"I bought this sanding kit to try - not expecting much but it's actually very good. I'm not sure why people have had sleeves slipping? As long as you tighten them up well they stay in place fine. The sleeves last well too if used properly."
"Great value compared to other drum sanding kits I have seen. I use mine in my pillar drill at high speed and use it mainly on wood for obtaining a smooth finish on various timber profiles and cut outs."
"Wanted to purchase a flap wheel that i had used before but was out of stock then found this piece of kit read all the reviews which where all very complimentary except one which mentioned it was difficult to get replacement sleeves but at the price of the whole kit may as well buy another one."
"I only wanted the smallest drum for a special one off project but I am glad I bought the kit as it has come in handy for other projects well worth the money. and if you search the internet you can source replacment sanding belts."
"Bought this bit of kit after visiting the "local diy" centre and refusing to pay almost fifteen quid for a single flap wheel. Well I have found this absolutely fantastic. You will not be disappointed. It has a selection of 5 different size rubber wheels and 20 different sand paper "tubes" which you tighten onto the wheel with a spanner. I have used just one which has been more than enough for the job and for the money you cant go wrong..."
"I bought this for a particular job which it did with consummate ease. This is cheap enough not to worry about the problem of not being able to obtain spare belts, although to be fair, they last a long time. This is money very well spent."
"This really is the tool that you should buy! It works brilliantly and is very good value! This kit has a million uses which you never imagined until you have one - then so many tricky jobs become simple. Although easy to set up, you can download instructions from the Screwfix page."
"I needed a tool to finish off plaster work on building some extensions to ceiling, gyproc covings. I looked in all the usual DIY places, feeling that a small sanding drum would be ideal, but to no avail. Finally I found one (a whole kit!!!) on the Screwfix website, but I didn't expect it to be much good, looking at the price. It was delivered next day! And how wrong I was! Perfect for the job. It's a pity the kit didn't also include a nice little Bosch cordless drill... but for the price, what could I expect? My only concern is the acquisition of replacement sanding papers. Perhaps I'll just have to buy another kit ! It'd be worth it!"
"bought this set for a project thinking i could just throw them away when im done. finished the project and the kit is still going strong, can be awkward tightening the band on the larger pieces but not really a problem, just have to adjust the band every now and again"
"i have just bought this item to sand a project at home and didnt want to spend a lot of money i thought one use and throw away how wrong was i. it is a brilliant bit of kit worth three or four times what you will pay. if you make your own jig to use with pillar drill you will be very surprised how good it is."
