Milwaukee 6021-21 Random Orbit Palm Sander with dust collection bag Review:

The Milwaukee 6021-21 Random Orbit Sander has the feel of a heavy-duty woodworking tool without feeling heavy. The feature set is impressive (as noted above), but probably the most impressive thing I could say about this sander is that I had a difficult time finding any faults with the unit.

In testing the Milwaukee 6021-21, I used some extremely rough-cut lumber, and using a series of progressively finer sanding grits (moving through 50-grit, 80, 120 and 220), in just a few minutes I was able to turn a very rough piece of stock (I actually used a slat from an old pallet) into a smooth, beautiful piece of material that looked like it would belong in any piece of fine furniture.

The other thought that I came away from this review was, after a considerable amount of sanding, my hand didn't really feel like it had been vibrated excessively. This means that the sander can be used for longer periods of time with less fatigue.

After completing the testing of this sander, I checked the price of the unit online and was pleasantly surprised. I expected to see a higher price point for the features and performance of this sander. All in all, based on the price point, I thought the Milwaukee 6021-21 represents an excellent value.


  • Very Quiet
