SANDERS TUBE SHAPED WOOD HANDY EASY TO USE KIT Whether you're a hobbyist or woodworking is your profession, you know that sanding is quite a chore. No more! My Canadian friend, Ken Laninga, creates beautiful walking sticks from Diamond Willow he harvests in Northern Canada. The process of creating one of these beautiful sticks is, as you can imagine, very time consuming and labor intensive. He'd nearly worn out his hands before a friend straightened him out by suggesting this incredible tool. Sanding with the Flex Drum Sander turns a chore into a pleasure. We liked this tool so much that we decided to make it easier for everyone to own one, by getting a dealership and selling them at a price "lower than the other guys". All you need to go along with it is an electric motor to mount the sanding drum onto; my friend, Ken, salvaged one from an old appliance(see note below about this). Here he is with his set-up. Note that he fastened the motor to a piece of plywood which clamps to the bench. He slipped some cardboard around the shaft, between the motor and the sander drum just to keep the dust out of the motor. In poor weather he runs the sander in the garage and uses a shop-vac to eliminate the dust. Get the soft foam padded Flex Drum Sander's results at a fraction of the cost! Use the amazing "FLEX DRUM"SANDER" for any project that calls for shaping or a "Rounded Over" effect. The specially designed metal shaft clamps to YOUR 5/8" motor shaft. (There is no motor included in the kit.) I Suggest a: 1725 RPM, 1/3 HP, 110v motor. (See motor ideas below.) Also provided is an adapter to allow use on a 1/2" motor shaft. The sanding drum is 2 3/8" diameter x 7" long and it simply slides onto the metal shaft. Each Flex Drum Sander kit comes complete with 3 foam padded sanding sleeves (1 coarse - 80 grit, 1 medium - 120 grit and 1 fine - 220 grit). The foam padded sanding sleeve simply slides onto the shaft.
