The sander you linked to would certainly do the job for you. However, if budget permits, the link that Gerry gave to the Ridgid sander from Home Depot is the one I use and I personally think that is the best value on the market!
Being able to swap from the spindle to the belt configuration is mighty handy, and you’ll likely use both on a regular basis. The swap takes less than 30 seconds!

I also have bought the kit from Harbor Freight and will ocassionally chuck the up in my drill press. And yes they do come in different grits to suite your needs.
Stumpy nubs also has a pretty good offering.
