Stop in most any woodshop and you’ll find a random-orbit sander or two whirling away while preparing a project for the finishing steps. In the shop, these small hand-held sanders have assumed the majority of the sanding work – at least that of final sanding.

Metabo’s FSX200 is listed as a palm-grip random-orbit sander. Don’t confuse it with a regular 1/4-sheet palm sander; this is a true random-orbit sander. The palm grip describes how the sander conforms to the operator’s hand. It fits comfortably to say the least.
