    I'm trying to hire a continuous belt sander but so far no-one I've contacted will deliver to Hertfordshire - they'll only deliver within the M25.

    Can anyone help me here?

    In all the pointless posts I've read (and posted) on all the forums in all the years I've been a member of this site, that had the least point of all of them. Why don't you do everyone a favour and sit on your hands for 24 hours?

    Thanks for the info Softus.
    I've checked HSS but they only have drum sanders.
    All the experts say to use continuous belt sanders as drum sanders can damage the floor.

    Thanks Diyisfun for the link.
    I hadn't heard of this hire company, so I got all excited (I need to get out more!), but they also only have drum sanders. Ho hum.....

    We found a company in North London who, although won't deliver to us in Hertfordshire, are happy for us to collect and return the sanders.
    We've hired a Bona endless belt sander, an edger, and what's called a 'table top finisher'.
    All that's left now is two days of graft!
    Thanks for all the help, it was much appreciated.

    I'm sure you and your husband will enjoy using the Bona.
