Inline sander

I need a new inline sander and would like to get some opinions about features I should get and over all quality. I'll probably get it mail order because the auto parts around me have none on display. Its been a while since I've had to buy one. Thanks!

Don't be tempted by the price of the one at Harbor Freight that is one of the items they have that is so poorly made that it would not be worth taking home if it was free. If you can spend around $200 or so then the Hutchins Hustler is about the best thing on the market and definitely worth the cost in more ways than just dependability.

I have the Hutchins and I prefer its shape to the Mac and imitation Macs as far as grasping it goes. Performance has been very good. Only thing is that the screws vibrated loose and I lost a couple.

If you can find one,(maybe EBAY or an estate sale)try this. I have my dad's Chicago Pneumatic AKA CP. It is at least 35 years old and has been maintained religiously, even though it doesn't look like it! I love it, but it is a bit heavy. They really built tools in those days. The next one I buy will be a Hustler. I have a Hutchins palm DA that is smoother than smooth. Just like others have said, cheap is just that, cheap. My 2 cents.

sander

Hutchins all the way. I have a 40 year old IR American made in line sander that won't wear out. A Hutchins will replace it someday. I have a Hutchins DA it is the best.

Agree Hutchins, has a speed control can be run without stalling, loads of torque, does not buzz. Very nice machine
