  • Sand Flea Sander

    I decided to buy a Sand Flea sander and now I can't find any advertised for sale. Do they still make it? Who is selling them? Thanks. Pinegal

      Here is a link Artha

      Not sure why the link says Artha but it takes you to the Sand Flee page at RJ studios.

        Another source for surface sanders. Same type as Sand-flee, but from Canada. Prices are cheaper but good quality - you may gett a charge for customs.

          Be sure to read everything about the Flat master from Canada..It does not include the motor.

            The Sand flee uses Baldor motors some of the best in the business.

              Thank you all for the info. I found the RJR site. $1,177.95 but it doesn't describe what you get for that. Are there any supplies included. And the shipping is unknown, just whatever it costs. Makes me a little nervous. Is this the only place you can buy it? Has anyone ever seen a used one for sale? Thanks, Pinegal I

                  Personally I would get a drum sander before I'd get a Sand Flee. With a drum sander you can dimensionally finish your wood to thickness where the Sand Flee cannot guarantee a uniform thickness. Rockler has the Jet 16/32" drum sander for roughly the same price as the Sand Flee. Jet Plus Drum Sander 1.5HP w/Open Stand (16-32)(629004K) - Rockler Woodworking Tools
                  The also have a smaller one in the $800.00 range.

                    Pinegal, have you called or e-mailed them?

                    Tom, I now have both a Sand Flee and a Supermax 19-38 drum sander.
                    They are entirely different tools. I can sand my delicate fretwork on the sand flee, I can also sand a very tall box edge on it. I can do neither on the drum sander.
                    I use the drum sander for critical dimensioning on thin wood where it would be dangerous or destructive to do it in the planer.
                    My sand flee gets used almost every time I work in the shop.
                    And the drum sander saved my project when I made the last clock where I had to thin the curly maple frame.

                      Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                      Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                      HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
