  • Probably old news to some, but maybe of interest to other

    Rocklers has some sanding stuff called "Sanding Twigs, 20-Pack" They are ±3/8" w x 6" long. I find them really useful at finishing time, when the tip I'm using get smooth, just clip it off.

    I want to see those. I have no objection to being "disposable" when worn down.
    I have a "sanding finger" (German?) which uses little 3/8" and 1/2" sanding belts.
    You can clean them with crepe rubber and rotate the belt as it wears. Pretty slick for what little sanding I do.

      Brian, I also have some small detailer like your talking about, these are from Micro Mark Tools & they also use little belts. I use them both but the twigs are use mainly at the end of the carving process .

        Brian I also see at the bottom of the page the finger stick I think you are describing. I can see how both would be a great asset in finishing. Thanks for the heads up!

          Thank you, Joe for posting this. I have used these for several years and they are just so handy for so many projects. I like to do miniatures and these are handy for that, I really like them for cleaning up the little places on carvings, and I have some I carry in my purse, better then an emery board because I can choose grit. I didn't get mine from rockler though, I got them at a craft store, I think Michaels.

            Perfectly ok to provide a link in response to someone's question. Those look like they might be useful...
