Much cheaper.... :hiding:
Looks a nice bit of kit to be fair, but not sure it would stand up to the rigours of everyday use.

Definitely more compact!

... and scan the receipt as in three years it will have faded (and if you can keep the packaging).

Just took a chainsaw back to Aldi yesterday. Over two years old, but not used much. Had the receipt, box, etc.
It was always a job to pull the cord to start it.
They refunded me after a bit of discussion. :thumbleft:

Great idea, I've been doing this for years now. I used to have a piece of wood with a large 6" nail through it. I used to stick my recepts on there. Trouble is the uv light gets to it and as you say before long you have a blank receipt.

I've considered buying the deros for some time now. Would the orbital one remove more material than the rectangular?

Am I correct in thinking it's completely dust free and you can sand in the home without using dust sheets?

Deros is superb and with the Abranet mesh it will pull the dust through with a good extraction. I use a Henry which works very well.

I wouldn't expect the Deos to remove more but it would be better for some door frames, skirting, 90 degree corners....

The orbital is awesome mate. Even with something like P180 on, you can easily take corners back to bare unintentionally when sanding fatty edges for example. You have to take care not to be getting the primer out again!

When I bought my mirka it came with a selection of discs, one being a rather scary P40, which will strip a painted surface in the time you've plugged in the heat gun.

I had a room to stain, all new skirts and architraves but the door linings had years of old paint on. I got it back to bare using a limbide and the deros. Looked like it had just come out of the timber yard.

I may not have made myself clear. I meant would there be a difference in surface removal between the deros orbital and the deros rectangular. The deros rectangular may suit my needs more as it would be able to get into tight corners as opposed to the deros orbital.

Is the extraction good enough so as not to cover furniture with dust sheets?

Dunno about using without dust sheets as I always sheet rooms up as a matter of course.

Having said that, there is very little dust. I often find I can sand down well filled walls and find very little dust on the tops of skirtings afterwards.

There really is a massive difference to cleanliness, speed and thoroughness of preparation with these dustless kits.

I used to struggle with dust as a contact lens wearer, even if I wore goggles, but all that's a thing of the past now.

Deros would remove more way quicker.
