  • 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?

      its an option on some sanders.

        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.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

              I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

              To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

              I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
