Which Air Compressor? Comparing ABAC, Bambi, Clarke, Hyundai, Orazio, Scheppach, SIP and Swan

A Cheaper Mirka DEROS Random Orbital Sander? Let's Compare!

In this video I'm comparing the Mirka DEROS random orbital sander (which I have owned since February 2018) with a cheaper alternative Hyvst 350w sander from China. This random orbital sander appears to be the same machine as those available under different brand names: Sealey DAS150PS,  Menzer ETS 150, Pela ROS090, Delrem and possibly some others - although please note: I don't know for sure if they are actually all the same machine with the same components.

In this video I convert a rusty old Stanley no.4 handplane in to a very useful scrub plane.  I needed to spend some time restoring it, removing rust, and making everything work again and then I can put a camber on to the blade to allow me to hog off lots of material!

Including a flappy paddle safety switch which allows me to turn off the saw with my knee, a low profile riving knife to allow cutting through cuts / housing grooves / dado joints / rebates / rabbets, various mitre gauge options to upgrade the one supplied with the saw, zero clearance insert options and a dust tray idea to make cleaning up dust from beneath the saw much easier.
