DEWALT’s 5-inch random orbit sander cuts down on vibration at Amazon low of $49 (Reg. $65)

Reg. $65 $49

Amazon is offering the DEWALT 5-inch Random Orbit Sander (DWE6421K) for $48.96 shipped. For comparison, you’d pay $65 from both Lowe’s and Home Depot for this same sander, with today’s deal marking a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. If you’re working on any wood-related projects this fall, then a quality sander is a must-have. As someone with a more entry-level random orbit sander currently, I jumped on this deal as soon as it came available. The powerful 3A motor features a 12,000 orbit per minute speed and the separate counterweight design helps cut down on vibrations for a more comfortable experience. There’s also a built-in dust port to help capture fine particles created while sanding, and the plug-in design means you won’t ever have to swap a battery mid-project. Rated 4.6/5 stars at Lowe’s.

Update 10/27 @ 2:57 PM: Lowe’s is offering the DEWALT 20V Cordless Brushless 5-inch Random Orbital Sander Kit for $99 shipped. Normally $199, you’d pay $139 for the tool alone at Lowe’s right now with today’s deal saving you 50% from its regular going rate.

Update 10/25 @ 2:55 PM: Home Depot is offering the DEWALT ATOMIC 20V MAX Cordless Brushless 4.5-inch Circular Saw for $99 shipped. Down from $149, this is a 34% discount from its normal going rate and marks one of the best prices that we’ve tracked. Rated 4.7/5 stars from Home Depot customers.

While you might think any sandpaper will do, that’s just not the case. I started out a low-cost pack of sandpaper, but quickly realized that it was taking far too long to complete projects. Well, after finding 3M Cubitron II, that changed the game. This multi-pack includes three sheets each of 80, 120, 150, 180, and 220 grit, the perfect progression for most projects. Plus, it’s just $7.50, making it a no brainer add-on to today’s lead deal.

Many of the discounts are still live, so you’ll find quite a few different ways to save still. Plus, it expands your DIY abilities without breaking the bank.
