Over at Home Depot, they have a fantastic deal on this Dewalt cordless 1/4 sheet finish sander kit bundle. I first spotted this in stores, and thanks to Big Richard, we have the elusive link to a similar online deal.

Here’s the promo – buy the Dewalt 20V Max 2Ah battery and charger starter kit, get the cordless finish sander for free.

Basically, you’re getting a 1-battery cordless sander kit for $99.

This is a fantastic deal, especially since other sellers only have the sander on sale for $99 by itself as a bare tool.

The first time I saw this deal in-store, I balked on it. The second time, it was sold out. The third time, I had made up my mind to get it, but didn’t want to carry it around the store. However, I came across an impulse-buy and didn’t remember about the sander until I was already driving to my next destination.

As mentioned in another recent deal post about a similarly priced Dewalt cordless random orbit sander kit deal, I was planning to get the finish sander deal for a younger family member that’s getting deeper into woodworking and furniture refinishing.

I convinced myself a random orbit sander would be better to start out with, but… I went ahead and ordered this kit as well.

There are benefits to having a cordless random orbit sander and a 1/4 sheet finish sander. As with corded sanders, there’s a little bit overlap where either tool can be used, but plenty of times when you might want one style over the other.

I also told myself that this might be a good 3rd party review opportunity.

And, sending them both kits means they’ll have two batteries in case they need longer runtime. Sure, a 5Ah battery might have done the trick too, but the sanders are both a little lighter with a compact battery than a larger and heavier higher capacity battery.

Here’s my point – this is a fantastic deal. If you’re looking for a good cordless sander, this is a great option at an unbeatable value.

With these deals, I find myself asking if I need a new cordless sander. I still prefer corded since I work with dust collection (indoors or close to a door) 95% of the time. These deals are making a very compelling case. While I’m not ready to cut the cord, I might be ready for personal-use cordless sanders (as opposed to test samples).

There’s a good chance these deals will hurt my wallet further. They’re essentially selling a kit for the price of a bare tool.

Part of my motivation behind these deal posts is in knowing that some of you can and probably will take advantage of a deal. This helps to relieve the “this is such a good deal, I can’t pass it up!” mindset. Maybe passing along a good deal triggers a similar feel-good mechanism as when we score a good deal for ourselves? Sorry, I digress.

As I’ve been moving to more outdoors projects, a good cordless sander would be an asset. And, with these being first-ever promos (to my knowledge), there’s no history to be able to better predict if or when similar deals might return in the future.

I’m in the position where I have cordless sanders at my disposal – test samples and the such – but none are *mine.* I’ll give this some thought and let you know what happens.

But I can say that if I didn’t have cordless sanders already at my disposal, there would be zero hesitation, I’d have already ordered both kits for my own use.

If you have to choose…

Part of the reason I would buy both tools is because a lot of work can really benefit from having both at one’s disposal. I ordered both for my family member because I know the projects they’re getting into can benefit from it, and I also know that other family members in the region will have access the tools, and that they’ll be sure to see use.

I keep calling this a finish sander because most 1/4 sheet sanders are less aggressive with respect to material removal. Another benefit is the rectangular shape that can fit into corners with ease, something you can’t really do with a round pad.

If you can’t decide, I think that Acme Tools’ deal on the Dewalt random orbit sander is the better first purchase, and this 1/4 sheet sander a great complement to follow up with. I don’t think I’ve seen deals like this before – the last Dewalt 20V Max random orbit sander deal was a $174 special buy that also included a jig saw. If you don’t know which you want or need, buy one of each.

Note: Since with this deal you’re technically buying a bundle where you get a bare tool, battery, and charger, you’ll need to source your own tool bag or box to keep the sander in. It’s not a big deal, but it seemed worth mentioning.
