Super machine

" What's in the box ? You get the sander, a brief but easy to follow manual, a dust extractor adaptor for use with vacuum style dust extractor/vacuum cleaner or you can use the supplied but small dust bag to collect the dust but this needs frequent emptying. The dust extraction port is positioned on the side rather than the back of the machine and the dust extractor adaptor is angled keeping any connected hose out of the way of the machine when in use. You also get a sanding disc and a hole punch for making holes in 125mm non-punched discs. I recommend only using the punch if you absolutely have too, far better to buy ready punched discs! The sanding unit itself is well designed and compact. The air vents are sensibly placed where your fingers are not blocking them and the machine is comfortable to hold. There is a small green light to indicate power is on and the power cable is a good length and of course you get a fitted 13amp plug. You have a choice of speeds that can be altered with a simple thumbwheel between minus and plus but use of the machine will teach you the best position for the type of wood you are working with and the type of finish you require. The machine is noisey and takes some controlling, as with most sanders of this type, but the results are impressive! A professional tool in use and design and I would recommend it to all. "

Design flawed switch....
20 Oct 2011

" I had 2 of these, the first for 9 days the 2nd for 3 days. The same fault developed each time. The on/off switch started off fine then became stiff, then so stiff a screw driver was needed to operate and then ceased permanently. Ive swapped out for the much cheaper (by £30) Erbauer model, the quality looks just as good or better, has a case and has a dust proof push on, push off switch. Hopefully it will last a bit longer.... "
