Big fan of random orbit sanders. Use them for work. Always found the 125mm a bit small. But good price. Always found the base pads wear out. May be spending a fiver on one of these. Much cheaper than replacing the base platehttps://www.restexpress.co.uk/acatalog/Mirka_Pad_Protector.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw0oveBRAmEiwAzf6_rCv6Kc-ZdEsDfitH59krqiFVQLCFOtgJMI_GVKYxWZWxjgknzABf-xoCIgYQAvD_BwE
Bought this and it broke within a couple weeks with the discs now flying off
The two things that put me off this sander is only one speed and I don’t find a palm sander that comfortable to use. Good price though for Bosch but sorry not for me...
I know this won't do the job, but which sander should I go for to sand my engineered wood flooring?
looking at the other new prices I would imagine the rrp for that is inflated
Does the job, good to have
The Black & Decker one is horrible to use as it vibrates too much. I know that sounds silly, but my hands feel horrible after using one for more than a few minutes. One might hope that the Bosch has a nicer action, though I haven't used one myself.
This not better deal? https://www.amazon.co.uk/BLACK-DECKER-KA161BC-Detail-Accessories/dp/B001G7PR3Q/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1538993324&sr=8-8&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=Bosch+PSM+100&dpPl=1&dpID=51tCDYnqS-L&ref=plSrch
Currently restoring an old kitchen, used this tool solidly for two days on the walls and ceiling - I've got to say I'm really impressed with it, leaves a nice finish and is easy to use. The old spare Henry I had on dust extraction duties didn't fare so well, it released the magic smoke on the second day.
Yes it seems that Aldi are a little slow on updating their own website with the locations of their own stores ! It maybe this is an opening offer which isn't going to be available in others in the UK.
Still no listing! ALDI - 1-4 London Road Brighton BN1 4JA ALDI - Carlton Terrace Portslade, Brighton BN41 1XF ALDI - Brooks Road Lewes BN7 2BY ALDI - Unit 3 Manor Retail Park Rustington BN16 3FH ALDI - 55 Lottbridge Drove Eastbourne BN22 9AA
These velcro ones are a pita.
That'll be the display one!
If the Wickes stock checker says 1 in stock just assume its actually 0. Wickes always seem to have 1 less item in stock than the checker states.
Halfway their already then (lol) been 40mins since this post lol
Nearest to me: 64 miles to Dunstable.
I think that new 20v batteries from workzone will fit without other brands without any change.
I'm quite sure that there will be no indicator. 1.5 Amp batteries are mostly without indicator. I have same sds hammer drill as you, for 28 with one battery. 18v workzone battery suits my Worx tools, but impact driver is not working on that battery, propably low power. Hammer drill working fine. To use Worx 20v batteries on Workzone hammer drill you have to cut small pin on battery mount or on battery, easy job, working fine.
You could just buy a cheap multimeter. If it's 21v it's totally full (5*4.2v) if it's totally empty it will be 14v (5*2.8v). So 25% will be about 16v, 50% about 18v and 75% about 19.5v. Ideally you want to keep it in the 15v-20v range so don't store it empty or full.
is that for all of them listed? any experience yourself? I have the sds that went on sale for £28 its amazing for the price but no battery life indicator is killing me never know whether to charge it or leave it in my bag...considering another tool that comes with a battery if its for a good price and has an indicator.
Batteries are same but sometime you have to cut small plastic pin to mix them.
Just returned it after trying in vain to sand anything with it. The sheets come lose instantly and it's completely useless.
Tested today and yea... Its effective but the sheets to slip a little but the result was great for 10 quid.
Just go on toolstation app ,you can order from there, 10 plus is free delivery if not local to a store
Hi Have you got Make or product code ,looking for more info or a item number for your Toolstation sanding sheets
Reserved one... thanks
Just borrowed one of these, within 10 minutes of sanding a door frame a bright flash-bang came from inside, dramatically dying in my hand with a horrible burning smell. Here begrudgingly as I kind of have a duty to replace it. (mad)
The price has now gone up from Amazon as seller to £24.99 but is available cheaper from other sellers including a dodgy looking Chinese one for £14.99. How would this compare with the Aldi one currently in store at £19.99: https://www.aldi.co.uk/workzone-220w-multi-sander/p/078469216369400 Or the Ozito one from Homebase for £10: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ozito-180w-detail-sander-with-20-sanding-sheets-10-homebase-3043695 Both the above have 3 year warranty but is there anything the B&D one does that these don't?
Hi. I have one of these and yes it vibrates like crazy and is therefore uncomfortable to use but I have used it quite a lot for sanding multiple sets of alloy wheels before repainting and for stripping paint off wooden doors. Mine doesn't get warm at all even after hours of constant use. I feel like I have had more than £20 service out of mine.
Thanks, and you. All the best. (y)
One of the best little sanders money can buy. Used daily as i am a chippy.
Sincerest apologies, still in stock in local stores (Norwich and Dereham); else I wouldn't have bothered commenting if I were referring to a product that I knew was no longer in stock. (y)
I'm renovating a house where the walls haven't been touched in 40 years. Striped the wallpaper to reveal a single cost of emulsion. Problem is the emulsion flakes off in some places and sticks day in others leaving a very patchy surface. Would this sort it out?
Sanding diameter of the Aldi model is 180mm, vs 225mm on the Lidl, so quite different in that respect too (it'll take longer, and it'll be harder to ensure level of a particular area with the smaller diameter)
I think so.
https://www.screwfix.com/p/energer-enb623sdr-sheet-sander-230-240v/3348g This is always cheaper, has slightly larger (more standard?) sanding sheets, smaller footprint, provides a slot to take a variety of vacuum hoses so you actually collect the dust - crappy bags which come with mitre saws etc DO NOT work. Also 80 and 100 grit sheets? Why bother? 120 would be the coarsest I'd finish on (for rough timber, I start with 40 or 60 or you'll be there all day at 80 and use far more sheets than you need)
I thought the rule was buy cheap then if you use it enough for it to break buy expensive? Personally I need a sander for a one-off job so this would be perfect and far cheaper than buying all the dremel attachments I'd need to do the same job with my existing tool.
Had one of these about 2 years. Used it quite a lot today as it happens. Works well! I buy 10pks of 1/2 sheet sandpaper (hook and loop) from Toolstation for £3-summit and cut then in half so I have 20. They're great for it. If you don't get the hook and loop ones it's useless as clamping the paper isn't great and it'll rip. Edit: here's the link https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Power+Tool+Accessories/d80/Power+Sanding/sd1790/Sanding+Sheet+115+x+230mm/p51252. They do different grit. You can also buy a silverlkne selection of grits as a pack from Amazon
Thanks, forgot to include that it comes with a 2 year guarantee (y)
Had 2 of these and didn't last long. Bought a cheap Titan one from Screwfix. Much more robust.
I have one of these and use it almost every day for sanding hardwood such as Oak, Walnut etc. I have it on for around 20 minute bursts and it has never faltered. Some people burn these out by blocking the holes underneath by holing it down in one area for too long, or by missaligning "compatible" sanding pads, so they don't line up with the holes properly. The main reason why a sander will fail is due to the user applying too much pressure, which results in small circles appearing on the wood and excessive strain on the motor. All that is required is the weight of the hand resting on the sander. It could be a bit more ergonomic in that it is easy to turn off as the hand wants to hold the front of it on occasion. Overall a good piece of kit.
People complaining about it burning out, of course it will if you apply too much pressure, particularly uneven pressure. Use it properly and it will last for years.
Bought two years ago and both burnt out with 20 minutes each, buy Bosch instead
I used to have one of these. Good price at £20 but the sander itself is much less useful that you'd think it would be. Alot of the weight is at the top of the device, the shape of it doesn't make it easy to grip / manoeuver for detail work, you burn through key spots on the tip of the glasspaper almost immediately etc. Nice idea in theory but the execution is lacking.
Tip - not sure its precise size, but probably the triangular form - so will be able to pick up 10 sanding sheets for c£1.30 at Toolstation eg look for product code 16531 and then various other grit grades there.
reviews are not good. Might be of use for very light jobs, but seemingly not much more.
I have a hand tool that I use regularly for that (highfive)
I could do with something to sand the callouses off my palms
Link doesn’t work for me..page not found
I was commenting on the poor results, for a detail sander. I hope the belt sander is better fit to function.
A detail sander is just that. For small bits that are difficult to access. They’re not made to sand full planks of wood lol. it goes like this with sanders and strength; detail sander (vibration) orbital sander belt sander
I hope this one works a heck of a lot better than the detail sander that I bought from Lidl, it should do being of higher wattage and mains operated and of a different format. I decided to keep the detail sander for polishing things with a custom polishing pad that I made and hole punched and Velcroed to match the base, and another custom pad to help with my lower back pain! As a sander, as a detail sander, it was very poor, though in fairness I didn't necessarily expect much at the price, you often get what you pay for with power tools, but I was disappointed. If anyone has reviews of this one, though, I would still be glad to see them.
Bought one last year. Used for about 10 min and belt stopped spining but motor still turns. Will get one again as very usefull tool.
Great spot! Here's the link.
Tip: Still using an Aldi/Lidl detail sander from c10 years ago - for spare/replacement sanding checkout Toolstation for "Detail Sanding Sheets 140mm" - packs of 10 for c£1.29 in various grades eg code 16531 !
Agree about Silverline (excited) I bought a "Replacement pressure washer hose" from them once, it was little more than a weird nylon type thing (like a 'hollow rope') surrounded by some C-shaped plastic about as thick as some blister pack packaging. Kinked/burst within about 20 seconds, sent it back asking for a refund, they sent a replacement, that kinked/burst, rinse and repeat. Don't touch their rubbish with a barge pole. (y)
Can't go wrong with aldi excellent 3 year warranty.My last 2 mouse sanders, black and decker and silver line both packed in after 14 months so will be buying this !
Thanks, might give it a try
the spin speed is slower than a standard sander it might work when you use suction with it as it kind of pulls it down a bit
Anyone know if you could use this to lightly sand a wooden floor.
anyone close to Telford. the new town centre store has 5 left at £7.50
It had been £29.99 for about a week in the Cockermouth store, I nearly got one them - these seem to be over £100+ everywhere, so I reckon anyone paying from £14.99 to £49.99 is doing well very. I'd been for a run along the river, and didn't really expect to have to walk back home with this, but couldn't resist as £14.99 - as you say, the box is pretty hefty!
my wife says the same thing about her rabbit
Looked at these yesterday but the only problem is not variable speed - which I feel is a must for a sander
That random orbital sander is *very* cheap. If it's any good, it's a total steal for this price. I disagree. IMHO if anything, the reverse is true.
Bump. Just a reminder, this is available tomorrow (Thursday 26th)
No. Just the right tool for the right job.
So everyone needs both ?? Why do they sell 220 grit for belt sanders ?
It’s not really yes and no... they are quite simply two tools for completely different jobs. Even a 24 grit on a random orbital will remove nothing like the material a belt sander will and it isn’t meant to.. belt sander then random orbital for finishing.. as they are designed for.
An alrternative is the 9911 which is currently £50 in Wickes for the 240v https://www.wickes.co.uk/Makita-9911-76-x-457mm-Belt-Sander-240V---650W/p/104172
I have both an orbital and this belt sander. Orbital for small areas is fine but the belt sander is way faster for large areas...
How much sandpaper does it come with? Do you have to buy specific branded stuff (presumably over priced) or can you use anything
These are awesome, currently renovating my house and this has been the best £s spent on a tool! Used it on all the old woodwork and on walls, which were knackered too. I don't buy OEM Bosch sanding pads, I use the ones from Aldi/Lidl and have just bought a set from my local Bunnings which are well priced.
Looks like I was wrong ( to a point ) as the mobile app doesn’t give the free delivery option - sneaky amazon. Anyways I stand corrected (highfive)
Ok I’m using a mobile and non prime account and it only gives the option to pay postage or sign up for a free 30 day trial. Maybe it’s on desktop only, Mods should confirm shortly (y)
Assuming it’s the full width of the door then whilst it’ll do it’ it’ll take a bit of time and effort, you are also likely to use quite a few sanding sheets - in short yes it will do it but you’d be better off using a planer and using the sander to give a smooth finish.
This any good to shave a couple of mm of the bottom of a door
Should have voted hot caught the wrong one with my clumsy thumb ;( ;(
If you wanna take my comment seriously feel free
Danny that is fraudulent, stingy and immoral behavior that drives up the cost of shopping for everyone else as does theft.
Over priced even at 30 quid,A garbage range of power tools, Using the word 'Power', Very lightly.
I wouldnt recommend the mouse Sander. I got one from asda for £15 at clearance but it fell to bits after 3 days of use.
The mouse sander shows up on the ASDA groceries app.
