Default Angle Sander?

Sorry I couldn’t think of a better title, but I’ve watched a number of WoodTurning videos where they use what looks like an angle drill, air powered with roughly a 1-1 1/2” diameter sanding head while the project (usually a bowl) is turning on the lathe.
Can anyone direct me to that kind of tool/machine?
Thanks folks.

Dynabrade is the go to industrial level tool.

With all of them you need a decent sized air compressor. The sanding attachments are separate and different companies have their own velcro or threaded locking socket / stem so you need to get their abrasives. 3M is a place to start with.


I'll add that you should get one with a rear exhaust. It will blow air out past the hose attach point instead of around the head. Keeps the oil from getting on the work.

For the discs and pads I have the Ultimate sanding package in both 2” and 3” from Woodturners Wonders (also a great source for CBN wheels) and I use a Harbor Freight electric angle drill (not the grinder) I bought at an estate sale. https://www.harborfreight.com/38-in-...ill-60610.html

I should have mentioned the Ultimate Sanding System is hook and loop so any hook and loop (Velcro) sanding pads will work. I’ve even taken abranet sheets, cut discs from them and use them.

I only have a 2 gallon, 135 max psi compressor. Should I be looking at an electric one instead?

Air tools usually need a minimum 4 cfm to operate. Your compressor is too small. You'll need to use electric like the one JT linked.
