Proxxon disc sander works horizontally or vertically

Proxxon disc sander

My homemade second-hand 1" belt sander gets a lot of use in my shop, but I could use something a little more precise at times. This bench sander fits the bill perfectly. I'm adding this to my wish list. I have two Proxxon benchtop tools -- the table saw and miter saw. These tools are, in a word, awesome. I have a lot of faith in this brand.

From the product description:

For all types of wood, steel, non-ferrous and precious metals, plastics, plexiglass and fiberglass. Vibration-free running due to a powerful and balanced DC motor housing made of fiberglass reinforced Polyamid. Aluminum table is adjustable to include 50 degrees downward and 10 degree upward with miter gauge. The adhesive sanding discs can be easily removed after use. Two additional square silicon sheets ensure that used discs can be stored and reused as necessary. Proxxon Disc Sander can be mounted horizontally or vertically to a table or work bench.

Here's what the sander looks like when mounted to the bench in the other orientation:

You forgot to state that it is variable speed. That is an important feature for model making. Low speed is what makes it possible to sand plastics.
