panel glue off sheet rock

i am working on the walls of my house i just boaught. i took the paneling of my walls and the glue is still on. i tried using my little hand held sander but it just isn't doing the job. since i don't have the funds to tear down and put back up what is the best sander to use on sheet rock with out ruining it?

sanding wont be an option. the glue is harder than the sheetrock.

Most of that kind of glue is tough and is tough to get off the rock. You may have to take a putty and scrape it off and very possibly it will pull the paper off the rock where the glue is. You can come back and mud that back in and sand when dry and hopefully save you a few bucks. Let us know what you decide to do and how it comes out.
