This is a great sander! I've used an even smaller sander to get details however it didn't work very well and had to use my hand or even this sander. I like that it bags the dust from sanding. I also like that it is fairly easy to replace the sand paper. There are also a bunch of different kinds of sand paper and you don't have to get the more expensive sticky kind. It isn't as good for big jobs like a belt sander would be however, but for smaller jobs that have not a ton of small detail this would work great. I used it to refurbish a cabinet and it worked just fine. The power on it was great but you do need to apply pressure and apply it evenly or one spot may get sanded more than another. Also you need to move in a circular motion if possible you are able to sand it a lot better if you do this. It is really loud, but I don't know how you can get around that. Be sure to wear some type of ear protection or your ears may ring for a while after using it. The button to turn it on isn't the easiest thing to push but it does work just fine. Maybe that is a safety feature so you don't accidently turn it on or something.
