Unsure whether it was just myself or if the tool was actually broken, (does anyone else have this problem?) I packed it up and headed down the street to the local Home Depot, where I happily accosted unsuspecting sales associates in the tool department and made them take a look. The universal answer, after it had been passed from hand to hand, was Broken. Double Pout!

I spent the afternoon sanding with these little sand paper drums. They worked beautifully on the concrete and I only caught my cuticles twice. I probably should have worn safety goggles (squinting doesn't really work to keep concrete grit out of the eyes), but all and all I emerged happily unscathed and triumphant.
And as it turns out, once you've worn the little sanding drums down so that they don't actually sand anymore, they become buffing wheels. How perfect is that?
