Quick Solution For Proper Three-Grit Drum Sanding Without Switching Between Multiple Drums !
The experts will tell you that achieving the highest quality, smoothest wood finish must start with a smooth surface. And achieving that smoothness usually means progressively sanding freshly sawn workpiece edges with coarse, medium and fine abrasives. Skip a step here and you'll get results that are less than desirable.
If the smoothness you seek is to be on a curved edge or surface of a workpiece, the best tool for the job will probably be a drill press-mounted stationary drum sander.
The Normal (Though NOT Ideal) 3-Step Changeover Process
First, install a coarse sleeve to remove the majority of the machining marks left by your bandsaw, scroll saw or sabre saw. Then, repeat the process by removing the coarse sleeve from your drum and replacing it with a medium sleeve for the next step. When you're satisfied with your results here, repeat the process once again by replacing the medium sleeve with a fine sleeve and complete your final step. Face it... that's probably more sleeve-changing than you would prefer. ...Right?
Multi-Sand Sleeves Eliminate the Changeovers and
Get the Job Done Faster !
What if you could cut those three installation steps down to just one - and spend more time sanding and less time changing? Now you can, thanks to Shopsmith's new Multi-Sand Drum Sleeves. Quite frankly, when we came up with this logical solution just recently, we looked at each other across the table, smacked ourselves in the foreheads and thought... “Duhhh... why didn't we think of this sooner?”.
We've had a 6" high drum sander for years --- and if you're like many Shopsmith customers, you already own one - so, “You're practically ready, Teddy” !
Here's How It Works (as if we have to explain it)
Take out your 6" Drum Sander (if you don't yet own one, see our special package offer below). Install one of our new 2" high x 2-1/4" diameter fine grit Multi-Sand Sleeves, sliding it all the way to the top of the drum... followed by a 2" medium grit sleeve, and finally a 2" coarse grit sleeve. You're done - and ready to start sanding.
Remember, your Mark V (or Mark 7) gives you 4-1/4" of up-down quill travel. That means you can go through all three steps of the sanding process on any piece of stock up to 1" thick by simply moving your quill down for each subsequent step. No sleeve changing, no fooling around. Nothing could be simpler... or faster.
