I’ve been looking at the products and kits avaiilable to sand the inside of the bowls that I turn. I’ve looked on line for ideass and have seen many creative ways of making devices to go on drills. I simply took a 1 1/4 wooden knob that I had laying around along with few household items and came up with this. It’s similar to some that I’ve seen on various sites but did not require the use of wood and extra drilling ,etc.
I fixed the screw in the knob then cut off the head. I cut a rather high density closed cell foam that was part of a camping mat and glued that onto the knob. I had round velcro from a previous project and glued that onto the foam The hooks of the velcro face out and I cut some used self attaching sandpaper that came from my orbital sander. Seems to work well considering it didn’t cost me an arm and leg. I plan on making more with different size knobs.
