There are various handguided sanding and planing application.
A Planer is a tool for working on wooden surfaces. Whereas the sander processes the wood by means of the grit on the sanding paper, the planer cuts off entire chips. In contrast to standard hand-held planers, the power tool works with a blade shaft that rotates at high speed. It provides fast and precise planing with a high material removal rate. View all planers
A Belt Sander is used to quickly sand down wood and other materials for finishing purposes. It consists of an electrical motor that turns a pair of drums on which a seamless loop of sandpaper is mounted. Belt sanders can have a very aggressive action on wood and are normally used only for the beginning stages of the sanding process, or used to rapidly remove material. view all belt sanders
A Random Orbit Sander combines almost the speed and aggressiveness of a belt sander, with the ability to produce a finer finish. The random orbit is produced by simultaneously spinning the sanding disk, which ensures that no single part of the abrasive material travels the same path twice. This sander is very useful when treating two pieces of wood that meet at right angles. View all random orbit sanders
A Detail Sander is a hand-held sander that uses a vibrating head with a triangular piece of sandpaper attached. Used for sanding corners and very tight spaces. Sometimes known as a Corner Sander. View all detail sanders
A Sheet Sander is used to sand / smooth wood surfaces although they can be used on materials such as plastics and metals as well. The motor moves the sanding pad in a circular motion at high speed. Sheet sanders are useful, primarily as they require standard sandpaper sheets, which can then be cut to the size of the pad, generally ½, 1/3 or ¼ sheet. View all sheet sanders
