Cordless sanders.

Yes, that looks ideal, I'll buy it...Oh no I won't. Looking for a cordless sander to use on my boat, but all I can find is new bodies only less battery!! Well thank you very much retailers, that is so fu****g handy, I can't believe it! I'd just love to buy a battery orbital sander without an effin battery, hours of fun just looking at it!

Shouldn't this thread have been titled "Batteryless sanders" ?

You're damn right there!! Cordless, batteryless, the word useless comes very much to mind!

I find cordless power-tools are useless for anything but the lightest of work. If you need to work away from a socket then buy a generator.

Wot PoP said, time to flick the lead over your shoulder and get on the job with a 240v power sourced one.

I cant recount the number of times where i've cried out for a proper electric drill. Cordless drills are fine, if you are drilling into marshmallows, but as soon as you point them to brick or a hard wood, regardless of quality of the drill bit, they just fail.

I was recently very nearly divorced after having failed a simple task due to a cordless drill. (brick dust everywhere in the bathroom, but no furniture applied to the walls whatsoever!)

BRING BACK WIRES AND THE ASSOCIATED DANGER/THRILLS, etc, etc...

18v was not enough for my missus.

I'm going to have to have a voltage extension.
