The man from MIRKA visited today. Got to see their range of sanding tools, polishing stuff and accessories in addition to their abrasives range. It was interesting to compare the electric with the air powered.
The electric random orbit sander was very quiet - it was easy to chat at the same time as using it. It worked off a 22v supply so no danger if the power lead were damaged.
The firm offer sanders with different amounts of orbit for different jobs - the finest had a 2.5mm orbit.
The polish compounds are clearly labelled so you can tell how coarse or fine they are. A great and simple idea that I wish some other companies followed.
