4-0 out of 5 stars Where is the UL seal?
This is an excelent grinder. I delayed getting it because I could not determine why it was not UL listed. I have two other grinders... a top of the line Sears Craftsman and Dewalt's best model... it's easier to have three grinders than to be changing attachments all the time. I didn't want to by a third top of the line unit. This one is comfortable, powerful, and the power switch is in a logical location and is easy to turn off quickly... beware some other low-priced (non-UL) grinders have a very clumsy switch which could be difficult to ulock and turn off in an emergency. I have not been able to determine why this one is not UL listed... I called B&D and they gave me the run-around... I bought the grinder anyway.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use
The Black and Decker G850 is a breeze to use. I needed a grinder for a project and spent more time then I should have looking for one at a good price and that would meet my needs. I actually took a chance on this grinder. I have used other small angle grinders at work,,but this one was much easier to handle. I could grip it at the center,,near the top or about anywhere and the balance was great. Sure makes it easy on the arms. I also like the area were the switch is at, toward the rear, under the handle. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good sander for the $$, only a couple of issues
I've had my B&D 7448 for a bit over 4 years. I use it a lot and use it hard. I'm impatient so I push tools hard instead of letting things take their normal course.
I've never had a problem with the paper coming out, ever. In fact, on mine it's very tight and clamps quite hard.
I wish the levers were larger.
I'd like it to be quieter - however I can't hear the sander when the vac. is running anyway and one SHOULD use hearing protection when using power tools. Like the pros on TV do :-)
As far as "how it's made", mine finally got VERY loud and ran slow and erraticly - I found the upper "brearing" is a plain sleave. The other sealed ball bearings are perfect, but the top "bushing" by the brushes is shot to heck. It's gone. Yeah, I push, but for a few cents per unit, a ball bearing here would make it quieter and make the whole unit last longer over-all.
So, out I go looking for a bearing and I'll have my favorite sander running again. (I'm a top mechanic and specialize in electrical systems - and this is the most simple power tool I've ever opened!)
It's light, easy to use and the next best sander costs over twice as much, so I can replace a couple of bearings in 10 years and still have a cheaper sander .... Takes about 5 minutes to disassemble the sander and replace the bearing - takes longer to go get the bearing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Reliable, hard working sander
I have spent countless hours and reams of sandpaper using this sander for at least 8 years and it's still going strong (used mostly on softwood). It is powerful enough using 60 grit paper to take down dowel ends, round edges and level uneven wood height (even end grain). After 60 grit, I use 100, 150 and finally 220 grit for a perfect finish. The 1/3 sheet size gives the unit a stable footing on the work. The unit is made for two hands but you can use one hand comfortably especially with fine grits. Paper changes are pretty fast but could be easier if they made the lock levers a little bigger. The best way I found to get the paper on easier is to clamp and crease one edge first, flip the paper around, clamp the other end then attach the first pre-creased edge.

Be warned that you can expect dust to go all over the place using this unit. It is best used outdoors or like I do, with the garage door open and a fan blowing out over the work. If I do replace it, it will be to upgrade to a 1/2 sheet sander with a dust bag (at four times the price!!).

1-0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR WOODWORKERS
I own two of these, and they both have given up the ghost. This is the first bad review of a tool that I've given here[...], But I feel that the truth should be known. First of all, this thing takes way to long time to sand down anything. Either it eats the paper too fast, or like on my second one, the clamps were not strong enough, and the paper kept falling off. Not to mention that this thing is louder than my table saw.It's been a few years since mine died, and I've come to learn one undisputable fact. If you buy a low cost tool, you'll get poor results. What upsets me is that Black and Decker knows what kind of tool this is, but they still continue to make it the same way. No improvements at all. When I compare this to what I have now, they'll never get my money again. Don't put good money after bad. If you can't afford a high dollar sander, Ryobi has got a dandy little sander at an affordable price, and it's a heck of a lot better than this one. Buy anybody's but this one, you'll be glad you did. Sorry, Black and Decker, But I call it as I see it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not waste your time or money on this sander
The paper will not stay on! I repeat. The paper will not stay on. Spend more and get a product that does what it was intended to do. This product does not!

2-0 out of 5 stars Spend more, get more
I concur with Handy Dan. The paper simply will NOT stay clamped down. After fighting with it for 3 days I took it back to the store. Other than that it was doing fairly well. I plan on spending more money to get a quality tool that will work as it should. ... Read more

The Black & Decker MS700K Mega Mouse four-in-one sander/polisher is designed to make quick work of your sanding, finishing, and polishing jobs. The Mega Mouse combines the functionality of a finish sander, detail sander, random-orbit sander, and random-orbit polisher in one compact unit. A unique design and interchangeable base system allow the Mega Mouse to sand, finish, and polish large surface areas and tight spaces with precision and grace.

The tool's 1.4 amp motor delivers 10,500 opm, for quality results in any application. Use the Mega Mouse to smooth rough, uneven surfaces; to polish hardwood floors, furniture, and other flat surfaces; and even to wash and wax the car. It really is that versatile. --Carl Thress ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Get what you pay for... maybe a little less
I bought this some time ago to use as a general sander. It is too light duty and too much "try to please everyone," though. The thing makes waay to much noise, I hope MY dust collector (not ONCE have I taken dust out if it since it has never collected any) fell off, it seems that some plastic piece rattles around in that area and is magnifying the noise the sander makes. As I said, although this sander does sand, I would not recommend it even for medium jobs, such as sanding a piece of wood with rough paper (grits 50, 80, 120) before you get to the finish (220+ grit) step. It just takes too long to sand with this sander.

Also,a *big* bother for me: The sandpaper you can get for this at a superstore comes with tear-away pieces for the other B&D sanders (mouse, detail, whatever). Well I hate it because the stupid sandpaper tears in the tear away perforations (since this is the biggest sander you don't have to tear anything away to make it fit) and I strongly believe this has made the sandpaper last WAAAY less than normal. This alone is reason enough for me to say "don't buy this thing." The "produce a single sheet of sandpaper for all our models" idea makes sense to some dumb marketer at B&D, but you're stuck with the self-destroying sandpaper.

Man do I hate changing the paper because it is torn away at the tear marks and not because I have used it up!

If I were a prospective buyer I would skip this sander and buy a better quality one from the "serious" toolmakers like Porter Cable, DeWalt, Bosch or Makita for about the same money for a base model sander.

Bottom line: I own this sander and I'm about to replace it with something different.

1-0 out of 5 stars black decker 4-1 multi sander ms700
Sander okay for small sanding project. Dust collector fell off after first use. Once supplied sandpaper with kit is used, it is impossible to locate additional paper.

1-0 out of 5 stars black and decker mega mouse
I used one on only one piece of furniture, the allen wrench fruitless whirled around rendering the "interchange" parts all useless. The sawdust collector appears not to be connected to the unit at all. Dust all over the place except in the holder. I tried 2 of them and will return the second soon - Worthless- correct your flaws Black and Decker!

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost 5 stars
This was a present from my family. While I am not a big fan of "do it all" tools, the Mega Mouse sander seems to do the job. For what it is designed for, it does quite well. Small to medium project sanding seems to be what this tool is designed for. If you are going to sand a floor, you should get something that is designed for it.

On the other hand, if you are working small projects, this is it. Even medium sized work, in my case a 6' X 4' deck that serves as my front porch. It needed sanding after some pressure washing, and I did not look forward to doing it by hand. Out came the Mega Mouse, and it did the job very nicely. I am satisfied with the product so far, and I reccommend it as long as you realize that you are not getting a heavy duty belt sander. Keep this in mind and you won't be disappointed.

The four star rating is due to the plastic case. Too tight, too hard to get everything back into it. But so far that's my only quibble with the thing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Buy the regular mouse and a better sander
I wore this unit out in less than 90 days. The RO sanding base lost its hooks, the mouse base broke, the dust control unit fell off and the finger attachment wouldn't stay in place. I returned it, bought the little mouse and a better RO sander and spent the same amount of money. It was an appealing idea to get all of those tools in one, but the whole package doesn't stand up to more than light duty. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice
I would recommend this tool to any handyman, I have used the sander and am very well pleased with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money!
Don't throw away your money! I purchased this as a backup sander to my makita ros. Any pressure placed on this sander other than its own weight will greatly decline the rpm's. After just a few hours, this sander lost all of what power it had and it now resides in the trash. It's loud and it has a terrible vibration. Take it from me, spend a few more dollars and get a makita! B & D's are nothing by throwaway tools.

1-0 out of 5 stars Works great but poorly built
Inexpensive, light weight and works really well. What more could you ask for.... After only 2 hours of use the handle part simply fell apart. The plastic casing started to literally go to pieces. Maybe an occasional defective one that got thru inspection. Exchanged this one for a new one. Same story. I think the vibration is too much for the casing.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than I expected
I bought this sander based on price. I thought it would help with a specific project and perhaps I would buy a "better" one later. I found this to be a great sander. It's powerful, yet smooth and I have even used it with 200 grit to sand BETWEEN coats. Now the only sander I plan to buy is something like a Mouse to get into corners

5-0 out of 5 stars I sanded for weeks with this sander!
This is an easy to use orbit sander which can be used for refinishing desks or other projects. The 5-inch pad with Velcro brand hook & loop fasteners is so much more advanced than the ones they used to make. You can now easily change out the sandpaper when you need fine or coarse sandpaper.

The built in dust collector is a real boon. Not only did my first sander not have one....it also made me cough and left dust all over the garage. This is so much better! This is a good little sander for the casual woodworker. I have had two, my dad stole the first one I had. It sure beats those belt sanders, which cost about the same price to rent. They also pull you half way across the room! Seriously, this it so much better!

When you are refinishing, the job will be easier if you use the paint removal products first. Look for the non-toxic ones. They are out there. Then let the wood dry completely. You will then have an easier time sanding. I found a 50-year old teachers desk and finished it to perfection. You would think it was new! Yes, it took weeks of hard work, but there is nothing that makes you feel as proud as a finished product. I am sitting at the desk as I type this. All thanx to a great sander. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The smooth, contoured grip on Black & Decker's Mouse sander/polisher fits snugly in your hand, making this tool remarkably easy to use. The two interchangeable bases are easy to put on and take off (although we had to do it a couple of times to get the hang of it). The iron shaped base is specially designed for larger sanding, scrubbing, and polishing jobs, while the base with a detail tip is perfect for maneuvering in smaller, hard-to-reach areas. The Velcro fastening system makes paper changes quick and easy, saving you both time and frustration. And, because the tip of the sandpaper commonly wears out first, each sheet of sandpaper comes with an extra tab; simply rip the tab off along the perforated lines and use it to replace the tip when it wears out. The Mouse runs at 11,000 orbits per minute, a nice balance between strength and finesse.

We tested ours sanding in between chair spindles and were immediately impressed with the smooth (and fast) results. Then we switched bases and put the Mouse to work on larger surfaces; vibration was minimal. The Mouse is easy to control--which is a big plus if you plan to use the tool for long periods of time. It's a great buy for home hobbyists. In fact, when you get right down to it, your imagination might be the only limit on how many projects this tool can tackle. --Dori Anvinson ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nix the Velcro, Black & Decker!
I am an avid woodworker and use my Mouse on a daily basis. The only problem I have with this sander is that if you, like me, change sanding pads frequently - either from heavy use or to change to a finer/coarser grit sand paper - you will find that the velcro adhesive comes apart from the base. I tried gluing the velcro back on, which works as long as I don't change pads again. Once I change the sandpaper out, no matter how careful I am to hold the velcro while pulling the sandpaper off, the velcro still will not stay.

I have considered buying a different detail sander, but do like the Mouse for its lightness and orbiting features. The Mouse's size also enables me to get into smaller areas, which helps with the type of woodworking I do. Because of the positive features, I have settled into a compromise with the beast. I no longer have the velcro on the Mouse at all, but use adhesive sandpaper which I put directly onto the cushioned pad where the velcro used to sit. I have to trim the sandpaper to the correct size and shape, but it works just as well. If it weren't for the velcro pad not holding up, I'd give this little sander five stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars I Hope It's Not Being Discontinued in Favor of Mega Mouse
I bought this sander primarily as an inexpensive detail sander. I figured that I'd have to resort to using the "finger" base plate, but have found that the steam iron shape allows great access to corners and tight spaces. Does a good job at (quietly and without a lot of vibration) smoothing out paint between coats and doing fine finish work. If you need to remove a lot of material (i.e.: very rough or very large surface), I'd recommend a random orbit sander, 1/# sheet, or belt sander.

The case is convenient, as it holds a lot of supplies. It is not, however, what I'd call heavy duty.

The sander does go thru sandpaper quickly. I agree with other reviewers--I'd be nice to be able to buy it in bulk.

I see this sander less and less in stores; I hope that B&D is not discontinuing this product in favor of the Mega Mouse. That might make finding supplies for the Mouse more difficult.

3-0 out of 5 stars Really good - except
I've had my mouse for about a year. For the most part, it's had very light use. Recently, I started using it more and it's had moderate use this summer.

It fits my hand nicely, is friendly in terms of ease of use but the hooks on the pad have worn down to nothing. The sandpaper simply won't stick. I'm pretty disappointed since I'm in the middle of two projects I'd like to finish up before the rainy season begins. And it's had light use.

I've tried to find a new "interchangeable pad" for the regular tear drop sandpaper but there don't seem to be any. So I'm faced with purchasing another mouse or trying something else. The motor seems fine so I'm reluctant to buy a whole tool when it just needs a $5 part.

Also, the Black and Decker sandpaper wears very quickly. Fortunately, there are other makes of hook and loop sandpaper and these have been much more satisfactory.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for small jobs
Lightweight and versatile little tool.

I concur with all the positive reviews here but must point out that B&D's supplied sandpaper is little use. You'll need a quality brand from Home Depot or the like. Makes short work of any small area. I'd recommend something larger is you do a lot of sanding but this is perfect for most home users.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't like it - velcro wears off and then it's useless
The first mouse I got (as a gift - I asked for it) had its motor go bad after just a few uses. I exchanged it for another. Then on the next one, after just a few uses, the velcro loops are wearing off on the tip, making the sander effectively useless as it now doesn't hold the sandpaper in place. I need to get a new pad with the velcro loops, but you can't get it at any store - I've got to order directly from the manufacturer (haven't tried yet but I have their #).

I'd advise against any sander that uses velcro as an attachment system. I hear that glue & self-stick systems also have problems, but they can't be as bad as making the sander completely useless. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Paper cost exceeds Mouse cost after 5 purchases
I wish I'd read the posts warning about the cost of the paper before I bought the Mouse. It's a very useful little tool, and it's easy to think of uses for it. Unfortunately, each use means a trip to the store for paper or pads. The paper is horribly expensive, and it's not feasible to substitute for it. I've used my Mouse on only about a dozen minor projects over the last year but have easily spent 3X the original cost of the unit on paper and pads.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sander good, paper too expensive and hard to find
This is a useful and well-made sander, but it only uses Black and Decker paper that costs [a lot of money] for 5 sheets (if you can even find the paper - it is here on Amazon.com, but usually is hard to find at a hardware store), making it too expensive to use a lot. Orbital sanders with standard size disks or palm sanders that use 1/4 sheets of regular sandpaper are much more economical - about one tenth the cost. It has performed well the times I used it, but I almost never use it due to the expensive paper (that lasts no longer than other paper - you will use up several sheets on a small project).

5-0 out of 5 stars The Mouse is the best small sander
The Mouse is a great sander for small use. It is easy to switch diffferent grit paper all u have to do is aline the paper to the mouse and press down. I just got it and boy does it do a great job. I love it. I am 14 years old and it is so easy to use it isn't that noisey either. It is the BEST SANDER i ever used. ive used a lot of sander before and this is the one I like. thats why I gave it 5 stars. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Low frills, economical belt sander
Most of the time, I buy the tools that get the best reviews... and when it comes to a router, planer or table saw, that's not a bad idea. In my world, it's unnecessary to apply the same scrutiny to a belt sander - after all, this is not a tool for finish sanding. This is for fast, aggressive removal of material.

To be fair, I am an amateur woodworker restoring a 100-year old house and a belt sander is something I use infrequently at best. For the occasions that I do need one, this does the job more than adequately. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars I wish I'd have bought something else . . .
This was my first electric sander, so I can't compare performance, but I agree with the other reviewers who point out that it doesn't collect dust the way it's supposed to. Despite others' enthusiasm for the hook and loop feature, it didn't turn out to be all it was cracked up to be. If you're doing a bigger project (I was sanding down the wood trim on a window I had stripped) the paper wears out pretty quickly, and they're not exactly cheap. It's better than sanding by hand, but I wish I'd [pulled] it up and spent a little more to get a Bosch or something like that.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best sander on the market
I purchased the sandstorm for my husband, he was thrilled when I showed it to him. Since then he has used it several times and says that it is the nicest sander he has ever owned. The hoop and loop feature is great, it makes changing paper fast and easy. Also, it has very little vibration which makes it more comfortable to use. No more dips in the wood. And now the wood is left much more even. I would highly recommend to any wife buy this one for the husband they will be thrilled.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fell apart within 18 months
Mine fell apart within a yaar and a half, and I haven't bothered to try to get it fixed. Most of the time, it sanded pretty well, and I love the hook and loop. But, this isn't the model to get.
Spend a little more and get a high quality tool. The dust was never collected at all, so it was worthless without a shop vac
attached.

I am finished with Black and Decker tools, I have never had one last more than a couple of years. Spend the money for the better tool, it will make for a better result, and there is nothing more aggravating than having the pad fall off in the middle of your project.
If you are buying a gift for an aspiring woodworker that you love, get a Porter Cable, Makita or DeWalt. Mine was a gift that I was too sappy to return... Now, I am asking for a new Sander for Xmas, think it will be a Porter Cable.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the most versatile sanders out there
This model combines the effectiveness of a random orbit sander with the detailing of sheet and detail sanders at a pretty good price. I found it easy to attach the orbit and detailing pads, and the velcro does a good job at keeping the sanding pads in place.

The only negatives are the sound (it's noisy), the fine detail pad lost its effectiveness quickly due to wear (thankfully, B&D includes several extra detail pads), and most of the dust ends up all over the place instead of in the collection bag. I still recommend keeping some old-fashioned sandpaper or a sanding stick handy for detail areas and hard-to-reach places.

For standard household work, this sander worked well for my most recent sanding project (sanding a window moulding). As I said before, the 3-in-1 features make this a good buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pay a little more and spend less time.
I bought this sander trying to save a little money. It started out working pretty well, but got to the point where it would take a long time to sand and the finish boot broke in half. Black and Decker did replace it, but by that time I was fed up with this sander and had bought another type. It never picked up any dust and performed poorly in a short while. My advise is that if you are doing any type of half-way serious woodworking, then spend a little extra money. You'll be glad you did (and it will cost less) in the long run. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Performance and Good Value
I owned a 10 year old Black and Decker 1/4 sheet palm sander that was very loud, very dusty, and very prone to vibration. I mainly only use my belt sander and random orbital sander anyway, but there are those times when a 1/4 sheet sander is still the best tool for the job. So, I bought this unit as a replacement. First I will start with the good stuff:

1. This sander is a bit quieter than my old one, but not much.

2. The gel-grip design on this sander is fantastic - no more tingly hands after sanding for a long time.

3. The dust collection works decently, and is of course a vast improvement for me since my old sander had no dust collection.

4. It is very affordable!

I guess what I am saying is that for what it is, this is not a bad sander at all.

Now for the few drawbacks...

1. This sander came with a separate plastic jig to use for punching the dust collecting holes into your sandpaper. I really wish there were another way to accomplish this since the jig never seems to be handy and/or where the sander is.

2. Although it IS quieter than my last palm sander, this thing is still uncomfortably loud.

3. The on/off switch is located in a perfect spot, but I wish it were not so recessed. Sometimes I have to fiddle around trying to get the thing on or off.

Overall, I am pleased with the quality of this tool. There are of course nicer sanders on the market but for the price this one cannot be beat! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Black and Decker BR400 Sander I Love It
Rivals any of the more expensive model sanders.

4-0 out of 5 stars I won't lie to ya
This is not a high quality tool, but for someone like me that only uses a belt sander to fix a mistake, it is just fine. I would love to have a bosch, makita or dewalt and those are the sanders I would reccommend for heavy duty use, but I only use mine to strip old or mistake finishes and this tool seems to work just fine. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Polisher!
I recieved this polisher as a gift and could not have been happier. It is easy to use and light enough that most people can reach with it and still maintain control. Although the thought of a cordless unit is nice, I just can't see the same ROI in the long run. I noticed that someone wrote a review stating that the pad blew apart, I luckly had no issues with this being a problem. Besides, it's B&D, they have fantastic service and you can get parts or a replacement unit easily.
It would be nice to have a bigger pad relative to the body width, but with some creativity I have enhanced the diameter and outfitted it with some alternate pads.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lasted about 2 minutes
The machine worked good for about 2 minutes. Then it started making a strange noise and two minutes later, the foam applicator literally disintegrated splattering wax all over the car, including the plastic and the windshield. It may be the provided applicator was defective, but 2 minutes is ridiculous for a brand new product. ... Read more
