  • Great Power Sanding Tip

    Hi,

    Watching Dixie Biggs Relief Carving Pt 1-2 youtube.
    Great tip - take a Dremel or any screw mandrel remove screw.
    Get Scotch Double sided foam tape and tape one side to sandpaper 180 grit or higher.
    Then hole punch out a small disk and tape the other side to the top of the mandrel.

        Not at the price of a sheets of sandpaper and double sided tape. The drums are cylinder and the pads are flat rounds.

          Another way is get a a small nail that fits in your collet or chuck.
          Hole punch the sandpaper a little bigger then the the nail head.
          CA or even Elmer's glue and glue the sandpaper disk on the nail.
          Galvanized roofing nails fit a 1/8" collet, and phosphate coated drywall nails fit 3/32" collet.

            Don't forget to buy and use a crepe rubber stick to extend the life of the papers.
            It will even suck shell dust out of a grind stone. Has saved me $$$hundreds in stones.

              Yup, I've done that before (grind stones) RV. It works a treat!

                I don't know what that is can you show pic? Or is that the rubber slab for cleaning the stones?

                  The soft rubber binds with wood fiber and seashell dust to restore the abrasive surface.
