What is this sander called

I work in a tool store and I had a gentleman come in and ask me if I had a drum sander. I said no I don't, he said the one he is looking for is not the one on a table. The one he is looking for is hand held. He said it looks like a rolling pin, and a air hose goes into the right hand handle with a trigger. In the center of this rolling pin is a spindle (or a sanding drum) when you pull the trigger the drum spins. He said it is used to sand the neck on banjos and guitars. I have never seen one or know the name of this tool. I hope someone can tell me the name.
Thank you
Lee

I don't know of a pnuematic model, but Porter Cable makes a hand held oscillating spindle sander. Only place I have ever seen them is Amazon.com

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

yea that a nice tool. I would think it's for smoothing edges and to reach or lay on unnatural points or as the ads says too large object for standard sander.
