Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mullion Recent visit to Screwfix store
Although I was only purchasing a few accessories, by the time I had completed my order form I was in and out the store within 5 minutes. Considering the store was busier than usual the staff had time with each customer to have a good laugh and giggle while maintaining excellent service. Definitely use it again just for the laughs. P.S.Always use this item for it's long lasting together with durability makes it well worth the money.

These pads are poor quality.
1. The velcro sticks well
1. The holes are roughly punched, leaving parts of the extraction holes raised, causing the pads to leave swirl marks and stripes.
2. They clog very easily with filler/glue.
3. The abrasive comes away from the backing very quickly if trying to sand anything other than a flat surface. The paint then starts to dump red oxide colour onto your workpiece.
4. They wear out very quickly.
For reference, I used this with a Makita 4900 1/2 sheet sander on S+ grade birch ply.
Screwfix - these are the only sheets you stock with holes for the 1/2 sheet sanders with extraction - please stock some better quality ones in future!
