I am hopeless at DIY (yes that too!) and didn't know my file from my orbital sander. Trouble was, I was desperate to create some plinths in hard wood to display my plastic battleships and submarines and so on. I found a wood yard that would supply cherry but the width was a bit narrow. I then decided to employ wood glue and glue thee planks side by side, then route them with my fabulous Mac All-star router and finally sand them down. I found a fabulous clamp in B&Q which was just wide enough unlike my old G clamp. As there are two pieces of wood in order to get a good finish one needs careful yet sometimes extensive sanding in order to bring about the quality finish that one needs.
After reading reviews on B&Q I decided to go for the JCB orbital sander. My local store had one , the last one, in stock but the box was open and a bit bedraggled. I saw that this one was available, had similar specs to the JCB and also was a bit cheaper. I also liked the idea of the handle at the front as I am a weedy chap who isn't very strong I thought this would give me something to cling to as it whizzed away.
All in all I am delighted. It's easy use quiet enough though I always use ear plugs, goggles and a mask and it's powerful and also adjustable so that I can rev it up, select a coarser sandpaper when there's serious sanding to be done.
I bought the wrong discs to go with it and these were all that my local store had but they took them back without question and a further frustration was that there were no free discs in the box and at first I wasn't sure what to order from the internet retailer who shipped 100 discs for not a lot of money, from China of course.
The finish is amazing and achieved quickly. The final plinth looks really good and dare I say it almost professional. Although I had a bit of a false start I am glad I chose this excellent offering from B&Q and also given my experience with the router will happily choose this brand (box permitting!) in future. Cheers.
rubbish at high speed

Great sander, love it, but the foam backing pad on the bottom has been damaged. Ive looked in store and cant seem to find a replacement. Are these sold separately?
not as good as it says
