Grizzly has an Internet special until 9/13 on a palm sander that sounds pretty good. I don’t know the machine, but hey, for $28 delivered ($20 plus shipping), it’s hard to go wrong.

Hook & Loop “orbital palm sander” that has a sole plate that reseambles a steam iron. Also includes 9 sheets of abrasive and a dust collection bag.

Just a heads up that will expire in less than a week.

Tomorrow is the last day. Although, I have not heard any good stuff relative Grizzly hand tools. They do not seem to have the same reputation as their large machines.

Do a search on grizzly and quality. The uniform opinion, mine included, seems to be that grizzly hand tools are of low quality. Actually not worth the price, at any price. The pain and frustration of using them far out weighs the small change you think you might be saving.

As I said, I don’t know the machine. I know numbers of folks who swear by their Grizzly lathes. I know more, however who swear AT their Grizzly lathes. 8^)

I like my Porter Cable palm, personally.

I have the trim router they offer for about $29. It works fine for a tool I only use 3-5 time a year.

I’ve got the 1/4 sheet hand sander. Came with a dust bag. I think it was $15 at the time, about a year ago.

I’ve used it a bunch, especially on thin woods because it is so light.

I think I’ve gotten $15 bucks of use out of it and it’s still going strong.
