Does the job, questionable reliability.
on 19 July 2014
Whilst the sander itself does the job as intended, the reliability is questionable. From day one the on/off switch has no positive action and when machine is switched off it sometimes starts back up as you go to put it down or starts then stops as you switch it on. The reason for this i would guess is due to the rubber dust cover for the switch being too thick. I now switch off at the wall when not being used for a while.
After owning the sander for 3 months the machine stopped sanding altogether but would rotate freely and would "buzz" when switched on. When sent back for repair (i should have chose the refund), i was told that a piece of debris had been "stuck in the fan mechanism, as i had only been sanding wood i can only assume it was this that they were referring to, hardly a job for which it was not intended. In short, a lot of money for a flawed design.Would not recommend.
