and of reasonable length, the base fits the normal rolls of abrasive paper in DIY shops so only one cut is needed to get a good fit.
The switch means that you dont need to squeeze any trigger during use,
Wear a mask and ear protection with this it is loud and still puts out a lot of dust very quickly.

You won't get a better palm sander for this money, and it's really not worth paying less for something which will perform poorly and break after a few months. Just get this one.Published 2 months ago by thoiter
