Pg1 Sanding

Sanding Your Carvings

One thing I have never enjoyed is sanding, so I try to make it as painless as possible.
I have found many different tools that I like to use to sand my carvings: 

Sand-O-Flex Contour Sander

This is really good for finish sanding irregular shapes. I use this sander a lot to sand the "fuzzies"
off of my carvings. It looks really aggressive. But it actually is very gentle on the fine detailed
carvings.

 Sand-O-Flex™

You can chuck this sander up in any drill. I have an inexpensive inline air drill that I use it with. This
drill has a max rpm of about 2400rpms which is just right for sanding with the Sand-O-Flex

 Air Drill with Sand-O-Flex™

For a little more aggressive sanding I use a "mop sander"  Which is basically a mandrel with
cloth-backed sandpaper mounted on it. The sandpaper has slits cut in it. If you want a wider
mop then space the sandpaper with some washers. It is important to note that when you start
with new sandpaper it takes a little time to break it in. Running it against the edge of a scrap
piece of wood helps to break it in faster...

Mop Sander

I also run this sander in my inline air drill.

I also have a flex shaft rotary tool that I like to use to get into some smaller areas. I use it with a small
mandrel and a smaller mop sander. I also like to use abrasive pads. I cut out a circle and mount on the
same mandrel.

Flex Shaft with Mop Sander

Here is a picture of the abrasive pad on the left and the mop sander on the right. These are about
1-1/2" diameter. On the right, you can see how the mop sander is simply made up of strips of
cloth backed paper.
