Porter-Cable Mini Belt Sander

Great as belt sanders are, we find their bulk and heft limits where you can use them. Not so this miniature 5 3/4-pounder. Its 2½-inch-wide belt lets it slip easily into tight spaces to, say, sand a floor flush against a baseboard, trim a sticking door edge, or smooth a stair tread. Approximately $120; www.portercable.com
