  • What a haul

    Being the well coordinated person that I am, I knock one of the high intensity/magnifying lamp off my carving desk .
    I spent two days trying jury-rig the light to another light/magnifier that I was using. About that time my wife came in and said -you got a birthday coming up next month, You pick out a new light and I will get for you.(What a gal)
    I felt that maybe a floor lamp would be better. WOW the price they are asking for those high intensity lamps. I found a twin headed mounted on a tripod, 48LED,1558 lumens, 5600K out put. How sweet lots of light and little or no heat. At about half the price or better than those other floor lamps

    Then the mailman show up with a box from MI. (the kids). Well there was no instruction not to open, so what di I do .

    The last time we out there I was doing a carving for the stair post and I asked Tim if he had a small sander, He broke and a small had held sander. It was a Craftsman 3-D sander. A small hand held, three rotating, wobbling sand dish, variable speed. I feel in love with it, but guess what the don\\\\\\\'t make them any more. I had though about and was going to try and make one out of a norelco shaver this summer. But Tim is a guy that goes to a action at least once a week. Well you can guess it, that was what was in the box. he bought it at an estate sale still in the box and the cord still had the cord tied around the chord.

    Lots of chin flapping going on here, here is some picture of my booty.

                There has been so much chatter on this web site about the Flex-O-Sander,in any of the hardware store, that I started looking about six months ago. could not find any thing in local hardware store, the clerks just kind of looked at me, what is he talking about.

                Any The internet provided a source, but I didn\'t like the plastic models. Then on E-Bay I found and older metal model and was able it get it home for $25.00 . Anew 320 grit cartridge cost me more than the unit itself.

                L am quite happy with what I have got, ····but I might take the wife to dinner, Ya I know, what a guy .

                  Hi Joe
                  I have the plastic model, been using it for over 9 month, purchased it from supergrit.com, two 320 grit refills for $20.
                  I love it, also use creape rubber stick to clean the paper. I work a lot with eastern white cedar, flex sander makes the cedar easy to paint, less fuzzing up with first coat of paint

                      Don\'t worry about the plastic model Joe; I bought one 8 years ago and use it a lot. I\'ve gone through 5 refills so far and haven\'t had a bit of trouble. If anything were to happen to mine I\'d have a new one ordered before the sun set that night...:-)
