First Look at Bigfoot Products Super Sander.
David over at Bigfoot products was kind enough to send me one to test. The Standard Kit comes with two double sided disks. One side has a course grit and the other a medium grit. The kit includes everything you need to make the disk ready to in stall in your drill press or hand drill. The Standard Kit sell for $24.95. Extra disks are available for replacement. David uses high quality sand paper so they should last a good while. You can use a rubber sandpaper cleaner to extend the life also. My only wish for this product is that David would make another larger disk. I could use a bit more room but that's not a show stopper because this one still works well.
This will probably not be a tool you will use every day in you scroll saw workshop but I think for the low price it does have it's uses. You can get more detail at http://www.bigfootproducts.ca/
I have uploaded a video showing the disk in action. Take a look and see if this is something you can use in your shop.
