Sanding curves can be difficult — especially if you want to use a power tool.  That’s where Dremel’s contour sander comes it handy.  A variety of contour shapes and detail pads fit into its grip, which then oscillates at 4,000 to 10,000 strokes per minute to do the hard work for you. 

It’s variable speed, too, so you have quite a bit of control.  But the important part is the shape of the detail pads: with the right one, this sucker’ll fit in almost any little space — perfect for when your palm sander is just too big.

It weighs less than two pounds and features replacable motor brushes, which means this tool should be with you for the long haul.  Street pricing starts around $50.

    I had a Porter Cable sander very similar to this and it was nearly useless as the paper loaced up within a few seconds of use. Changing paper that frequently took much longer than just sanding by hand. Mine cost around $100 and I sold it with maybe 30 minutes of use for $20. I almost didn’t sell it because it was so useless.

    I have the older US made one… it’s useful sometimes
    Paper loads up but you can just quickly pass it over a cleaning block

    I need something like this to inlet a rifle action into a wood stock. Have been looking at the P-C, but reading mixed reviews, like here. Maybe the cheaper Dremel will get me by without a lot of risk.

    I’m stripping and sanding interior window and door framing, along with a staircase. This tool is the only one that gets in the deep grooves and around curves. Too bad it’s not made any more. If the sandpaper glops up, you need to strip the wood better before sanding.
