Mirka Deros review

I have been using the Mirka Deros on several projects recently. I was only aware of this machine after reading posts by a few of the forum members who raved about this machine and also this review Mirka Ceros review

The Mirka Deros is the perfect sanding solution. It’s much quieter than other mains powered sanders, although the dust extraction does increase the noise in the area. I don’t have a dedicated dust extractor so I normally use the Wickes wet and dry vacuum. The abranet abrasives that attach to the machine seem to last much longer than traditional sanding backing papers, they also do not get clogged up with paint meaning that more dust is removed from the work area.

So far I have sanded down a steel van vault and a couple of painted plywood panels. In both instances the machine performed brilliantly and gave an excellent surface to paint onto. The machine is comfortable to hold, relatively quiet and easy to use. I must admit that I almost bought a traditional random orbit sander but I’m delighted that I chose this instead.

Though I don't have one of their sanders I am big fan of their abrasives and use them almost exclusively, their abralon pads are a thing of wonder and significantly improved the quality of my work and cut the time down as well, have saved me a fortune over the years even though the pads themselves are a little pricey.

Oh and to improve extraction even more you might like to pair it with a dust deputy cyclone separator. I have been using cyclonic separators for a couple of years now on my big dust extractor and love them, I recently got a dust deputy for my shop vac and how I wish I had got one years ago, a massive improvement!

Very impressive! The lack of noise is amazing. A small point, but I like the separate mains lead. Saves having the lead bent where it comes out of the machine when in the kitbox, and makes it easily changable if it gets damaged.
The Abranet is obviously well worth a look too.
