sanding tools ?
i am going to be taping soon. i know how to minimize the need for sanding. but i will still need to be doing a lot of it. so i am asking for tool, tips, tricks for making the task easier. i have a rolling scaffold for doing the ceilings.

Sandng pole and pad.

Sand cloth not sand paper. Looks like screening but has abrasive on it.
Sanding sponges with an angle on one end for getting into the corners.
Any Box store will have all of it.
Got a lot of it to do then rent a power drywall sander. It sands and vacuums at the same time.

oh'mike 12-09-2012 09:52 AM are expensive but well worth the money if you have a lot of sanding to do---Velcro paper---huge sanding surface--rubber bumpers

Want to spend some money that's worth it?
Festool CT vacuum and ETS125 sander, almost complete dust free sanding.
If you really want to spend some dough, Festool Planex
Great tools, you can also re-sell on ebay for most of what you paid

thanx guys. i don't want to spend $$$ on this. so i am going to get the stuff joe said. i have been using a little block sander and doing well enough with it.
and i think the sanding stuff joe said will make things fast enough.

Joe's suggestions are right----there is a hand held version of the stick sander--uses the same paper---
