Better than I thought
14 Aug 2014
By DIYgr
, BRIDGEND
"Excellent for removing old layers of varnish from areas difficult to get to.
I was a bit apprehensive having read other not so positive reviews but I thought I will give it a go and it worked.
I am not sure about the reliability yet hence the average score.

"I brought this item for striping paint off the side of our bungalow as the paint surface was't very good, water had managed to get the prevouise masonray paint, I was using a wire brush,but this was far to messy, this peice wheelset was very good value, it cut my striping job in half & will be used on other jobs around the garden."

Surface preparation wheel
20 Sep 2012
By Toolshopper
, Kirkcaldy Fife
"Just the very thing when renovating old worn and rusty tools. When fitted into a power drill, this.beast attacks old accumulated rust and muck. It's shape gets the action right into awkward areas like the spaces between the tines of garden forks etc."

good product
27 Aug 2013
By JCMills
, Witney, Oxfordshire
"Used this preparation wheel to remove old paint and rust from from a trailer I bought which requires complete renovation.
Does wear down, but not as quickly as others have suggested. I've done most of the trailer and it's about half the original size having done that.
Will certainly buy another one for future projects!"

Good alternative to a sander
11 Aug 2011
By fincher
, Stroud
"This is a good alternative to a powered sander for the right sort of application, although a drill is more hard to control for sanding/grinding than a belt sander.
But it's a quick fix and might get you out of a hole if you have one in the van."

Good for small jobs
5 Oct 2011
By Tomale01
, Blackpool
"Bought this to help remove paint from Iron Gates in preparation for repainting. The Surface Wheel worked well, but the only complaint I have is that the wheel wore down quicker that I had expected. I suppose that it depends on the size of job you have to do."

Clearly not for all jobs
16 Mar 2011
By DeeAyeWhy
, Edinburgh
"Well, that was a waste of time going to Screwfix and a small amount of money...
Clearly not suitable for the job I'm doing, stripping old layers of paint off a concrete wall. It works, but within 10 minutes I wore the whole thing away, stripping only about a square foot. I’d need at least 10-15 of them, which would get a tad too expensive.
Also a real fiddle fitting the arbor to the disk. Hole not really big enough and off centre..."
