What purpose did you buy this for?

Leather gloves will absorb some of the vibration, although sometimes you can find better products made for the purpose.

probably around 80 grit to prep for primer for paint on gelcoat, get an angle grinder, with a 120 flap wheel to remove nonskid (assuming it's the painted on variety) your toy will take forever to remove the nonskid, unless it is in extremely bad condition. Spend the $ on a good respirator.

Your neighbors at the marina will also appreciate a vacuum cleaner attachment and a shop vac.

New power tool -- Very cool!

I'm in the market for one. How did you settle on this particular model?

Anybody have suggestions? Buckeye, are you familiar with these?

Gloves also save the hands when it gets out of control. watch the loose clothing, gets painful when the t-shirt gets caught !

Woodworking stores and probably others sell padded open finger tip gloves that have a vibration absorbing material in the padding. They work very well if you holding a sander or similar tool for much time. They are about 10-20 dollars. I have used them for years, bought them at Woodcraft.
