Description

In Detail

Following the success of the drum sander bobbin set, we have sourced these individual bobbins with which to make your own sanding devices. Mounted vertically in a drill press or drill stand, with the addition of some simple woodwork, they make an excellent bobbin sander. Alternatively, they can be mounted onto the end of a small motor or in the lathe, making an excellent contour sander with endless applications. The bobbins use 75mm wide abrasive strip, held and tensioned in place with an elliptical locking key. Available in four sizes: 25 x 75mm, 50 x 75mm, 63 x 75mm and 75 x 75mm. Supplied with a 120g loading and a choice of two supplied spindle adaptors (held in place with a grub screw). These may be withdrawn leaving a 12.7mm(1/2") hole suitable for mounting onto the spindle shaft of most small 230V motors. N.B. Maximum rotational speed is 1,500rpm.

Works great, saved aload of money...

Instead of buying an expensive spindle sander (the cheapest at £100), I thought I would try these sanding drums first. So glad I did! I make wooden jewellery and have quite a few curved designs, this simple tool allows me to sand all my inside curves - an absolute nightmare by hand. Being sleeveless was the thing that really sold it to me. Finding fine (240+ grit) sanding sleeves isn't easy. With this I can use my normal sandpaper (obviously it's recommended cloth ones are best) and not worry about having to find the correct sleeves. Just cut the paper to size (using the sandpaper that came with it as a temp) and fit it around the drum, insert the oval tube and lock in place with the supplied key. Easy!

I'll probably buy some more so I don't need to change paper when I need a different grit. Too bad they don't make smaller sizes, maybe I'll try making a simple version myself for smaller jobs.

Works Well

These work very well with a thinner, cloth backed abrasive - I use 120 grit. Great value for money.

Fantastic value and works well

I use drum sanders to finish curved areas and this by far the best I've tried. The paper stays in place and best of all you can use just about any sandpaper with it.
Good quality and well worth the money.
