SV12SG Palm sander


Found it a very comfortable sander to use for reasonable periods.
Powerfull, but if you put a lot of pressure on it, the orbital action stops.
It creates an excellent finish when used with fine paper, but can also remove a lot with coarser papers.
The on/off switch could benifit from being rotated so its a little easier to operate with your finger. The paper clips are strong and easy to undo. Its supplied with a punch plate.
The dust bag isnt brilliant when using very fine abrasives, the finer dust seems to just blow straight through. Vibration is minimal.

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety one?

i had that palm sander and the plate vibrated off, and all dust just passes straight through the dust a makita one now, much better.

If you have one, i would check their rubbish plate screws regularly.......and buy a dust mask.
