I can NOT remember what this item was called, and my Googlefu has failed me tonight.

It’s a round base to put a random orbital sander on while it’s still running, or winding down. IIRC, it was a round pad in a plastic base that just sat on the bench.

Because you just feel stupid holding the sander in the air while it takes its sweet time to stop. Or you get impatient, put it down anyway, and then watch it wiggle across the bench…

You know you do, admit it.

So what was it called, and where can I find it?

Tell me about it. I hit a sale yesterday and saved $185 on a Dewalt 735 planer. I was clicking so fast my mouse almost overheated. LMAO I’ve been looking at one of these as well. I may have to see what else is on sale to go with it since the mouse has cooled off now.

For a chaep alternative, I used a old dog bowl with a piece of foam in the bottom.
Now when I’m done sanding, I’m have a reminder of my dearly departed shop buddy :)

Huh, looks like you can leave your sander on while you set it on the cleaning pad, it’ll just spin and clean the pad while you reposition your work. Cool idea, oversold till Dec 30 though.

I wonder what product name that rubber is sold under, other than just “rubber” Like could you just buy a 1” thick 12”x12” sheet of it and make your own sander sitter and cleaning pads for your sanders?

It’s a bit ridiculous at normal price, but $15 doesn’t seem too bad.
