In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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.

very good

i was concern about spending so little on a disc sander but i took the plunge, The sander is very quiet, smooth running and the cast iron table is great. To set the angle of the table i use a magnetic gem digital angle measure it is really easy to get accurate set up, As for changing discs i won't be doing that often as this machine used adhesive back discs which make the disc more accurate as theres no spongy velcro! A heat gun helps remove discs cleanly, i use a 180 disc that is a nice grit for me as i use the sander for fine tuning segmented pieces for segmented bowl construction

Axminster provided a superb service as always, i am thrilled with my purchase

Good value sander

I chose the Axminster Hobby as it seemed well made, adequately powered and nicely finished for the price. There are no holding down bolt holes, but at 30kg it sits very solidly on its rubber feet and should prove very stable in use. Setting the table and fence using a square was easy. Being smooth and quiet in operation I expect it to be a pleasure to use.
The short bit of 'flexible' hose supplied wasn't particularly useful and instead I connected my extractor hose direct to the port, but that's the only negative point I would make.
Very helpful staff at Axminster store.

Good value sander. Excellent cast table. Very good mitre fence.

There are many of these sanders on the market. This one stands as due to the accuracy of the disc, it runs very quietly indeed and very smooth. All this, and a 3 year warranty. The customer service I received at the Basingstoke store was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, and they carried it to the car for me. Thank you.

Useful bit of kit

I'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.
Changing sanding discs is a real PITA so it's worth a few trial and errors to find the best grit that will best suit your style. I've found that the 180 grit works best for me.
I consider that the sander is for finishing. So close cuts from your saw are essential.
It isn't the best machine around but is reasonable value for money.
You must use extraction with this sander otherwise you will have a layer of dust over everything.
