Erbauer ERB405SDR 1/3 Sheet Sander 230-240V
The sander works fine with light weight sandpaper. The spring clips holding the sandpaper inplace are not strong enough.

I decided to buy this as my previous sander (Titan 1/2 sheet) literally fell to bits after 4 months of VERY little use. I took it all back to Screwfix and they asked if I wanted a refund or an exchange. I told them I'd seen an Erbauer sander (ERB 405 SDR) which was more expensive than the Titan, so they gave me a refund on the Titan, I paid the extra money and bought the Erbauer instead. Comparing this with the Titan is like comparing a jaguar to a lada, there is virtually no vibration when using it. When I used the Titan it felt like it wanted to jump out of my hands so I'm not surprised it fell to bits. I've only had the Erbauer for a few days but I am VERY pleased with it so far. Obviously I can't speak for reliability but I've had other Erbauer tools for years, so I don't see any problems here.
Well done Screwfix, I have used them for well over 15 years without any complaints, I wonder how many other suppliers you can say that about.
Would definitely recommend this sander.

A good well priced sander that has both hook and loop and clamp facility. Works well and is not too loud. It was disappointing that after only a couple off uses the corner of the aluminium bade broke off -screwfix replaced it but the time cost and inconvenience ended up costing more than the sander.

This sander is a to be a gift, so I have not used it in anger.
However it seems to be well made and is comfortable to hold and is fairly low vibration, so seems ok.
The good feature of this sander is that it can use sandpaper sheets velcro attached or plain sheets attached using the spring clips.
This said, why does Screwfix not stock sander sheets of dimensions 230mm X 93mm to use with the clips?
However, good service as always from screwfix............Thanks
