Hey everybody, I'm looking for some advice on detailing really tight areas. My new job involves the complete restoration of historic windows. So far I'm doing pretty good with sticks of wood that I bevel on the belt sander. Sometimes they mix epoxy with 2-part putty to fill small cracks better and this forms blobs that can be easily chiseled.
I'm wondering if customizable contour sanding pads would be a good way to go. There are carving tools that have up to 450,000 rpms but this might prove to be overly pricey and impractical. There are some places so tight on the arched tops that the smallest dremel bit wouldn't fit to the best of my knowledge. :sick:
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

With out any pics of what you are doing, are you doing the trim? Do not leave gaps that you have to ask about.
