Very sturdy sander
9 Jul 2014
By LargeDona
, County Durham
"Having worn out 2 mouse sanders manufactured by a famous brand in the last two months, I was hoping for something that would last. First impressions are good, excellent results from a sturdy feeling sander, which vibrates far less than my previous ones. The carry bag is a nice accessory, and the replacement sheets are easy to fit. Happy with purchase and customer service at my local Screwfix. All good, long may it last..."

"My builder recommended this - and I'm delighted with it. Easy to use. Good that it takes ordinary sandpaper (so economical). Does the job!"

Palm sander
8 Nov 2012
By Rebat
, Carterton
"This product is well up to the expected standard that is associated with this manufacturer.
It is a light machine that can be used for long periods with no arm or hand strain caused. The bag it comes in is a little too tight a fit for all that it holds but works.
Like all sanders of this type fitting the abrasive paper is a little fiddly but as a plus you can fix either velcro style papers or pieces cut from a sheet or roll.

Great palm sander!

By uszatek78

"Small, smart but powerful.
Easy to control.
You can use ordinary sand paper in roll or ready made ones. Also have got special plate to make holes in ordinary paper.
Very long lead so no need to many extensions.

not a bad bit of kit

"use it for rubbing down before painting, the only negative with it is the paper retaining clips do not hold the paper in place so need to use it with the hook and loop sandpaper"

"Small, light, neat and solid, a little "fiddley" to fit the sand paper sheets but otherwise pleased all round."

Good Sander, But........
24 Oct 2013
By Charley0
, Loughborough
"The sander performed well when using on an old blanket box. I looked at sander after use and could see that the rubber plate on which the sandpaper fits was reduced at one side as I had used it to sand crevices. I thought no problem, I will get a replacement. Unfortunately no replacements are provided by screwfix, or anywhere else. So buyer beware sander is fine but no replacements available. This is one of screwfix's own brands, they need to step up and sort this serious problem out. Is this ethical? If spares available I would not hesitate in giving 5 stars."

Worst Sander Ive ever owned.
16 Jul 2014
By MSB87
, Sheffield
"This is not just the worst sander Ive ever owned its actually the worst power tool ive ever owned.
It just rips apart sandpaper after a few minutes off use.
The clamping design is flawed and just creates 2 contact points on each end resulting in tears .
The punchplate has alignment issues and causes irregular tears.
Im not sure if Im just unlucky and got a dodgy one but a cheap £10 knockoff out performs it.
Its only redeeming feature is it comes in quite a nice bag/case."

By Kedvv

"I bought mine in February 2012 for light DIY use at home. I found it easy to use but it packed up on me in July 2014. So for reliability and value for money , even for light DIY use I can't recommend it. Perhaps I just got a one off?"

light use only
31 May 2014
By tommybuoy

"I would have to not reccommend this product. It worked well at first but after a bit of heavy use died through overheating. The sealing of dust onto the motor brushes is non-existent so I shouldn't expect it to have lasted long. Not a bad price for a light use tool. Handy bag. But the hole punch is useless as is the wrong size for cutting holes in paper for clamping."
