  • What is this tool?

    Sorry but I can't even post a pic. I've seen it in magazines, though. Looks like a long, thin bar of spring steel that you can attach a strip of sandpaper to. I wanted to try to find one but Google isn't much help if I don't know the proper name.

    Hmmmm.... this is difficult.

    I suspect it's a gizmo, but it might be a widget.

        Thanks, Carl. They are similar. The one I'm trying to find has a simple clamping mechanism on one or both ends and is a straight bar. I've not seen the whole length of the tool so I'm not sure if there is a handle of some sorts on one end.

          Mike, that is either a wachamacallit or a thingamajig and it's used for sanding an object that smells real bad.

            I think this is what you are looking for. I thought it came from PS Woods but I don't see it on their web site.

              Mike:

              This is a wild asp guess:

              Try this site, http://www.mcmaster.com/

              do a search for: abrasive strip holder.
              On the bottom of page 2576 there seems to be something like you have been describing.

              Don't know if this industrial site will sell to general public. But maybe as a business owner of your web site?

                  Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                  So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                  I like the fact...

                  Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                  Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.
