This is a very handy tool to have. I use it on just about everything I make at one point or another. I think I picked mine up for about $100. I used it extensively to make all of my wing rib jig parts as well as to shape all the hundreds of gussets that go into the building of wing ribs for a Pietenpol. Another must-have tool. The only complaint I have for this particular tool is that the disk is held to the shaft with a set screw that seems to loosen. If you overtighten that screw it will strip out of the aluminum disk that holds the stick-on sandpaper. I keep the allen wrench for that screw attached to the cord for the sander and tighten when I start to hear the chatter on upon starting the tool. I consider that tolerable given that the tool works great and is pretty cheap.
