Porter cable made one that I used once. It came with a vacuum and had a nice telescoping handle. I rented it because it was expensive to buy. I've also used a regular orbital sander hooked up to shop vac but you'll prolly ruin the sander with the fine dust...

The pros apply the mud so that it doesn't need to be sanded! . I am not a pro...

Check out your local paint stores. I know my local Sherwin-Williams sells a few.

I've done it with wet towel and pump sprayer with water. It works but if your not careful you will take to much off.

I'm not a professional., But I did stay at Holiday Inn Express last night.
