Default Has anyone used this product?

Woodworker's Supply sells a product called a "robo sander". It is basically a sanding drum (comes in different sizes) that fits in your drill press. What makes it different is that it has a bearing on the botton of the drum and is used for pattern sanding. It works like a flush trim bit, except is is a sander. It seems like it would eliminate the possibility of tearout like that encountered when using a router to flush trim tricky or end grain. Has anyone used this and, is so, what do you think of it?

I've used it for a couple projects. It works fine. Saves some time.

I use them and like the results. They're perfect for working on patterns or just sanding in general.
