Sanding abrasives and tools

At our monthly woodworkers club meeting, Mike from Klingspor gave an excellent hour and half presentation. I learned more about the fine art of using the proper sanding grit, kind of abrasive, types of sanding media, and how to properly use various sanding machines. I even got a hat. One of the things in the demonstration was the proper use of a random orbit sander. I bought one today, used it as shown in the demo. Very aggressive with 80 grit, nice with 120 and beautiful with 150. My wife took one look at the final sanding finish, took the sander with her to one of her projects to try it out. I may have to make another to the woodworkers store. Oh well.

Ooh! You got a hat! That's fancy!

Also Klingspor gives presentations? I would love to hear one of those. Lucky you!

"Dreams are stronger than poison and seize more firmly than disease, once captured one can not escape. It's a real curse, but for adventurers who are dedicated to it, body and soul, people without dreams are more frightening than death" (Made in Abyss). The Twenty Seventeen anime of the year, it definitely deserves that award. It's a show you don't expect to throw you off as much as it does. It may be Moe but it's certainly not lighthearted, just the opposite.
