I love my Black and Decker mouse sander
on 30 July 2017
I love my Black and Decker mouse sander! I bought it to help me renovate an old teak bench, which had become very weathered, with all sorts of algae growing on it. I brushed the wood down first and then went to work with the sander. I've nearly finished preparing the bench before I treat the wood and can't believe how well it is working. I don't think I could have tackled this project if I had to do all the sanding by hand. The sanding sheets last really well and it is useful t be able to change the diamond shaped tip without changing the whole sheet. I bought some extra sanding sheets via Amazon but these don't last as long as the ones supplied with the mouse. Still good value for money though!
I have also used the sander on a teak garden coffee table and it came up beautifully.
My only criticism is that, although the sander is small, I find the grip slightly awkward when trying to get the sander into difficult angles as my hands are not quite large enough to give a firm grip. I would like therefore like there to be another knob on the front which I could hold with the other hand to help manoeuvre the sander when it's not just being used flat.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend this product and wonder why I didn't buy one years ago!
