I'd forgotten about the bag - a plastic case would be nicer though - and a bit more sturdy
Intricate areas? Is this ok for long and boring skirting boards?
I bought one in black friday deals week £13.99 very handy little sander heat from me
Not a bad price. (chart doesn't track brief price reductions such as black Friday)

Mine lasted about 12 m of very intermittent use before it packed in .
had a couple of these tear drop Sanders but the Velcro just doesn't last IMO, tbf tho they was getting trade use, but a traditional clip on with sand paper is just more economical, still a good price for the diyers out there

Yep, B&D stuff pretty poor these days. I replaced mine with a WORX equivalent which is much more effective and is still going several years later. Came in a nice case with room for accessories too.

Similar to this but I'm sure it can be got much cheaper by searching/waiting.

These are poor quality - pretty much disposable as the velcro perishes and the base plastic rubs away - but for the price, why not - you could get a few good jobs out of this kit before having to but another

Yeah same here. Wouldn't buy again or recommend.

You were probably applying pressure rather than letting it use its own friction. It will have burnt out when it couldn't move freely.
Broke 2 of them, treat as disposable then fine but not as a handy tool to last.
Great little sander.

I bought it it £10 on Amazon prime day and it's been a great little machine.

I had one of these, thought it was brilliant but loaned it to my dad who burnt out the motor

Prior to this I had been using it to sand down poly filler in my house and a variety of other exciting sanding duties - I honestly have no idea what dad did with it to kill it lol.

It definitely beat hand sanding the entire blooming house.

Mines lashed in a 10p Aldi bag for life under the stairs
Rubbish these things fail after a short time. Also had a B&D drill fail in a couple of months. Cheap junk, save up and buy yourself a DeWalt or Makita.

​I just cut a hole in the skirting board and put a sardine can in there for it to sleep on...

these are really only designed for sanding wood and such like. not for plaster jobs. the plaster dust gets into the motor and somehow fuses with the mechanism. heats up and burns out the motor. i know. i used it for sanding plaster and noticed a burning smell coming from the mouse. i took the mouse apart and found the plaster had hardened to the motor and was overheating the machine. i cleaned it out and now only use it for sanding wood. it lasts forever if you you use it for what it was designed for, small jobs like skirting, doors and other wood furniture.

Fair enough I think he was sanding a door when it died, perhaps it was running on borrowed time.

Oh well, it did what I needed it to at the time!
I don't know if I already have an unused one in the garage from last time it was on offer... No chance of finding it as it looks like a teenagers bedroom.

Shall I just buy another?
Ordered - thanks!
