It must be a lot of chip out if sanding it round isn’t enough. We’re you going towards the corner and chipped that tip off? If so go from the out side in at every corner.
Not me Bob, in my hands a belt sander spells disaster. :frown:I just use a belt sander for any thing like that. I take off all excess with 60 grit which eats the wood away fast, then sand properly with 240
plan ''B'' and ''C''???....Not me Bob, in my hands a belt sander spells disaster. :frown:
(linisher) Harry, the word linisher is a new word for me and I had to look it up. I would like to have one if it had a variable speed motor. Nice looking boxes as always.These shots show how I clean-up splines and box joints. When I mention "belt" sander, I refer to the linisher (disc/belt sander), not the sort that we have races with!
Harry, a variable speed motor would slow down my screw up so I could see it better. >Don, why do you think that a variable speed motor would be better than a fixed speed one?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Linisher)
Linish is an engineering term that refers to the process of using grinding or belt sanding techniques to improve the flatness of a surface. The flatness may be two-dimensional, i.e. with the view of achieving a flat plate, or one-dimensional, e.g. with the view of achieving a perfectly cylindrical shape. The machine that does this may be called a linisher or a linish grinder. The technique may also be used, with finer grades of grindstone or sanding belt, to polish a surface.
Don, I use an ROS on mine, and it seems to work fine. A belt sander would work too. I stay away from the benchtop as I always go too far, I prefer the hand held type. I have also used a sherp chisel and a block plane, but always seem to gow up a spot or two and have to sand it out, so just stuck to the ROS.Harry, a variable speed motor would slow down my screw up so I could see it better. >
