Best Palm Mouse Detail Sander Reviews 

Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the best mouse detail sanders that are currently available on the United Kingdom marketplace.

I hate sanding by hand and I would always try to get a power sander on to any of these type of jobs if at all possible. This handy little sander is really useful for most DIY tasks around the home.

They are called slightly different names. Some people refer to them as palm sanders as they comfortably fit into the palm of your hand. Other people call them mouse sanders because of their mouse like shape.

Some people call them detail sanders as they are very good for getting into awkward areas and corners.

Just below you will see our top 5 list of mouse shaped detail sanders. However, we also know you are busy, so if you don't have time to read our full review, we would highly recommend the BLACK+DECKER KA161BC Mouse Detail Sander

Palm Mouse Sander Buying Tips


These sanders are a small and light tool so i would totally avoid any cheap model or any name you have never heard of. Stick to a well known name and any thing under £30 is not worth having.

Apart from buying something of quality, the number one consideration with these Palm sanders is the accessories. They are specialized sizes and can easily be specific only to the individual tool. So, again, buying a recognised name will mean that the sanding pads will always be available. I would go one step further and always buy a model that takes totally standard pads that you can buy anywhere. This means they are always easy to get and cheaper.

In the 5 models i have picked here, there is seriously very little difference in quality and performance so don't be fooled to buying the most expensive, though if you are going to be using it a lot, pick one from the top 4. 

The Black and Decker is a brilliant starter kit if you want to take the easy choice!
