A detail sander is a small, handheld power tool that is designed to sand and smooth small or hard-to-reach areas. It typically has a triangular or rectangular shaped sanding pad, which allows it to access tight corners and other areas that larger sanders cannot reach. The sanding pad vibrates rapidly, providing a smooth and consistent finish on wood, metal, plastic, and other materials. Detail Sanders are often used for finishing and refinishing tasks, such as removing paint or varnish, smoothing rough edges, and preparing surfaces for painting or staining. They are also useful for intricate woodworking projects, such as furniture making and carving, as they can easily reach small crevices and curves.
