Hand sander recommendations for sanding stair risers
I usually post in Home Decor but have a quick and urgent question! We are getting all of our hardwood floors refinished starting Thursday and before then I need to sand the risers so I can paint them later. To save money, I'll be sanding and painting those myself, but the pros will sand and stain the treads to match the rest of the floors in the house.
What brand and type of sander (and what grit of sandpaper) do you recommend for this job? I am a musician with carpal tunnel and need to avoid this kind of work by hand, which is why I'm interested in the hand sander option. I looked at the B&D mouse sander, and also at a B&D Cyclone, but that one seemed too good to be true for the money ($49.99). Ryobi also had a mouse sander that would allow me to get in the corners.
Very interested in any feedback you can provide...thanks!
