ive decided to get one of the best ones you can buy

a Porter Cable 7424 from the states

bit more money than yer Halfords jobbies but a much more professional bit of kit

ive never tried the Halfords ones to be honest

The ones from Halfords are orbitals, so you're limited on what they can do and you can make things worse if you use them wrong.

What Jon has ordered is a dual-axis machine, so loads of scope for correction, and safe to use. Autopia will also 'assist' with import tax usually so you shouldn't have a problem ;)

Netto a few weeks back where selling buffers like the one Jonosi bought for £19.99, looks the same style, but for £20 and from Netto im guessing it wont be amazing!

Just found this on The bay of the E

Silverline tools are of a Pretty high quality, use to deal with them when i worked in a DIY store, most of my tool box is made up of silverline! For how good the tools are there Cheap to and they do a life time Guarantee too!
