3" Sander mains supplied

I've seen some 3" mini air supplied sanders that lots of the fabrication guys use to quickly clean up the surface before welding.

I have opted for cordless tools instead of an air supply at home and have managed to find a suitable alternative for almost all the tools I want. Apart from a small sander.

Has anyone seen any small, relatively high rpm sanders that are mains supplied? 3" pistol grip or something along those lines?

Snap on, milwaukee and sealey do 14v lithium combination sander/polishers which do a similar job to the die grinder type prep tools.

They're dual speed, the high speed is a bit slower than the air equivalent tool, but adequate.

All of them are quite pricey, but there doesn't appear to be any cheaper options.

I have just spotted this, which converts a cheap cutoff grinder from lidl to use 3m roloc type pads which are commonly used in prep tools.

Likewise - does me just fine.

Worked in a machine and fabrication shop many years ago where they had a decent piped air supply and little air tools with sanding discs. Nice to use, but the firm had spent out a fair bit on kitting themselves out. For home use a flap disc in my angle grinder does the job.

Not the same as the DA in your linky, as it will only rotate, not to say it's not what you need..
