Makita makes a tough-as-nails palm sander. I've used and abused mine, but it never complained. It is strong enough to let you bear down on it when you want to.

I would go with a random orbital too, as chfite stated. I have a regular palm sander and havn't used it in forever. I like the porter cable random orbital best. It doesn't have varible speed, what thats good for I 'm not sure? But it does have alot of power. If that not enough get a belt sander.

Random orbital is the way to go, visit tools of the trade for a review of them
