Sander tastic
15 Oct 2014
By

"This works great , bought it to sand down some plaster filler where I've put a patch on a gyp wall , got a faultless finish in seconds , this thing is going to save my knuckles and lots of time , wish I'd bought one ages ago rather than using the same cork sanding block for years"

Just the job

"Much better than a sanding block as you don't have to grip it by the sides. Means you don't get barked knuckles and the length gives a good even action ironing out the bumps."

All that wasted time
29 Aug 2014

"Wish I had spotted these before. They take all the effort out of rubbing down windows, and, whilst they wing nuts can be a bit fiddly they certainly hold the paper in place. Excellent product and a real time saver."

Good robust sander
27 Jun 2014
By
, Portsmouth
"Very impressed with how easy it was to firmly attach the paper and use. The slight fiddly wing-nuts are more than compensated for by how well it grips the paper compared to quick release systems I have used in the past. Powered through the work with comfort far superior to conventional sanding blocks.
Well worth the extra cost :)"

Perfect bit of kit
21 Mar 2014
By
, Inverclyde
"I have a few old cork sanding blocks that will never see day light again. This is so much better. If you use poor quality sand paper that clogs quickly it will be a pain to swap out the paper as its a bit fiddly with the wing nuts and retaining brackets / clamps.
I was using some old inexpensive paper to begin with, with poor results, I changed the paper to Oakey liberty green
and BOOM
This hand sander became a monster and chewed through the work.
I am not promoting Oakey sandpaper products, I am sure any quality paper will do just as well, just don’t use the cheap stuff.
It will clog and you will loose any time you gained swapping out the paper and loose confidence in the sander"

Basic tool but a must-have
8 Apr 2012
By
, Liverpool
"This sander may look very basic -- and it is -- but it is a favourite of mine that gets much use and does a great job. I particularly like to use it for smoothing plaster repairs, when an orbital sander would make much more dust and be less easy to control"

Looks (and is) cheap but works
23 Apr 2014
By
, London
"I bought it because of all the good reviews here. After unpacking it I wasn't sure about the longevity of the clamps but they work and the whole tool is just perfect.
I had to cut sanding paper from a roll to size as it's normally wider than the tool is but that's also no problem.

One is not enough
16 Nov 2013
By
, West Yorks
"I've always found hand sanding to be hard work. Orbital sanders are noisy and unproductive. Belt sanders get the job done but can be aggressive, not leaving a truly flat surface.
This simple tool enables you to get the great results of hand sanding in a fraction of the time.
It would be better if the clamps were quick release. I spend as much time changing grade as I do sanding but for the price I will probably buy a couple more so I can have one dedicated to each grade.
