Evolution Mini 1½" Belt Sander 230V 4.1 5 61 61
mini sander This is a very handy little tool it does a very good job down side bit noisey and limited sizes of grit belts available,other than that very happy with my purchase would recommend for DIY. 10 May 2015
Basic DIY item, only low use I bought this sander awhile back and have used it quite a few times for basic sanding tasks and it did the job. However recently I tried to sand a reasonable size piece of oak, with the 40 grit belts and it's just not up to the job. The first sander broke where the tension adjuster screws into the main body. Screwfix replaced under warranty, so great service as usual. However the replacement has also now broken, even on the furthest adjustment setting the belts just slip. Guessing the friction of 40 grit against oak is greater than the friction between the belt and drive wheel, even slips under it's own weight, without any downward pressure. Other issue is both units got very hot, almost too hot to hold, after 5-7 minutes of use. Probably will look at a proper belt sander to finish the job. 7 May 2015
Nice tool Bought this for area in tight space not suitable for larger power tool, great price works well cannot say how long it will last as recent purchase. Really small will use this more in future 2 May 2015
Evolution1.5" belt sander A very good little machine which I would recommend. Unfortunately the first one failed due to the belt adjustment knob falling off whilst in use. This could have been a bit of a problem as the sanding belt shot off the sander at a fairly high speed. Also the machine does get fairly hot after using for 20 minutes. It would also be great if there was an attachment for a vacuum cleaner, this would help to keep the temperature down a bit. Having said that the performance is great and, with a little adjustment, the sander will get into corners easily and will take off paint quickly. Of course the belt does get clogged fairly quickly when taking old paint off, but this is a small price to pay for the speed of use. Also it would be good if Screwfix were to stock the spare belts. The length is 303mm. the closest one stocked by Screwfix is 305mm and this belt is too long and did not work for me. 18 Mar 2015

The sanding belts you offer are all 2mm longer than the specification stated on the Mini Belt Sander (Evolution Mini 1½" Belt Sander 230VProduct Code: 28949) belt size 40mm x 303mm. I have (today) purchased 5 packs of five including "Cloth Sanding Belts 40mm x 305mm 40 Grit Pack of 5 Product Code: 21328" and they slip when in use.
Any thoughts? Thanks
