Neat little sander...

Recommended Posts

I bought one of the PediPaws for my two dogs. Unfortunately, they can't stand it. However, all hope was not lost. I found it to be a very useful for rough sanding (burrs and such). It has a low enough speed that it is very easy control and I would suppose be safe for kids. I got it at Walgreens for under $20.

Hey Chris, same here, my dogs can't stand it either, only I am not going to say "unfortunately" like you said, this thing will be part of my modeling tool arsenal!!! :lol::lol: My wife bought this thing about 6 months ago and it didn't cross my mind to use it for modeling, thanks for the idea!! :lol:

I bought a Wahl battery sander a few years ago and then bought their electric sander. Both work great and have different grits of paper that can be attached as well as some files.

I have a Braun Oral B battery-powered toothbrush that I sand with. It's easy to pull the bristles out of the used replacement heads and use some RTV silicon to glue little hand-cut discs of sandpaper to them.

The RTV dries adequately in about five minutes, and I can set up several grits ahead of time. That way, I just swap the heads when I'm ready to go from using 400 grit to 600, etc.
