But I really like the oscillating sanding belt feature on this one and Axminster don’t have anything like that in the same price range just basic bobbing drum type with adjustable tables...so I’ll sleep on it and decide tomorrow.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Define "long."

    Does it have to long and thin? I have some that are long and thick.

    EDIT: I'll wait and see if mine needs adjusting and how yours goes. I don't have good choice for long screwdrivers at reasonable prices. $30 is too much for one screwdriver that I'll use only once.

    I'll find plenty of uses for em...they have magnetic tips, ok for picking up dropped screws off the floor to save bending down..and long enough for back scratchers..and my Son Mike seems to end up borrowing most my hand tools and never returns e'm so they won't be wasted

    This is a universal problem, Ken.
    Somewhere in the family magna carta, there must be a clause absolving offspring from the obligation of returning 'borrowed' tools.
    I have to remind my lot that the rules of inheritance don't apply until I'm no longer in need.
    Searches for missing tools usually culminate in a phone around to sus out the culprit.

    My son Mike doesn't borrow my tools . I just misplace them. I'll search and search and then buy a replacement. The following day, the tool will appear. That happens with everything, not just tools, so I have lots of duplicates.
