electric sanders

I had a pacemaker procedure September 12th.  I need to use an electric sander.  I was told by the nurse that it is okay to use if I keep it at arms length.  That pretty much makes it impossible to use.   Does anyone have experience of using a sander?  Thanks.

If you pace with rate response, the vibrations may trick the pacer into thinking you are working out and raise your rate. Nothing else about it should be unsafe. Some motors have magnets that could potentially be a problem, but if you keep it 6" from your device it will be fine.

I use mine all the time, and have had no problem.

Any small tool (and much larger) is fine.  I use them all the time.  I wouldn't sleep on one but not because I'd be afraid for my pacemaker.

Thank you for all your responses, and for putting my mind (and heart?!) at rest.
