Does everything i purchased it for and maybe more as i haven’t explored all of its capabilities yet.
No allen key for removing the table so the sanding disc can be replaced.
This is of the usual proxxon high quality. Very quiet in operation and with excellent torque. The abrasive paper is easily changed and can be easily reused many times.
This is a fantastic piece of kit just like all proxxon products.
This machine was bought for a specific purpose and it has proved to be a great compact sander in use. Well made and solid it has the advantage of variable speed as well.

I’ve had three other disc sanders, and they didn’t last more that a year or two of moderate usage making radio-controlled aircraft. I’ve generally paid around £30, so i suppose they were reasonable value. I decided to try better quality this time around, and so paid £132 for this unit. Rolls royce quality, which should last me a lifetime. I don’t like the price, but i love the sander. Much more powerful motor, which shouldn’t burn out, as my previous units have done when sanding ply ribs to shape. I’m looking at buying some more proxxon tools now, to replace less precise items.
Like most i bought this sander for hobby work and it’s proven to be a very good investment. I use it for wood and metal shaping and sanding which it does with ease. Powerful and quiet motor deals with anything thrown at it so far. The adjustable speed control is very handy allowing for precise detailing or rapid roving of excess. The easily removable sanding discs supplied are of good quality. I did have an issue where one disc overheated and stuck fast to the silicone backing but that was my over eagerness. I bought replacement adhesive silicone backing which made it as good as new. More expensive than some alternatives, i’d say if you want a price of kit that won’t let you down and u plan to use a lot, buy this.
Got for my partner for his hobby and he loves it he has always wanted one of the disc sanders and i got him one.
Just the job, saves rough and ready results using sandpaper by hand.
Returned faulty cost me £30.
Great product – pity we have huge import charges – we pay about double of what you pay in germany on less than 30% of income. Nevertheless – just great, exactly what i need for my model ship building.
This machine is powerful, accurate and above all quiet, it’s absolutely perfect for modelling and perhaps even heavier work. Typical proxxon engineering.
This is the sander to beat all sanders. Pricey it may be and i thought long and hard before spending this much on a sander. But i am glad i did, like the other proxxon machines i have it is the ultimate nothing to match it i don’t think.
