You'll never regret getting one of these things. I've had a Ceros for 5+ years now and wouldn't go back to hand sanding for a pension. :salute:

It's the rectangle one, I have a deros but this certainly fills a gap especially skirting and door frames.

I've just entered competition to win one, but I'll probably end up buying one as I'm not that lucky! [WHITE SMILING FACE]

It looks good but I'm wondering how good it is compared to the Festool which is a fair chunk cheaper.

Which Festool one mate? Have you got a link?

Can you use the Festool hand tools with the mirka extractor?

Saw this, haven't looked into the spec yet to see what work they do.

Would be good if they hooked up to my deros extractor.

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!

Would there be a difference in a drywall sander compared to a conventional sander in terms of revs etc?

Edit cancel that. I thought about the Aldi one but looking through the photos the head is absolutely massive and not suitable for normal sanding.

Great find.

In the right situation a bargain.

I bought one of these yesterday morning, got four new build flats coming up soon and they are all drywall tape and joint so for fifty quid it should come in handy on this job. Set it up last night and it's a nice bit of kit but a bit on the heavy side.
