a 1/2 inch belt sander that can pivot the belt angle can be pretty handy too. I've found it super handy for tight spaces and inside/blind corners. This cheap one from HF has held up ok for me, though the belt hops off easily. Makita makes one too for about 200 bucks more.

I call it "mr nibbles"

For hard to reach areas I used this one, similar as captsuperfly, because the angle grinder really does a lot of damage if you touch something you didn't intend to touch which happened to me in some hard to reach areas but still goes rather quick through material.

Where do you get this one? I have the makita 1 1/8” but this looks like it will get into much smaller spaces and is more maneuverable
