For a Bosch one thats about as decent as Im prepared to shell out for given the limited usage. Have a vacuum but not up and running yet.

Any particular brands or sellers on eBay?

How many do you go through? Finer ones wear out fast if you don't start off with a coarser grit

Ive no links for eBay, but if you search them, loads for up
I tend to get the klingspoor ones and get a mixed set of 50 grits for about 11 quid delivered

The dewalt sander is just about 100quid, Ive got a shed full of 30/40/50 quid sanders that didnt last two minutes

Cheers, one I got was about 90 and seem to be going grand. Will order up a box of 50 or 100
