  • WTB: Sand Flee black fence

    does anyone have or know the location of a black aluminum fence for the Sand Flee drum sander?

    all they offer now is a gold fence and i would rather have a black one
    (please dont say to just paint it or re-anodize it)

    where would I find it on my machine? I'm not sure mine even has a fence. Just curious - why don't you want the gold one?

        Theresa, it's sold as an option. It allows you to use the SandFlee as a jointer, and it works very well. It's perfect for truing up strips cut on the scroll saw, so you get a glue-ready edge, and is safe for pieces that are just too small for a regular jointer. I have the 9", and it's not really appropriate for larger pieces, although the ads suggest that you can use it that way.

        Ironically, I bought the SandFlee so that I could get a smoother face on my blanks, but between the fence and the keyless chuck I'm using it more for jointing and sanding than for it's original purpose.

        And my fence is gold, which color coordinates with my gold Powermatic band saw, and contrasts nicely with my orange Hegner. Whoever said a shop had to be boring?

          carole, what do you use your keyless chuck for?
          im thinking about getting one and would use it for a sanding mop
          but not sure if it would work better on the sand flee or on a drill press?

            Northerner, I use the keyless chuck for my sanding mops and for a small 4" long inflatable drum. I've also used them with the drill press, and I find that certain projects do better with the horizonal orientation, and certain ones do better with the vertical. However, if there would be a lot of lateral pressure on the drill press, I would use the SandFlee to save wear and tear on the drill press.

              Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
              a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
              Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

              They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

              Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

              Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

              I found this information on fuses in general.

              Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
