Random orbit sanders do a fine job of smoothing surfaces without leaving swirl marks, but after a long day of vibration they can leave your hands numb — and long-term exposure to this can lead to permanent nerve damage. Craftsman Professional’s Vibrafree sander cleverly incorporates nested and counterbalanced sanding disks that move precisely in opposite directions. This action prevents swirls and significantly reduces the amount of vibration a user will experience.
The Vibrafree sands with inner and outer sanding disks that are replaced separately. The space between the disks is used to remove dust to its “Cyclonic Dust Collection System,” which Craftsman claims traps 40% more dust than standard dust-removal systems. It harnesses the centrifugal force of spinning air to more efficiently collect dust in its trap.
You can pick up one of these hand-savers for about $100 at your local Sears or Sears.com.
