First Impressions

Dewalt adopted the same clamp system as some of the other manufacturers to great success. This is how all 1/4 sheet sanders should load sandpaper. Feels good in the hand with minimal vibration. The reduced height definitely helps to with control.

Full Review

The Dewalt DWE6411K 1/4 Sheet Palm Sander is a great sander and possibly more important, a great value.  This kit comes with a carry bag, quick connect for shop vac, and the cherry on the top………the 1/4 sheet sand paper hole punch. The hole punch is a nice tuck-in that actually helps the performance of the unit when it’s hooked up to a vacuum system. I tested the unit on some dry wall patch and on wood patch on a door. The DWE6411K works nicely and efficiently.  Recommended to all of our Tool Space users.
