  • 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.

              I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

              The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

              Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
