    Looking for three head sander

    Has anyone ever seen or used a sander like this? I read that it was a Craftsman sander that Bob Vila was selling on tv years ago. Thatís about the only thing I've found on this thing. I looked online to find more info but nothing turned up. I would like to get one of these to try out.

    Reminds me of a Norelco shaver. Also there are some floor sanders made that way with 5" or bigger disks.

    Just curious, what’s the advantage of a sander like that - if you could find one? Abrasives for it might be hard to find as well.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    It does look like an electric razor, and like that Iím assuming that each of the heads float or pivot independent of each other. Iíve still never seen one or been able to find one. Thought maybe some folks on here might be able to help out.

    Is this what you are looking for? I just saw this and vaguely remembered reading this post.

    I have one just like this one. It was a Christmas gift, many, MANY years ago. I used it years ago, but not since.

    i bought one from Sears a million years ago and still have it. I think I tried it on a handrail but haven't used it since. I don't think it is orbital. Now I would use a ROS with a pad, I have 3" 5" and 6". Dave
