  • Dremel Tool Flexible Sanding Disk

    I saw this sanding "screen" tool on one of Mike Stinnett's videos and I've turned the internet upside down trying to find it. if you see it in use, you will see that it is flexible and conforms to easily to irregular surfaces as opposed to the flat, hard sanding disks that are readily available everywhere.

    Hi John, These are not the same but I use them for clean up, they work well. I like that they are flexible. The mandrel is a bit different but wors well. it is sold sprit. From "Treeline USA. https://treelineusa.com/flexible-san...0-grit-100-pk/

      Thanks Randy - I looked all over Treeline and didn't see it. maybe I was just looking too hard.
      I'm placing an order this evening and I'll add this to the list - exactly what I'm looking for.
      Thanks !!

        When I was doing the cobra snake, I used the go-to sanding equipment: a sanding disc mandrel, a split pen mandrel, a drum sander, and a soft bowl-turning mandrel for one-inch loop sandpaper. All sandpaper and mandrels can be bought on Amazon in bulk starting at eight dollars. My sand wheels are often made yourself with your favorite sandpapers and how-to videos are on YouTube..... If you never used a split mandrel and your own paper it is worth trying out that one you also use your favorite sandpapers. I started using the bowl turning one-inch mandrels last few years... as you can control the back firmness with an outstanding smooth surface

          thanks DiLeon.
          I probably have a quart jar of grinders, cutters and stones. but I don't think I've seen the split mandrel before.
          this looks like a very simple tool to make for DIY projects.
          thanks for that little tidbit !!

            John, another option I use is, I get an assorted grit pad of non-woven abrasive pads. cut then into about 1-11/2 to 2" square and mount two of the cut pads on a large mandrel, the one with a screw for mounting, not the split. you can different grits running from 1500 to 150, just be careful, different companies, Norton, 3-m Scotch-Brite, etc. use different colors for the same grit .

              No need to reinvent the wheel. All above available at Riogrande.com. What is new to wood carvers like us is old to the stone cutters and jewelers. You will not believe the choices available.
