Hardwood sanding tricks on a lathe??
i keep getting ''scratches'' that are a pain and time consuming to get out, any tips or tricks? i only make nightsticks on my lathe so that is what im referring to
basically what i do is start with 50 grit on the shaft... 80 on the grip then work my way up as high as i need to but sometimes i have scratches left over from the initial 50/80 grit phase
i use belt sand paper cut so i can slide in under the piece then i stand above it and slide it up and down the length .... for the detail cuts and grooves i use sponges of various grits
am i just being impatient and stop using the 50 grit all together??
