A repurposed flush cutting blade helps reach hard-to-access sanding
Drawing of oscillating blade with sandpaper attached

For sanding those tight, almost unreachable parts of an assembled project, I repurposed a used flush-cutting blade from my oscillating multitool and converted the blade to a sanding tool.

After removing pitch and grime from the old blade and grinding off the teeth, I secured a piece of sandpaper around the end using spray adhesive. This "detail sander" makes quick work in tight spaces.
