TOOL review: HobbyMate Micro2s PRO


TOOL review HobbyMate Micro2s PRO

Sanding nub marks was never been this fun! I have here a simple review of the HobbyMate Micro2s PRO. It is basically a battery ( 2 AAA ) operated sanding and polishing tool. I tested it with a nub mark and it was really easy and fun to use.

The tool comes with 3 sanding adapters with 600 grit, 1200 grit and 2000 grit, 2 pieces of different design adapters and it also comes with 1x the same grit replacement sanding papers. You could replace the grit to 300 grit for faster nub removal results. You just need to glue a small piece of sand paper on the adapter or use double adhesive tape.

The tool has 2 variable speeds and is very lightweight. Being lightweight makes it comfortable to use for long minutes of usage. The adaptors are very easy to replace and attach and the connector is made up of soft plastic to reduce wear and tear.

All in all this is a very nice and fun tool to use for easy nub mark removal. Just replace the sand paper in the attachment to a lower grit ( 300 ) for faster nub mark removal results. After sanding with this tool, you could wet sand the surface with a higher grit sandpaper attachment for a smoother finish using a sanding sponge. The real plus is that it is almost impossible to over sand the surface and the edges nearby.

I do not recommend using the tool for heavy sanding and reshaping of surfaces... this tool is perfect for quick small sanding work and polishing. Reshaping of surface is for a different tool. You could order this tool at HOBBYMATE.
