I just went to B&Q and spent £26 on some plaster, some brackets, some rawlplugs and two paint rollers.

why aren't you working?
Also B&Q is rubbish, as is homebase. I found a local hardware supplier the otehr day and they are a little bit more expensive but so helpful and friendly it's worth it

I went on my lunch break.
And B&Q may be rubbish if you need advice, but if all you need is a small tub of pre-mix plaster, some rawlplugs, some brackets and a couple of paint rollers, then they are perfectly adequate. They often have good deals on power tools too. Though I need to find somewhere to repair my belt sander.

i do understand that and I do still shop there
but it was nice to have a personal and helpful shopping experience for once!

Hmmm, the part I need will cost me about £25.
should I risk taking a 200 power tool apart myself or should I just take it somewhere and pay someone else some money to repair it?

what part is broken?

The drive shaft.

No. 55 on this diagram

The problem is that you need to dismantle pretty much the entire sander to be able to replace it.

It happened over a year since I bought it
and it was my own fault for leaving a belt fully tensioned and caked in dust and then just trying to use the sander without loosening it first.
