Hello, I'm new to this forum, but in need of some help. I have almost finished fitting my own parquet floor (first time DIY - please don't judge me too harshly!) and am coming up to the sanding process. The blocks are new, unfinished oak, that I got a great deal on. I've done a reasonable job, few minor disasters along the way, but hey, I never expected it to be perfect like you pros out there. Anyway, from the outset I knew I would need an orbital sander (lagler trio, or bona flexisand, an edger and probably a dust control unit) and it would be the key to getting a decent job done. I know it's a bit of an art, and parquets are particularly difficult, but I've got this far, so may as well continue. The big problem I have is getting hold of either a trio or flexisand. No one anywhere in Birmingham has even heard of them. I've called most of the local and big chain hire firms and they only do drum sanders. When I mention orbital they always point me to hand helds! I'm willing to look around the midlands, but am surprised Birmingham hasn't any. I've called a few firms just outside and no luck there either. From searching online, the nearest I can find is London or Cambridge. Surely there must be somewhere close. I would really appreciate it if someone could mention a few places to try. There must be a hire store that hasn't a big online presence, but does hire orbital floor sanders to the public.
