to Make a Good Fillet Sander
We've all figured out how to wrap a piece of sandpaper around a dowel, pipe,
bottle or whatever is handy and about the right size in order to sand
I've done the same for a long time, but the sander is usually difficult to
grip which makes controlling it that much more difficult.
Additionally, the sandpaper can wrinkle and cut grooves or take gouges out of your work.
I finally got fed up with the nonsense and decided to do something about it.
I got this idea from a commercially made sander molded from rubber that has
the same approximate finished shape.
While I'm sure that sander works fine, I've only seen it in one or two
sizes. You can make this one from scraps around your shop in whatever
sizes you need.
Take care making these tools and they'll last a long time. It won't take long
before you have a collection for almost every circumstance.
