U Beaut Rotary Sander Kit


Stock: Available

Product Code: 01-141

The Rotary Sander Kit consists of a 75mm low profile “VELCRO” faced sanding head, the shaft of which is precisely machined and attached to a right angle hand piece housing two sealed bearings.

The kit is supplied with concise instructions, and comes with 10 X 75mm diameter sanding discs (2 of each in the following grits), 80, 120, 180, 240 & 320.
Kit also includes a bonus a 50ml bottle of one of our friction polish either: Shellawax, Shellawax GLOW or Aussie Oil 

Using the Rotary Sander:
For face plate use,
 attach the work piece to the chuck, start the lathe so that the item to be sanded rotates at a moderate speed, as dictated by the size of the work. Select the lowest grit number and place the disc on the “VELCRO” face sanding head, as sanding progresses, proceed by using the finer grits in sequence.

To make the sanding pad rotate, it is simply a matter of placing the disk in contact with the revolving work and slightly tilting the pad on to the surface of the wood as it spins. Slight compression of the foam head combined with variations of the contact angle will result in the desired sanding effect.

One main advantage is that the velour discs do not wear out as fast, compared to power sanding. another advantage is that you do not leave scratches in the surface of the turned object because the surface is sanded by the generated speed of the lathe, not the controlled speed of the power tools. The speed of the sander head and work surface are matched. It is important to note that the direction of the rotating head can be changed simply by contacting the surface of the rotating work at a different angle it can also be used as a hand held non-rotating sanding pad
