My design goal is to improve the efficiency and longevity of the palm sander. The redesign of the architecture will create a more comfortable time of use. The changes of the internals should decrease the sound the sander created as well as help for easier cleaning. Externally, easier buttons will be added and another grip will be added also to give the user the best and easier experience with their project.
