The following article may or may not be a review of the Black & Decker KA175 Sander but is intended to be an info article with further description, photographs and technical specifications as provided by the manufacturer.
I bought the Black & Decker KA175 Sander at the same time as the Black & Decker KS630 Jigsaw. This was during the time of my life when I thought I was heading towards some serious woodworking tasks of building a home-made ecosystem for some small animals.
It didn’t turn out to be as serious as I had expected, but this sander was put through its paces often enough to eventually justify its purchase.
It has been used to sand down on parquet wooden flooring, to smoothen timber and countertops, and various other woodwork jobs over the years, especially for large surface area work. It takes away the pain and labour associated with manual sanding.
The Black & Decker KA175 Sander comes with an exhaust port on the rear with a detachable adaptor which can be attached to a vacuum system for reduced dust in the working environment.
It uses sandpaper at one-third the size of A4 sandpapers, so getting replacements for this consumable is quite easy. For smaller surface areas and for cordless convenience, I usually depend on the 12V lithium-ion powered Milwaukee M12 Multi-Tool.
