Black & Decker. (I know, I know!) Anyway, I bought some time ago one
of their detailing sanders (the Mouse) and all in all it's a handy
little thing to have. When I bought it there were supplied several
sanding pads of various grits - one of which was a super-fine 2000
(sic) grit. It is maginificent for that final pass before the last
coat - just a whisper of friction removing the tiniest bumps in the
finish. The problem is that you can't buy the pads separately. The
B&D catalogue only goes up to 240 grit.
Nice guys, B&D. You expect me to buy a whole new rig every time I
need some of these super-fine pads? Why bother to include them at all
if you aren't going to offer replacements? Or were they supposed to
I think I'll be looking for a new detailing sander but can anyone
advise (in UK) of light duty sanders that actually offer very fine
grit replacement pads?
