I draped the entry to do my front door and still had dust everywhere. This sander is a life saver if you need to get into tight spots. Of course, integrated nicely with the dust extractor. I'll press the on button and nothing will happen. Bought it to help with some pieces of furniture I was refurbishing.

The truth is that the BLACK+DECKER BDEMS600 was the Hand Held Detail Sanders that we graded at the top. Nevertheless, there were several other very high quality Hand Held Detail Sanders worth showcasing here that only just missed the mark.

Genesis is an additional leading producer of Detail Sanders. They produce the tool that is next on our list. Genesis's Detail Sanders are no exception. It was terrific to try out the GPS080. I was very happy using this tool!

The model GPS080 Detail Sander by Genesis, at $17.80 is a particularly great Detail Sander for the money. If you not sure about our number one selection, I'd consider the Genesis GPS080 next. It's a premium quality tool at a good price.

Sometimes I have to lightly tap it, and it will start right up. I was able to get between most of the lattice. This sander works for us, little heavy but great price. Use a file if desired to smooth the edges on both surfaces. The hose does not perfectly fit, but that doesn't matter.
