Tiny detail sander

After very recently trying to deal with sanding into very small spaces, including trying the various Dremel accessories etc.  I just happened to be surfing around the web for something completely different, and happened across the idea of using an electric toothbrush for very fine detail sanding.

So a quick google search later, and seems to be quite a popular activity!  Because it oscillates, it could prove to be quite an effective sanding pattern without cutting circles everywhere.

Not sure if there is enough raw power in a toothbrush to do any significant material removal, but as a concept it is a rather clever repurposing!

By cutting off the bristles, and gluing on a small velcro pad, small disks of sandpaper can be easily attached and swapped as required.
