  • Inflateable Drum Sander

    Hello; Does anybody know where to get an reasonable... inflateable drum sander? I do have a motor, but it seems every place I went they sell them with motors... and they are not cheap. Grizzily's was less than $200, but that is still too much. Anybody know where to try?...Bob

    Lonepine,

    Check out the Woodcraft catalog - they have had an inflatable drum you can chuck into a drill or drilll press, or probably attach to your motor (much better, since drills do not excel at side pressure stuff). You could get different grit sleeves, and a little pump for the inflating. Seems like the whole shebang was less than $50. Is it for intarsia work? I've been thinking...
    Good luck! and let us know - whatever you do.
    Sandy

      Inflatable drum sander crusade

      Sandy; Thank you for your responce, yes it is for intarsia. I did a few items and they turned out very well. It does take a lot of sanding thou. I did look at Woodcraft, and also found one at Rockler and Seyco... I requested catalogs, and they all seem resonable too. I wanted to speed up the process. Soon I will make a purchase...Thanks Again...Bob

        Are you looking for a complete unit with motor and all?
        I had not looked for one in some time, and notice prices have come down quite a bit. Oddly enough I found the prices on Judy Gale Roberts site were as reasonable as any. They had the drums and mandrels to add to your motor. Or the very nice Fordom Bench Lathe available.
        For well under $300 one could be set up with two drums.
        It would also be very adaptable to other applications too.

          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

          A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

          I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

          Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
