    What about the Vibrator sander that's been around that you put a 3 X 10" piece of sandpaper on. Does that sander fall in the category of an in-line sander? I think it does, because it's using a 60 Hz single axis electro-magnet to move the sanding surface back and forth. Let me know if I'm correct. Sears and Black and Decker have been making these for 50 years and I thought they were the most common of the home owner sanders.

    Interesting that you used the worst tool Bosch has ever produced to explain sanders. I gave that sander the worst [Amazon] review I've ever given a product. The push button hold system just doesn't hold paper. I went through two of them and had the same problem. In fact, many others did too, because it was stated as being a problem common to that, specific quarter sheet sander.
