Sometimes I’m a little bit lazy.
And want to do my sanding for small pieces the fastes way.
And here it is ….....
The sanding mop!!!

1. The sanding mop
2. Cut the pieces in length and cut small strips on the end and drill a hole in the middle.
3. Cut the head of a bolt and put them with the backside to eatchother.
4. Use some rubber spacers between them and screw an nut ion botb ands.
5. And ready to use…..

I made 3 of them with different grits 80 / 150 / 220
Also very handy with scrollsaw patterens

Looks like a brush from the drive-through car wash :-)

Bet it does a fantastic job, too !

Great thinking. Thanks for sharing.

Brilliant idea!
This I have to try.
But I think not in the car wash… Laugh.
Best thoughts,

Great idea! I always wanted to buy them but they’re quite expensive. This fits the bill.

That heaps better than the one I made, I cut mine into squares and well …. it ended up having corners and blank bits.
I will have to redo mine, thanx for posting.

By the way how long is each piece? How long is the cut? and last, how wide? This is a good idea..
