Topic tags/keywords: drill extension tool sanding

Hello, I am looking for an extension to hold sanding tools with a round shank. I use the tools to sand bowls I have made with a router. The sanding tools I use are short and it is often difficult to reach deeper areas.

I am not able to purchase a system like the Guinevere sanding system.

EDIT- The tools are mostly about 1/4 inch. Some are about 3/8 inch.

I have a 6” and 12” version of these. Careful not to get the ones designed for hex, but get it for round, then you can get a 1/4 shank in and tighten up the allen bolts.

if you are going to be doing a lot of these projects,
I would look into a flex-shaft that would suit your projects (and budget).
Harbor Freight is $50 and the better name brands up to $400.
pay attention to the handpiece – some do not have the 1/4” shank capacity.
much easier to control than a small wheel on a long shaft in a hand drill.
