TSPSP650 Handheld Oscillating Spindle Sander
Triton Tools tritontools.com Price: $119 Oscillating spindle sanders add an up-and-down motion to their rotating spindles to avoid wearing out their sanding sleeves in one place along the thickness of your material. Most spindle sanders are benchtop models, but Triton is offering a portable handheld version to allow you to smooth and profile the edges on larger workpieces.
This sander is just the thing for squaring up the edges of curved materials or thick slabs, but it can also be used freehand for breaking sharp edges with more maneuverability than a belt sander. The included adjustable edge guide adds a measure of control to keep you from gouging divots into edge surfaces, and the tool also comes with a bench-mounting kit that lets you use the tool inverted in stationary benchtop mode for use with small pieces. For maximum versatility, the tool comes with four rubber sanding drums in 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/32", and
1 1/2" diameters.
