  • Sanding mop speed on drill press

    I just purchased a sanding mop that is appropriate to use on a grinder or drill press. I assume since most grinders spin at 3000 rpm + that I should set the drill press speed up high also.

    Any words of wisdom?

    One piece of advise I can offer up. KEEP THE PIECE MOVING!!!!!!!! If you hesitate, you will get gouges in the wood. This is from experience. I run it at full speed on my drill press (about 3000 RPM) without problems.

      I can't remember where I read it, but I seem to recall that mine should be 2350 max. In any event, hang on. Even so, you will probably launch a few things across your workshop if you get the end into the mop.

        This is a Quote from the Stockroom supply Web site for their recommended speeds.


        "One thing to remember about the mop is that speed is the key. The faster you spin the mop, the longer they will last and the better they will work. 6" mops need to be spun between 2000 and 3500 RPM's. 4" mops need to be run between 4000 and 10000 RPM's. Cordless drills and some electric drills do not have the required RPM's to achieve optimum results. "

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver.

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.

          I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
          But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...
