No, but I went ahead and purchased one anyway.

I like the capability it gives me sanding bowls on the lathe.
The problems I have had so far:
1. The sanding bulb is hard to inflate using the air pump supplied.
2. The bulb that came with the unit developed a pin hole after a couple of sandings, but Guinevere replaced it no questions asked.
3. The flex shaft broke after about three sandings, but again customer service was great and sent out a replacement promptly.
Since getting the new shaft the sander has performed well, but inflating the drum and bulb can be tricky.
If they could improve the dsign on the inflating process, it would be a good tool.
It makes short work of sanding turnings versus all that hand sanding and doesn’t leave the sanding marks that hand held sand paper does.
