“ Brand: Power Devil „

This is going to read the same as my review of the Power Devil heat gun because both have been a let down. The Power Devil sander looks similar and has similar features to more expensive models by Black and Decker or Bosch. I think it was about £10 cheaper (somewhere around £15). The Power Devil range turns up in the DIY chains (Homebase, B&Q and the like) and Argos but I've noticed that some of these stores now do their own range of cheaper power tools. You buy sheets of sandpaper, clip them on and away you go. You start off with stripped wood that is rough, stained and with flecks of paint and end up with wood that looks like new. The sander seemed fine while it was working but it only lasted six months. Although it was used a fair bit ( maybe a few hours a day for several days a month) it was a spare sander and has been outlasted by the Bosch model we bought 3 years ago. This is a shame because the Power Devil worked as well as the Bosch and had the same features but packed up after such a short time. I don't know whether I'd have got a repair/replacement because I couldn't find the receipt but it's put me off the whole Power Devil range.
I bought a Power Devil Orbital Sander, from Screwfix, last year. Just recently we had to have a new Hot Water Tank put in. The Hot Water tank was about 5 cm taller then the old tank and so I lost a whole shelf in my airing cupboard. So I got to work, using my sander to sand down pallet wood, from a pallet that I dismantled, the finished wood had a lovely smooth surface with rounded off edges. Now I have a new lovely finished off shelf in my airing cupboard just above the remaining shelf, it hardly took any time. Would have taken a long time by hand. The Orbital sander uses Black and Decker 1/3rd sheet with extraction holes for dust collection. Power Devil Power Tools seem to be a reasonable price, and very well made.
