The SKIL 7492-02 is a Skil orbital sander With Pressure Control and several other features that are unique to the Skil range of orbital sanders. When we started reviewing the various orbital sanders on the market, [Skil] ( was one brand we had yet to hear of. However, after reviewing the 7492-02 orbital sander from Skil, we found that they are a very notable producer of power tools. This orbital sander, in particular, is a very high-quality device.

Pressure Control Technology

The Skil orbital sander is the first device that we have come across that features a visual warning system for pressure control. This works via an indicator on the side of the device, which lights up when too much pressure is applied. Skil clearly understands that applying too much pressure to an orbital sander can result in uneven surfaces and, at worst, gauges being created on the surface that is being sanded. Although we have tested similar models to this one – [this Skil palm sander being a perfect example] ( -orbit-sander /) – We have not seen the pressure control indicator until now. We found the pressure control is a great way to ensure that you are not putting too much pressure on the surface as you are sanding and is a really great feature, especially if you are [sanding softer surfaces such as plaster where applying the right amount of pressure is very important] (

Random Orbit Action

The Skil orbital sander features random orbit technology, ensuring that the device is always spinning in a random fashion. This not only helps to avoid any spin marks on the sanded surface but also makes the sanding process fast and efficient, ensuring all areas are covered with equal force.


The Skil random orbit sander comes with a dust collection unit that is easy to remove with a simple twisting action. It also features a micro-filtration system that captures even the finest of dust particles.

Why Buy It?

Even if out of production, it remains an extremely valid orbital, and it can happen to find it at a strong discount. In that case, it becomes a perfect purchase and a trusted ally for the next few years.

Why not buy It?

Because it is out of production and the models that replace it are better while maintaining the usual price range. It shouldn’t break, but it won’t be easy to find spare parts if it does.
