15 Aug Comprehensive 25 Piece Sanding Drum Kit from Garrett Wade
Woodworkers who don’t own an oscillating drum sander should be able to get by on most small jobs with this sanding drum kit (item 47B02.01, $39). It’s great for finishing pieces and parts with curves, circles, arches, inside corners and the like. It works in a drill press, a flexible shaft tool or a portable handheld drill. Just slide an abrasive sleeve onto one of the rubber drums and secure it by tightening the hex bolt on the shaft. That expands the rubber cushioned drums and locks the sleeve in place.
Five drums are included – 1/2”, 3/4”, 1”, 1-1/2”, and 2” diameter. There are also four cloth-backed, resin-bonded abrasive sleeves (two fine and two coarse) for each drum size. The four larger drums have ¼” diameter sgafts and the smallest one is 1/8”. A sturdy, hard plastic carrying case is also included.
One of the nice things about shopping through the Garrett Wade catalog is that the company has offered a 90-day money back guarantee and free returns since 1975.
