If you’re tired of filing by hand, you’re probably thinking, “There’s a power tool for just about every other hand tool — why not filing?”  Wahl makes what they claim is the world’s smallest power filer/sander.  This rechargeable tool uses reciprocating action to mimic how you’d use a file, and it reaches into tight spaces for easy precision finishing, deburring, and sanding of plastic, wood, metal, and most other materials.

Wahl makes this tool in the USA.  Attachments snap-fit over the tool head.  You can choose from an assortment of files like flat, round, triangle, and half round, or you can use the 5/8″ wide by 2-1/8″ long sander wand with sandpaper in grits of 100, 220, and 400.

For $75 you get the sander/filer, a charging stand, a sanding wand, and four needle files.

    I do a lot of model making, and don’t really see the utility of this tool. If you use good quality sanding sticks, they remove material quickly and don’t load up very much – a swipe across the jeans while I am working keeps them clean. This kind of work on plastic requires a light touch.

    If you want to save even more, go down to your local plastic supplier, get some scrap 1/8″ plexiglass and glue various strips of sandpaper to both sides with contact cement. Does a great job and you can cit the plastic into triangles, strips or other shapes for the task at hand. I have even put handles on them and used tweezers to get them into small inside corners.
