I just finished putting the Hope inertia sander through its paces on the urn shown in the attached photo. It did a great job in preparing both the inner and outer surfaces for finishing. I had never used this type of sander before but it was easy to use and find just the right positioning for maximum sanding efficiency. I also purchased the long handle and it was great for the interior sanding. I highly recommend both tools.
Very comfortable to use. I found drills too big and awkward.
I started out with a Robert Sorby inertia sander and it was absolutely terrible. It was overpriced and it was made cheaply. The Simon Hope inertia sander is absolutely superb I never respect. The Shimon hope is well made.
