lmfao - i will be believ you just this once

You need a ]detail sander or a ]mouse type sander.
(Sorry can't post pictures - so linked a couple of examples).
My wife liked her mouse and they work quite well; but as you can only use them one-handed you you can only do so much at a time. Detail sanders can be used two-handed, but I think are trickier to use.
Go to the DIY store and see what you feel comfortable holding.

Oh dear I answered the question and darn I'm still at work ... must go home...

Try that.

looks small enough to sand the skirting

NO me being serious,[SIZE="5"] WEAR A MASK !! OR ELSE !![/SIZE]

Nitromoors is viscious stuff !! Nasty but effective usually.
If it's that thick though I would be using a steel wire drill attachment. Will save you acres of time. Poundland usually sell them.

I have used nitramors beofre, so im ok with that, i will be painting it once i have finished just want a better result than i would get if i had just given it a quick rub

Ah I see , thought you were taking it back to bare wood.

For future reference thought this is the thing that will save you loads of time with thick paint. Quite brutal though, lol

well it will probably not be the nicest of woods, so just want to get a smoother finish, although if you have seen me decorate you will see why it really is a waste of time, i may as well just glob it over whats there:oops:

I had to take my house alarm off the wall today to strip behind it, i managed to get it off and strip behind it, without sirens going off - lol, only to fnd when i come to put it back up that the holes had crumbled, its now hanging on wall by three very loose screws as the fouth had completely crumbled, im dreading it falling of the wall, it will disturb half of shrewsbury if it goes off- lol

I used one of those hot air blower things once (trying to help out Hubby) and set the carpet on fire! So, no help what so ever in the end! :oops:

Let us know how you get on.

It'll take forever to sand down skirting with a detail sander. If the skirting is quite tall (greater than 10cm), then use a sheet sander or better still, a belt sander.

be careful if you use a heat blower scorching the wood isn't recommended, and hot paint missing your glove and going on your wrist hurts...make sure if sanding you start with rougher paper and work down to smoother to get a nice finish.
