Smooth as silk. Began with 150 grain up to 1200 grain. Best bench top ever.
This is my second Makita sander--my first is over 10 years old and going strong--they are both much better built then the Sears sanders I had purchased in the past and wore out. I bought this one for my daughter but it is so quiet I will have to keep it and buy her another.
make it a Makita
Quiet and almost vibration free.
I had a similar sander, another brand for 20+ years, don't like random orbit sanders, this one I like.
