This is a serious project for serious woodworkers. I needed to sand some serious details too small for hand sanding so I seriously scratched my head and thought about a flatter wheel . I knew if you cut cloth sandpaper it would work but I needed to attatch it to a wheel to go on my serious drill. I took baltic birch and glued it into a 1/1/2’’ blank turned it on my lathe to get the perfect circle then cut some serious slots or radials on my very serious bandsaw to insert the sandpaper . I thought of gluing but then I decided to put it in some serious compression with a finish nail and it works like a charm similar to bisquits and gravy or thunder and lighting. One serious trick is to drill a hole with the nail first then hammer it in and it will hold perfectly. I have several now all different grits. Can you belief it “All this and Heaven too”

Seriously this looks really good. Besides sanding, It can also be used to slap someone’s face 80,000 times a minute. Perfect for girls dating woodworkers.

Norman , it seems alot of work but it’s not and also it saves so much time sanding your project it is an investment.
