Multi-tools, an option to consider
To finish, it would be wise to make a small reference to the multifunctional tools. It allows sawing, cut, cut and sand with precision, thanks to its delta. They are a good option to consider.
Types of sandpaper
The dogfish are distinguished by their shape and the amount of grain they own. The shape can be determined for each type of sander. It can be cut as we want from a sanding roll . As for the grain, the smaller its number, the more material it removes . Although it seems strange, it is because this number measures the amount of grains included in a square inch of sandpaper. So, if there is less, it means that they are larger. Therefore, harder when working. A sandpaper of 200 leaves a very fine finish, very polished.
To place them, in most sanders -with obvious exceptions such as band sanders. Simply attach them to the base of the tool , to which they adhere using a velcro/zipper system.
The duration of the sandpaper depends on how much we use them. Also with what type of sander and on what type of surface. In addition, for a clean job, most have a built-in vacuum cleaner that absorbs dust through the holes in the sandpaper. However, if the sander has an adapter for external vacuum. It is advisable to add it. Since it works with greater power and can absorb splinters or loose grain. Thus preventing them from circulating freely, causing damage , between the sandpaper and the wood.
Surely you already know which one best suits your needs.
