What sander for the floor in my tiny weeny bathroom?


Postby Rocky Racoon » Mon Jan 07, 2008 10:07 pm

Victorian house. Pine boards.
The room is VERY small and just about fits a loo, small bath and sink so I need a sander which can get into small spaces and round corners.
I'd really appreciate some tips so I can crack on and get this done.

Hi
What you need here is a randon orbital sander, a good pair of knee pads and a lot of elbow grease. Look at a good Bosch or similar from a hire shop and a good range of papers similar to that used on a normal sander.
If you were skilled at using it you could possibly use an edging sander, but you could easily do more damage with these if it's your first time.

'Elbow grease' huh? To me that translates as 'husband'. I'll let him know about the randon. Thanks.

"randon" sounds like some form of nuclear material!!! That was just my dyslexia talking. Try Random in the sentence it works much better.
