I use it to sand small project or when it need soft rond corners.

This looks very interesting, could be also useful for sanding inside of bowls. Thanks for sharing, I’m off to have a look at your video.

Sanding mops are very useful. I have bought some and made some the same way you show in the video.

I would be interested to know what blades you used and how long they lasted. I could see when yours started to get dull. I found that I needed to use quite a few to get it done. Did you find any blade or speed that made it easier?

Thanks for the video.

I know how well this works, when I saw the one you made back in 2010 I just had to make one for myself. Now when a belt breaks I don’t feel s bad.
Great idea!
Thanks for sharing!

I used srollsawblades for cutting metal… they live longer than the normal blades and stay sharp longer too.

I’ve made several of these, very similar to your’s. I like it when we can solve problems and use what we have available to do it.

Great idea for using old belts. These mops are very expensive where I live so it would be well worth the effort to make one. Thanks for the tip.
