I was looking at this and just wondered if anyone else makes something similar. My walking stick business is really taking off and I think using one of these would be way faster than using a orbital sander. Are there any problems with these?

Lee Valley has a flap that is used with a drill or drill press

I would also look into Klingspor for there sanding mop which attaches to a free standing drill press.

if you need a real flap sander get the Grizzly. Mine has been a real time saver.

I don’t have a drill press and don’t have the need for one except for sanding so that’s out of the question.

I’ve got one that fits on a drill- I use it a lot! I’ve often wished it was a stationary thing, it would make it far easier to use.

Woodworker supply has one too but it’s more expensive. I bought the grizzly a couple of months ago and don’t know what took me so long to buy it. It’s great! The only thing is that it will fill your shop up with dust like you wouldn’t believe. I need to make a dust catch or something behind the wheel.

Black and Decker made a portable style years ago. They worked great. I think the stationary would be just as good.
