  • For the intarsia folks - and anyone else who sands/shapes small things

    My daughter showed me these. I have Judy's bowed and flat detail sanders, but these work great, also. They are flexible, but firm and have good sharp edges. If they start to clog up - they're washable. I run some warm water on them and hit them with a fingernail brush. Cleans them right up.

    They are pretty cheap - we bought them at a Sally Beauty Supplies store at 79 cents each. I've seen them on Amazon, but I've seen some prices at $7.50 +/-, although that may be for packages of ten.

    Just another trick for the job.

    My wife still has her hair dresser license, she cuts my hair. So we go the local Sally's for her supplies. They have lots of stuff that is great for our hobby like small squeeze bottles, I will look for these the next time I go with her. Thanks for the tip.

      Small sanding boards are incredibly handy. With my musical instrument building I have ended up with a lot of offcuts of 2mm thick material and I use double sided tape to stick sandpaper to whatever shaped sanding board I need at the time.

              I was using my older Colewood Super pro II yesterday and I could not control the temperature. As soon as I turned it on the tip went to the max. I opened it up to have a look.

              It seems that new members don't present themselves in the new members section. If anyone spots a new member encourage them to introduce themselves in the new member section.

              I will send Kaylee a note to see who is overseeing the forum.

              As you know, we lost a ton of folks during the time the board was being redone and a lot of them ended up at the Village and have never looked back.
              As far as updates to the software, I am with Scott on having no clue. I do wish some of the old timers would check in from time to time, even...
