Right-Angle Drive

With a houseful of millwork and cabinets to finish, you'll need a sander that can work all day without overheating. A right-angle machine, with its horizontal, barrel-style body, runs a powerful 3.5- to 5-amp motor at a relatively slow (and cool) 5,000 orbits per minute. Higher-priced units have precision bearings and better gears that vibrate less and last longer.
