"When I first started using it i thought this is amazing it makes a few minutes work of what would normally take a hour and there was little or no sanding to do after with sanding paper . But when i realized how fast the thing was wearing away I became very disappointed . I got approximately 1 hours of use out of it before i got to the bare metal ."
"Takes off dried varnish and paint pretty well; and good for awkward channels and similar; but clogs up too easily if the surface is dirty or greasy (as old varnish often is); and performance declines markedly as diameter reduces through wear. The price has gone up quite quickly recently; and it must be judged in this light as well as performance. It is a struggle to justify the expense; but I haven't yet found an alternative that does the job similarly. At £6, it would be a great piece of kit; but at £14 it barely makes the grade."
