orbital mending plate

I tried attaching a mending plate to my quarter-sheet orbital palm sander, but it didn't do anything but cut my thumb! (The injury was during installation; once in place it was actually quite secure.) I think the problem was that the little sander didn't move the abrasive surface enough in comparison to the distance between points on the mending plate. I think a device with a larger orbit would be pretty cool, though.
