Tesco Value Sandpaper
Advantages: Works well, is good value for money, a fine selection of grades
Disadvantages: A tad thinner than other sandpapers and sheets slightly smaller than standard
With a fair bit of home decorating going on at the minute in our house, I recently ran out of sandpaper and needed more supplies. With little time to head out to the D.I.Y store, I instead stumbled across this batch sitting on the shelves of my local Tesco. Priced at under £1, I wasn't sure how good it was going to be but it had to be better thasn nothing and I wasn't exactly going to waste a lot of money if it was rubbish was I?
I am pleased to say however that what you get for your money is actually very good. The sheets are slighter smaller in size than the paper I normally would use but that was not really a problem and instead only a minor inconvenience that I quickly got over. There is a nice selection here ranging from a fine sandpaper through to a medium grade and finally finishing on a coarse grade that is proper heavy duty. It certainly did the job and wasn't anywhere near as cheap, flimsy or inferior as you migt expect from the price and the fact that it is part of the Tesco Everyday Value range, as it has been recently re-launched.
Proper hard-core D.I.Yers might be able to poiint out more flaws but for the amateur enthusiast or someone who just has a few fiddly little sanding jobs to do then this is ideal! It works just as effectively and as well as any of the more expensive brands and really in this current economic climate, why WOULD you want to pay any more when this does just as well?
Summary: Another great value product from Tesco!
