There are also adhesive backed sanding discs that go on a shaft/disc you can buy. Two sizes 5mm and 10mm. A pack comes with 96 5mm or 24 10mm
400-1000 grit.

Thanks Steve, I'll have a look. I'm loving the sanding pen, I have a selection of burs that fit it perfectly. I used to spend forever using them in a pin vice, no more!

Mine is still on the way. So you can do fairly tight detail work with it? There's not too much wobble?
 I was just hoping for something less cumbersome than my Dremel/flexshaft set up

No wobble at all that I have noticed, that changes when I use the adaptor chuck I ordered. I did some (for me) very tight fettling with it yesterday that needed good accuracy and it was fine. I had a little play using it as a mini lathe with 3mm styrene rod, this was great too. Again the story changes with the cheap adaptor chuck I have, possibly me not getting the part centred properly in the jaws. I think you will be very pleased with it.

Found one on eBay and I am watching it. Ill order one if you all write here how amazing and indispensable it is in practice and that you use it every day  :)

Andreas, this tool is one of the best things to come along since sliced bread. Im very impressed with it and honestly wish Id had it a long time ago. I sit at my modelling bench a lot and since obtaining this tool, have used it quite a bit. I cant recommend it enough.
Cheers,
Gary

Thank you Gary!
Ive been already convinced and am waiting for my pen to arrive from China via eBay.  :)
A friend of mine has some other tools from the same brand. They all seem to be well made and worth a try.

Dispiae does make good stuff. I have their circle cutter and it performs perfectly. Not inexpensive but well worth the price. They have other tools that I'm not sure of their practicality but appear to be well made as well.

Mine works great, but likewise, I do get some wobble with my cheap adapter.

Is there a better quality one out there?

OK, I ordered one through evil-bay, and wouldn't you know it . . . the seller absconded with my money. I got a refund, but now I have to find another one. :(

 This adapter would be more accurate than the Jacobs chuck adapter as it is like a pin vise. The problem is the shaft measures 3.17mm
 (1/8th inch) whereas the DSPIAE tool only accepts a 3mm size shaft. Therefore, the shaft would need to be precisely turned down on a lathe. More information here.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/403394348671?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D777008%26algo%3DPERSONAL.TOPIC%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20220705100511%26meid%3D257c15717aef4a85b7b8f28c97485792%26pid%3D101524%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26itm%3D403394348671%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26algv%3DRecentlyViewedItemsV2&_trksid=p2380057.c101524.m146925&_trkparms=pageci%3A9d43dd99-ec2c-11ed-a9a6-26b6e16da952%7Cparentrq%3Af1ef0b2a1870a60c035fb589fffeb508%7Ciid%3A1
    Note: The problem with the cheap Jacobs chuck drill adapter is that the shaft is not really 3mm. It is slightly undersize which causes the wobble.

    I got mine from the same retailer as did Gary, and it is a very nice tool. The only shortfall I can see is the 3.0 mm shank requirement; I have a huge inventory of Dremel accessories with 1/8 inch shanks on hand that can't be "chucked' in the tool. I'm hoping someone comes up with a source for an adjustable chuck that will solve that problem. For now I'm limited to the basic bit set made by DSPIAE which are also excellent products.

   As an alternative solution, .17mm is .0067 inch. That is barely more than the thickness of regular paper. The DSPIAE could be easily drilled out to .125 (1/8th) inch. Or would a .125 inch reamer produce a better result?
