Before applying a surface finish to your bowls, it is desirable to leave a surface without any visible sanding marks. This can be difficult using normal methods and all too often, tell tale rings are left to spoil your best efforts for a perfect finish. One of the best ways of eliminating this problem is to use a rotating sanding pad driven by the rotation of the lathe. By working through different grit types starting with the coarsest and applying light pressure, you can achieve a surface well prepared for the finish of your choice. The Axminster Deluxe bowl sanding kit contains two 70mm pads and two 50mm pads and a comfortable cushioned grip handle with an adjustable head for easy access to your work. N.B. Do not use heavy pressure or you will simply generate excessive heat which in turn could lead to the deterioration of the sponge pad. The abrasive discs will need to purchased separately.
