  • Sanding in small spaces

    Just wondering what people use to sand in small openings. I have read about

    Emery boards (finger nail) and they seem good but they don't state grit so I am not too sure
    rod and sand paper - I am using that now and it's OK
    mettle files - just read about these and I am thinking of getting some suggestions?

    Let me know of others or your thoughts on the ones posted.

    Hi Tig I use 240 grit aluminium oxide paper and a set of fine diamond coated small files of various shapes for getting into all the small openings

        I buy small sanders from MicroMark. They cater to the model train/car builder but some of their sanding and dremel stuff is awesome!
