Fab tip: Using sheet sandpaper on a hook loop DA sander
Polishing some surfaces require a DA (dual action) sander. If you have a hook loop setup (or others I’m sure) and don’t have the grit you need, you can use low tac spray adhesive to glue flat sheets onto a spent hook loop disc and finish your project.
A couple more pics, but this really is a self explanatory process for anyone that owns one these sanders. I hope it’s useful to others.
Just a thin coat of adhesive is required, make sure to keep the spent disc away from the sander while spraying, air tools don’t like adhesives.
Ready to go in less than a minute.
The sheets are easy to remove so one spent disc is all you need for repeated use.
And this is the finished project that inspired this hack. A damaged 3D printing bed that needed to be flattened out for a client of mine, 1200 grit smooth and ready for printing
More to come.
