VELCRO SANDING PAD 75MM
Tim Skilton from Australia is a smart woodturner who knows his stuff. Having worked with inferior product he developed these sanding pads for our drill. It's no surprise that as they are built to last they cost more! The angled head reaches where others fail and it is made from the best available materials so that it resists heat. This means the hook and loop stays on. Even better news is you can replace the hook and loop unlike the competitors!
1) It has a hex shank so it won't slip in the drill.
2) It has the right combination of flexibility and toughness.
3) Tapered sides make it more flexible and enables it to be used in areas like undercut rims of bowls.
4) The are manufactured by a woodturner. Not by an engineering company.
Instructions for Use:
To sand a bowl, install the POWER SANDING PAD in an electric drill and attach abrasive disc. Set the lathe speed to approximately 500-600 RPM. Set drill speed to 1000-1200 RPM. Sand using LIGHT PRESSURE allowing the abrasive to cut. Use a coarse grit (60-100) to remove all tool marks then progress through finer grits until the desired finish is achieved. To replace the hook and loop, cut off the old hook using a sharp knife. Cut close to the old surface to save as much rubber as possible. Glue on a new hook and loop using a heat resistant contact adhesive.
