sanding mop

does anyone have experience using a sanding mop, or similar device, on routed profiles?

curious what you have found for good models, how much it rounds over, grits, etc.?

I haven't used one, but I've read that they will diminish the sharp edges of the routed profile. I feel your pain though, sanding those profiles takes all the fun out of sanding. Wait a minute, there is no fun in sanding......

Long ago,when I did a lot of profile sanding--I kept a tub of bondo in the shop---fill a Baggie with bond--press it into the profile--let it get hard--instant profile sanding block.

One time at HF, I picked up some sanding sponge type things, soft and with different grits and they conformed to the routed edges quite well.

My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.

great idea. I bet water putty would also work - it's probably about 320 grit naturally. Maybe adding abrasive powder before mixing could bring it a little lower.

thank you for all of the replies. actually we found that if you route a piece of scrap with the same bit, it serves as a sanding block (in this case). wrap 180 gr on it and go. we are doing volume and need to replace hand sanding with a machine, if possible. that is why I am asking.
