A good value-for-money disc sander which will be a great asset in any hobbyist's workshop. The 300mm disc is driven by a quiet 750W induction motor and takes the full range of our 300mm diameter self-adhesive discs. Tip!Self adhesive discs can easily be removed complete with their glue by gently warming with a hot air gun before removing. The motor is controlled by a no-volt-release switch and there is a brake provided to slow the disc down in a reasonable time. The cast iron sanding table has a ground top surface and is provided with a slot for the adjustable mitre fence, used for end grain sanding. The table tilts to 45° and is firmly locked in position with heavy duty handles at both ends. Dust is extracted from the bottom of the disc via a shroud which terminates in a 63mm diameter outlet. A 450mm length of flexible hose is provided with the machine; this has a 60mm diameter sleeve at the end which will connect directly to an extractor.

|Overall L x W x H||500 x 470 x 420mm|
|Power||750W 230V 1ph|

Useful bit of kitI've had my sander for a few months now and it is really a productive machine. It is great for finishing end grain - square or shaped.

Not user friendlyGood quality machine with exceptions. The machine comes with a 100 grit disc already fitted. As I required a finer grit I also ordered two 140 grit discs. I found that I had to remove the 100 grit disc and discard it (throw it away) and fit the 140 grit disc. Consequently every time one wishes to change grit you discard a perfectly usable disc. Why do you not fit velcro discs in the first place.
