New tool lust, need help

john lucas
>I've been lusting after a 1/2" strip sander for some time. My friend Brad Sells has many but his are way out of my price range. I've been looking at the various air powered ones but I don't have a big enough compressor to run them for more than a few minutes. Enco has them for $59 and Grizzly for $49. That's just a little too high for something that will burn up my compressor if I use it for very long.

This morning I was at Walmart and they had a Black and Decker electric version for $39. That's in my price range but previous B@D purchases have me a little leary. Has anyone tried this thing? Is there anything else out there?
