Thats a great idea. Anytime we can get a cool new tool that most homeowners don't have in their house, we do it. Our latest was a new style pole sander that is circular and the paper velcros to the base and the thing swivels 360 so we no longer get that deal where the old rectangular pole sander flips over and gauges the wall.

I also use the "swiffer on a stick" to wipe down walls



The Dust Eater looks like a combination Swiffer and Auto Windshield cleaner







The big thing is, I don't think I can wear a hardhat using the swiffer
It's way to butch



I might start wearing one while detailing the van now though

I also use the 360 disc sander. Wish it held screens though.
I did get my hands on one of those, but did not purchase one (or haven't anyway)
Lack of screenage and a little pricey were my thoughts
A retail price of about $12 less (and possibly if I was in the market for another pole sander-I'm not) I might have bit

Wow. I expressed some interest in this thing yesterday and in todays mail I received an informational brochure from Wooster about it. Someone over there in Marketing is really on the ball!

how the heck do I get on a test team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I signed up for it on another paint forum a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. That forum is all but gone now. The test team lives on though to my surprise. I hadn't heard nor seen anything from them in over a year, but in early Dec. I received a case of blue painters tape, 12 1" rolls, and 4 2" rolls to evaluate. I wish they would send me some roles of plastic to test drive. :laughing:

I love the 360 sander, the ability to put in on an extension pole and be able to sand everything from the ground is awesome. I gave away my sanding poles.
