Read what current Surcare owners are saying. Here are a few from the US as well as "down under"

G'day Jim,
You may remember our emails back and forth re sanding a large area of coated cork floor. I bought a sander from you in the hope that it would solve this problem.

Well, the news is that I found the Surcare sander to be just the tool!! It showed no signs or inclination to break through or gouge the cork, and did a beautiful job of the sanding. I can tell you I was delighted with the sander. It made the job seem easy. And this is despite the fact that I couldn't find a floor-sanding tradesman willing to do the job, all saying cork was too tricky for them to tackle and the problems the job would throw up too risky. Obviously they haven't got a Surcare sander in their tool-kit!!

'Hi there, you may recall that I was fortunate enough to get one of your sanders on Ebay at a ridiculously low price. I have wanted one for years but couldn't afford it. Thank you for sending through the extra pads I ordered, makes it so easy to change grits of discs. I have just finished a solid mahogany table top using your Surcare sander. What a masterpiece the machine is. 3 solid hours of sanding reduced to 10 minutes and as flat as a billiards table, smooth as a babys bum and a dream to polish after sanding. The BEST, no the VERY BEST there is. Thank you for producing such a fantastic machine. With hindsight, had I bought the sander years ago when I first saw them, I'm sure it would have paid for itself over and over countless times. If you need a recommendation for any doubtful Thomas's out there, feel free to give them ny number. I couldn't sing your praises and your Surcare sander too highly. Best wishes for what I imagine will be a very sound and successful future'.

'Hi there, I am just dropping a line to make a comment on the Surcare sander which I just purchased and used. My name is Nao Matsumoto and I am a custom furniture designer and fabricator. I make and have made numerous commissions and custom orders for various residences and clients. I really needed a solution to sand the rough sawn surfaces of lumber. Most of my work consists of slabs of wood that are used as tabletops etc. Usually the slabs come from the sawmill with mill marks and bandsaw marks. I always had a hell of a time planing and sanding the surfaces, trying to make them flat. I just used the Surcare sander (the 200 model) yesterday and it was revolutionary. Amazing machine, it cut the sanding time to a fraction and the quality was way better than before. I was a little skeptical of this machine at first. I had never heard of it and on top of it Australian tools?!?! I expected a pouch on it until I opened the box. Machine is built like a tank, easy to use and maintain and the looks great. I am so glad that it worked as advertised and will probably buy another unit to speed up production. Sales people at Specialtytools were cool and knew what they were talking about. Thank you for a fantastic tool. Two thumbs up to your sanders!!Hey, I just finished a table and the Surcare sander played a key role for this job. This is a 16ft slab of English Elm that is 4 inches thick. It was too heavy and big to fit in a wide belt sander. The Surcare sander was a breeze to use and was really quick in sanding out the mill marks from the saw mill. I love your product and I will recommend it to everyone who is in this business'.

'We have recently acquired an SMF Microfinisher. Congratulations to you for developing this quite nicely made machine. We build top-end corporate furniture, mainly large-scale conference tables and the like. Sanding has always been a challenge in terms of time spent and quality of surface. Your sander has easily sped up our time and decreased the effort of sanding very large and delicate veneered surfaces. I think all here appreciate it, (even the very sceptical). So much so that only after a week it seems likely we are going to get another really soon. So, Thank You for reinventing the R.O. sander'.

I just wanted to write to let you know how very pleased we are with the sander we bought from you about a year ago. We are using it here in Costa Rica primarily to sand large slabs of wood (1m x 2-5m) which have been cut from timbers with a chain saw mill. It does a wonderful job, leaving the surface much smoother and flatter than we had been able to achieve prior to the purchase and all in a fraction of the time.
I should also mention its simplicity and ease of operation. From time to time I have new men operating the machine, and it is literally only a matter of minutes before "they get the hang of it" and are using the sander like a pro.
...there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that the machine has easily paid for itself.
P.S. One day the new wood floor on the local church was due to be sanded, but the contractor and his drum sander did not show up. The elders began to panic because the floor was supposed to be finished for services on the weekend. A friend whose uncle is a member of that group recalled me talking about the sander and called to borrow it. By the afternoon he returned it with a big smile. His comment, "my uncle is a tough man to please, but he was sure impressed with this machine".

I can report to you it has been an outstanding success for me! We live in a timber-rich area of Australia, with Mountain ash - similar to oak, but a little softer - being a very popular furniture timber used here for the tourist industry in motels, hotels etc. We specialise in the refurbishment of such establishments and are continually making timber tops for desks, vanities, tea-coffee areas and so on. However, we don't mass produce and for us the expense of a large drum sanding machine was not justified with the quantity of sanding required. So the old orbital sanders had a job to do for which they were really not designed, leaving swirls with the coarse grits and the finer grits took forever to remove enough stock for a good surface. Enter our new sander and I estimate our time sanding is cut by at least 75%! So, I can fully recommend and endorse your invention as an indispensable tool every professional furniture and joinery shop should possess, the same as a thicknesser or panel saw.
