Good-Bye to Sandpaper GunkComments (0)
all sandpaper –
whether on belt sanders, orbital disk sanders or drum sanders – will eventually
collect glue, varnish or other “gunk,” making these machines nearly unusable.
So I’ve used sandpaper cleaning sticks to remove this unwanted buildup. While
working on a project recently, I was out of cleaning sticks and needed to clean
my last sanding belt, but didn’t want to spend an hour running to the store for
a cleaning stick or more sandpaper. Since most cleaning sticks are made of some
type of rubber compound, I liberally spread contact cement on a piece of scrap
plywood, let it dry and then sanded it off. Within a few minutes the sanding
belt was like new.
