Bowl sanding sanders

I've got some 2 and 3" sanding pads with the hook and loop pads and also the adapter for the drill. Now what kind of drill do I need to get? I saw one on a powermatic video but I could not tell what kind it was. I've always just hand sanded on the lathe, so advise and pics would help alot.

I use a cheap Black and Decker corded drill that I bought at a B&D outlet store for $14. Been beating that thing on the lathe for 3+ years now and no issues. I know some guys like the right angle drills from a comfort stand point, but I'm not gonna pay for one when the other works just fine.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Yep did the same, although I spent a lot more $19 It also has been going for about three years, Save your money for good gouges etc.

I Use a $60 Dewalt regular drill. I used to buy the cheap Black and Decker but I burned them up about once a year. I stepped up to the Dewalt and it's been running great for about 5 years now.
The angle drills are nice as far as comfort but apparently don't hold up any better than my Dewalt and cost twice as much.
I have some air sanders but at the present time they eat up too much air and I can't run them for long. I have a bigger compressor now but won't get to hook it up until I run a new 220 line to the shop.
