  • 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.
      black is my favorite color, gold just looks gaudy

        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.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
