2 inch Diameter Bowl Sander with Dual Bearing Head and 2 inch Foam Hook and Loop Sander with 1/4 inch Mandrel and 9 inch Long Hardwood Handle

$35.03  in stock
as of January 14, 2022 7:31 pm

Features

  • When you need to finish sand the inside of your wood turned bowl it can be a challenge to keep the wood from showing scuff marks. Using a piece of hand held sandpaper can also be somewhat dangerous. Our bowl sander essentially fixes this issue by having a dual bearing, smooth rotating head that spins with the rotation of the bowl while the bowl is rotating on the lathe. The 9 inch long handle also helps keep your hands out of harms way.
  • The head assembly is completely adjustable so it can be set to any angle that you need depending on the size and curve of your project. Unlike most other bowl sander head assembly’s, our bowl sander has two steel bearings to provide you with super smooth mandrel rotation while sanding on your lathe. This also helps to reduce the chance of marking your wood since the sander will be rotating without hanging up or catching like so many other brands do.
  • It’s all about the pressure, or more like, its all about the light pressure and consistent technique. When sanding with the 2 inch bowl sander, applying too much pressure will likely produce some unsightly results. By applying light pressure and consistently moving the sander, you will achieve the results you are looking for and in a fraction of the time it typically takes when hand sanding your project.
  • The head assembly is also capable of accepting other size sanders as long as the mandrel/shank size is 1/4 inch in diameter. Please be aware however that some manufacturers say 1/4 inch in diameter when in actuality the diameter is either smaller or slightly larger. 3 brass bushings of varying depths are included to make fitting sanders with different length mandrels/shanks easy.
  • We have included the most common diameter sanding head with the bowl sander. This sander head is made from a foam material that gives just enough to provide you with wonderful looking results each time you sand your projects. This 2” head size works well on most bowl turning projects since it can work with larger or smaller work pieces. Also included 10 ea. 80 grit, 10 ea. 120 grit, 10 ea. 150 grit and 10 ea. 220 grit hook and loop sanding discs.
