This boring tool has an indexable insert at the tip and is 31 inches long.These sanding tools use 2 inch hook and loop sanding disks, I still need to make handles for two of them.

Curious how you did the bearings on the sanding tools? I did mine by glueing the bearing into a block of wood :) Wasn’t sure if there is a better way.
The sanding tools are great though, I use mine all the time. What sort of steel did you make the boring tool out of?

Pinkfish,The sanding tools are made from 6” long 3/8 bolts that I heated and bent and cut the heads off.The one with the handle has a 1/2” aluminum disk 2” round and a 3/8-16 tapped hole in it for the bolt to screw into. Then I got some hook Velcro with an adhesive back and stuck it to the face of the disk.The other two sanding tools i used teflon for the disk. Just some scrap I had.The boring tool is plain steel I got from Home Depot.

how to you change out the tip inserts? i would think u could drill a hole, tap it and use an allen screw…but i have never done this, only thought about it.

That is exactly how I did it. I added a close-up picture for you.

They may bot be as good as store bought, but they are fun to make.
