Hi Rick.
No way to attach a Hoover I'm afraid as it is totally open.

It's a lovely looking little gadget. I'm tempted, but can't really justify owning one for the few occasions when I might have a use for it.

Hi Rick.
I agree with you entirely about the initial outlay of any tool really. I can justify it to myself by saying the only cost to produce this brake van is the cost of this tool and just paint and a couple of centre buffers as i already have wood, wheels, bearings etc. And i will have the sander to use for future projects. :-)
A few years ago I bought the small Proxxon circular saw, for just over £90, and I have used it so much on projects since and i am still using the 2 blades that came with it.

went and had a look at this linisher, quite nice, however it doesn't mention if the table tilts to sand at angles, of this is achieved by angles on the bench, please can you advise, many thanks.

Hi Jimmy.
If you look at the photo of the machine on my workbench you can see the screw that holds the table to the body. This can be loosened with the supplied Allen key to allow you to tilt the table up and down. I will add a photo in a few minutes.

Hi Jimmy.
The table tilts about 20° up or down.
There are a few different models available and they may be different in this respect. If you decide to buy also be aware that some models come with only one belt and no power pack.
