Hand sanders and sanding pads help workers manually smooth and finish small, detailed, or odd-shaped wood, plastic, and metal surfaces. These abrasive items, which are also known as palm sanders or handheld sanders, allow for more control over pressure and intricate detailing than power sanders or Dremel-style tools. Keep a range of grit grades on hand with sanding hand pad and sponge sets, or store a large amount of the exact grit grade needed for particular applications with sanding hand pad rolls. Abrasive, hard-to-tear hand sanding pads last longer than sandpaper sheet, can be washed, and are ideal for heavy cleaning, deburring, or finishing. Sanding sheet hand pad holders and blocks distribute sanding pressure more evenly and offer greater efficiency on flat surfaces than sanding pads alone. Use a sanding sponge on contour areas. Steel wool can be used to remove rust and paint, clean, and get into tiny areas where sanding pads and sponges can't reach.
