Congratulations to MARK TIPPINS, , who wins a Makita BO5031 orbital sander, worth R2 899, for writing this month’s winning letter.
The Makita BO5031 sander is a must-have in any toolbox. It is ideal for removing paint from furniture, cleaning up between finish coats, removing rough spots and even cleaning and smoothing some metals and composite materials. This variable-speed sander generates between 4 000 and 12 000 orbits per minute. It has a disc diameter of 125 mm and a pad diameter of 123 mm. The BO5031 has been ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. Dust extraction is accomplished through six holes under the sanding pad and fed into the dust box. The sander weighs 1,3 kg and has a two-metre power-supply cord. To find out more about Makita power tools, visit www.makita.co.za
