Black & Decker Mouse Sander @ Argos £14.99 RRP £29.99

Found 20th Nov 2014
Black & Decker mouse detail sander. Excellent reviews. Comes with loads of extras, including sanding sheets. Extra offer of half price sanding sheets when you purchase a sander. I was going to buy this yesterday when it was £19.99, glad I waited.

The sander is also available on amazon for £14.99 so could be more convenient for some but it does not come with the sanding sheets offer.

Support the taxman and buy from Argos.





Even though I would probably buy it from Amazon as the queues in Argos this time of year are worse than doing community service.

here is a tip


the replacement paper for this is stupid expensive, just because of the shape and the velcro on the back. when you run out keep the worn pads and superglue cheaper sandpaper onto the pad then simply trim round the original shape. job done

you have to be nowadays lol. especially with this because tbh the sandpaper you get with this isnt the heavy duty stuff its for more delicate work.

I think your better off getting a sonicrafter

Sounds a bit cruel to me sanding a mouse.

Get the sandpaper from toolstation, non branded and cheap Velcro backed.

£50 for a wired one, use it enough and it should work out cheaper than the mouse and have more uses.

This is better, free delivery for same price,,,,, bought ..... many thanks

don't forget to buy the sanding paper from tool station or similar store, you'll spend 5-10x more in homebase or argos

Hi All,
My friend about to buy a house which they say is Solid OAK flooring , and in the survey its saying Suspended Timber floaring. Not sure both same ? , but can we use this to sand both these type of floors ?

1. WTF(why) do you want to sand solid oak floor? 2. You'll be doing for about 3 years. Get an industrial sander for the day. Then man up.

surely in the 21st century we have moved on from animal cruelty - cold for me

Great answer, but still not complete , if its Suspended Timber flooring , can we use this ? its not for sanding the shole surface , just to remove stains in most places. I understand its not easy doing with this one for the whole floor.

Sorry I had 2 of these before requesting a full refund, 2 fell apart in my hands...... literally went to pieces after about half a day of sanding gloss paint. Personal experience I stay well clear of B&D.

pays for this 30 quid in bnq few months ago. As for paper I bought it cheap from Wilkinson. square ones and just used them. You can buy a roll from eBay and trim it.

Goddamit ....as the man says man the flick up and grip that sandpaper (that you buy In sheets) and get a block of wood or BARE hands and get to it......Rough em up boys ......The Callouses this will leave on your hands will have the wife/gf/bf ......Begging for a rub down everyday........ ;).

Great! Was looking to buy this when it was £20. So now £15, have ordered!

Only if you have a LOT of time and an enormous stack of sandpaper!

No, it's for small jobs, eg maybe sanding the skirting for painting, it's not for doing whole hardwood floors. Hire a proper machine for that.

I have been using one for over three years without any problem, though I haven't got hands like a gorilla

Superglue isn't exactly cheap!
Just buy similar unbranded. Recently picked up a big pack (about 40 sheets I think) for £3.99 in Lidl.

But B&D really aren't that good these days: tend to be budget quality at branded price.

I have hands liek a donkey :D.

white finger du dur du. worst sander I have ever used unless you dont want to feel your fingers for the next week. £12 parkside one from lidl ( yes lidl) works a lot better and gives less vibration to your hands.

I got this when it was on the daily deal at Amazon for £13 and having done a bit of work with it now, I would say this is very good value for money. Handy tool to have for the occasional use.

These are brilliant, I used one to remove ivy tendrils from an external wall. They're ace.

Got a link?

The one in Lidl is probably better than this. I had this and it packed up so picked one up in Lidl for 12.99. They have packs of 30 odd sanding sheets for 2.99 as well.

so that's a lidl mouse sander...

...Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murd'ring pattle!

I'm truly sorry man's dominion,
Has broken nature's social union,
An' justifies that ill opinion,
Which makes thee startle
At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,
An' fellow-mortal!

I doubt na, whiles, but thou may thieve;
What then? poor beastie, thou maun live!
A daimen icker in a thrave
'S a sma' request;
I'll get a blessin wi' the lave,
An' never miss't!

Thy wee bit housie, too, in ruin!
It's silly wa's the win's are strewin!
An' naething, now, to big a new ane,
O' foggage green!
An' bleak December's winds ensuin,
Baith snell an' keen!

Thou saw the fields laid bare an' waste,
An' weary winter comin fast,
An' cozie here, beneath the blast,
Thou thought to dwell -
Till crash! the cruel coulter past
Out thro' thy cell.

That wee bit heap o' leaves an' stibble,
Has cost thee mony a weary nibble!
Now thou's turn'd out, for a' thy trouble,
But house or hald,
To thole the winter's sleety dribble,
An' cranreuch cauld!

But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!

Still thou art blest, compar'd wi' me
The present only toucheth thee:
But, Och! I backward cast my e'e.
On prospects drear!
An' forward, tho' I canna see,
I guess an' fear!

It is still a better sander than the Black n Decker one and 30 sheets of assorted sand papers for £3 makes it a very good buy.
The 3 year warranty says it all really.
