Hi I'm going to buy a sander, but I'm not sure which kind. A belt, orbit or sheet sander. Could anyone advise please. Thanks

I’d say the most important thing to look out for is the type of sander you’re going to buy. Orbital sanders only move in a circular motion, and are heavier (better for heavy duty use), while palm sanders are smaller and lighter.

I’d recommend an BLACK+DECKER sander, it’s got a good OPM, price and does the job perfectly. It’s pretty durable too!
