    Hi,

    So I'm intending to do a bit of rust work, and will need a DA / Random Ordbit sand to grind out the rust on my wheel arches.

    I then, in the future, hope to use the same machine for polishing...

    Is there any product that you would recommend? To be honest i would like to keep it up £60 ish.

    Found these - are they any good?


    300W Random Orbit Sander - 110V - Sanders & Planers - Power Tools -Tools, Electrical & Plumbing - Wickes
    480W Random Orbit Sander - Sanders & Planers - Power Tools -Tools, Electrical & Plumbing - Wickes


    Bosch PEX220A Random Orbit Sander, 603378070


    MacAllister Random Orbital Sander MOS450C 450W, 0000005209132

    The Mcalister B&Q one is Brilliant, I did a massive amount of mahogany wood floors with one, brilliant machine, but get the disks off ebay as they are cheaper
