Sanding and polishing bright work is never easy, especially if there are details in the woodwork itself. Black & Decker’s new Zone-Touch Mouse makes sanding and polishing easier, as this innovative product can accept multiple finger detail attachments via the unit’s Velcro bottom. Simply select the attachment that best fits the bit of detail work that you need to sand or polish, attach the appropriate grade sandpaper, and have at it. Best yet, the Mouse has an LED “Zone Touch” indicator that immediately lets a user know if he/she is applying too little—or too much—pressure. $39.99.
