Product Description

 
An extremely handy addition to any turner's armoury, the Sandmaster is used in conjunction with a lathe to put a fine finish on turned pieces. It eliminates the unsightly lines often associated with traditional hand sanding. As the disc is spinning it also reduces the clogging of the abrasive. The Sandmaster comes complete with a velcro covered 2" sponge pad which allows for the easy changing of abrasive discs. A variety of grits - from 60 - 400 - of aluminium oxide disc can then be quickly attached. The adjustable head which runs on a durable phospor bronze bushing lets the turner reach even the more inaccessable spots. As an optional extra, a 3" head and discs can be easily fitted for greater efficiency. The Sandmaster becomes an even more versatile tool when the head is removed and replaced by a pigtail mandrel and goblet or bowl mop. Made of fine grade cotton these mops are an ideal medium for buffing waxes and other finishes.
 

A further development is the Micro Sandmaster which utilises an interchangeable handle and 1" abrasive discs. This enables the turner to apply careful finishing to those more delicate projects. Details can be found here.

Useful tips :

  • regularly apply light oil to bushings
  • do not press on heavily - you will simply create excessive heat which in turn will lead to the deterioration of the sponge pad.
  • it is preferable to go through the grits from coarsest to finest applying light pressure - that way you will achieve a much finer finish.
