Jazz up your vibrating sander for professional results on curvy sanding jobs. Place a piece of carpet pad or computer mouse pad between the sander’s base and the sandpaper. If you like, use double-faced carpet tape to hold the cushion on the sander’s base. Now secure the sandpaper using the clamps on the SOFT PAD ends of the sander. When you sand a curvy edge, the soft base conforms to the curve’s contour. You can use the sander freehand on larger jobs, or, if your sander has parallel sides, gently secure it upside down in a shop vise or hand screw. This stationary sander will give you better control on smaller projects.
