Nothing is going to beat wet sanding by hand on the top coats, but what about undercoats? Is anyone using an electric sander between color coats or the first few clear coats?

I know all the pro shops are using pneumatic random orbital sanders to do this, and Iíve read the Mirka electric sanders and possibly the festool sanders come close. Wondering if it might be worth it.

I've used a pneumatic palm sander for what you describe, but you have to be careful. Hand sanding lets you go slower, and avoid mistakes before it's too late.

I've also used the palm sander to wetsand, but I still prefer to do it the old fashioned way.
