I am buying the new black and decker "Mouse". It is a little hand sander...looks female friendly! hehehehe (ok...ok...I use all kinds of power tools...but appreciate the more "friendly" tools) I had a little glaze problem in my kiln and am going to use this to grind off the glaze bits and reapply the kiln wash.
Hope this helps.
(in case you are wondering....I am buying this with my own money...about $40.00 at Home Depot...but I feel my peace of mind is worth $40.00 (please no jokes about buying a piece of my mind!)
