|Tips: Dish-mop Sander|
Tip of the Week: Dish-mop sander
For anyone who has arthritic fingers or has trouble holding small pieces of abrasive, try a dish-mop sander. It can be used on the lathe or to sand small boards or edges. Buy an inexpensive dish mop, remove its sponge/scourer pad, and replace that with a piece of high-density foam. I glued self-adhesive hook and loop to the face. Any cloth-backed
abrasive can be attached. It is a quick-to-make, effective sanding tool.
