Default Does any one know this tool? "Wandit"

Hi,

I've had on my shelf a tool I purchased some time ago at a swap meet called a "Wandit" and it is Patent Number Des. 276,693. Under the patent it is described as "HAND-HELD FINISHING TOOL OR SIMILAR APPARATUS". The patent shows a picture of the handle only.

Basically it is a handle to which you attatch a long flat metal extention (came with it) that can fasten sand paper or a buffing cloth to it. It moves back and forth (in and out) and I would consider it something like a power file. It appears to be a power sandpaper finishing tool. It has several strips of sandpaper and a buffing strip with it.

The documentation with it refers to using it to do final sanding on a model.

The one I have looks like it has never been used.

Has anyone ever used one of these? Can anyone tell me if it is worth keeping?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Fly4Fun,

Wayne Miller

It was designed and made by a guy in Dallas, Texas. I belonged to the Dallas R/C Club in the early 80''s and remember him bringing one of the prototypes to a club meeting and demonstrating it. This early version didn''t have any cooling vents in the handle and got kind of hot. It seemed to work pretty well.
