Manual Angle Sander ( Finished )


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone ;

 

Beside ship modelling, I love to make something useful for myself from wood. So, I needed an angle sander for Taka's windows. I have a disc sander but, really I don't like it. Guess, I like to make it harder way.. :) 

So, here is the progress .. 

 

First of all, I really don't know why, made a sides of box. Used 4mm plywood.

When dried, determinated rail way.. And glued.

And from now, it's just about to good looking. 

First, making Angle Markers. Will use 2cm brass for 90, 45 degrees. And 1 cm for 15, 30 and 60 degrees.

I saw this technique in Remco's HMS Kingfisher's log. Just wanted to give it a try. And the result is awesome. Especially, on irregular surfaces.

Will add some mahogany as a frame..

Well, not much to the finish.. 


From now things are getting complicated.. Used varnish for table..

And use PVA for assembling sides and table..

Started to make holder for the rail car. Plywood has nice pattern, so made sandwich from 4mm Plywood.

By the way, I'm cleaning my sand papers and sand sticks with an hard eraser. It's very handy. I have using this stick for a long long time. Is theere any other way ? If so, please let me know :)
