Metal backer on sanding pad is the same size as the pad so it hits anything you are trying to sand in tight places When sanding in a corner, the sanding pad fits nicely into the corner Velcro wears off the pad in fairly short order

The wood blade works very well for difficult cuts Harbor Freight blades work as well Semi-circular blade for cutting through shims and trimming is thin, bends when heated up Can buy blades at Harbor Freight pretty inexpensively
