on the sanding blocks... Sherwin Williams guy ask me one day some time ago to take this flexible sand paper and give it a try and let them know what I think of it.. It was quick some time before I went to give him my thoughts. So, he said lets hear it...First off I said I haven't been able to wear out that small two sheets you gave me and second though is it works better on uneven surfaces better than anything I have ever used.....period...It is pricey but I don't have to buy it very often. I read where guy had bought a machine to cut sheets of sand paper for his sanding block...I never realized anyone would spend money on something to do a simple task..I was shown this the first day I went to work at a furniture store in 1954 and still do this every day in the shop when using sanding blocks. I have 5 3M sanding blocks I bought around 1960 and 4 of them I still use all the time. One, a flap work out this year. A person will learn to keep different grits available to save time.. fold the paper over then crease it with the back of the rubber block a few times then fold it back over the other way a time or two then lay it on the edge of the table saw an tear it apart. I think this was a young lad on Superjocks wood site who had spent money to get his paper sized?? But I will have to use sizzors for this 3M p220 flexible stuff so there you go.
I had a little time yesterday after meeting my brother for lunch before I had to get back home. I hadn't been to Habitat for Humanity Restore for quite some time. Also stopped at the "Flea Market Warehouse" and one other small flea market...found these two "treasures" at H4H Restore. Spent a total of $1.39 including the tax. The blue sticker is discounted 20%. Always can use the "scotchbrite for something...Surform plane to turn quality lumber into chips faster thus saving time..."twin" for my 40+ y/o Craftsman version.
Got some for some hot water radiator covers I have that need cleaning up. Spent more than I wanted, but took a chance Those things are not cheap. Anyway They are GREAT~!! They don't load up, they don't burn, they don't get dirty. They are like new each time I present them to the work. It's like they are fresh out of the package no matter how I use them on layers and layers of paint and rust. I haven't worn one out, but I'm going to try.
