Providing a finish to your wooden materials – electric sander

Know about of a sander

The use of power tools have become a common practice even for our normal routine works. Moreover, these machines have become so compact and easy to use that the idea which used to make a noisy disturbance with the name of a power tool has vanished. As sander is a power tool used to sand rough surfaces for giving a smooth finish by abrasion using a sand paper. A sand paper is attached to wheel of sander and is moved rapidly using a mechanism within housing and fixes it to a workbench.

Sanders are of different kinds depending upon the usage and the difficulty level of the task to be performed. First of all comes the disk sander, as the name suggests, it uses circle shaped sand paper. They are commonly used as stationary machines. They are used for both rough as well as fine sanding. Second type is named as belt sanders. These are also called stationary or hand held sanders. Other types can be drum sander, oscillating spindle sander, orbital sander, detail sander, stroke sander, wide belt sander, straight line sander etc. all of them are task specific. Let us discuss some of them in detail:

Choosing the Proper Finish for Your Woodworking Project

Different types of finishing projects include varnish, shellac, lacquer or polyurethane. In addition to that, you might also need putty, wood filler, polish or wax. There are so many products available on the market, that it might be difficult or rather confusing to choose the right product.

To stain a wood, means to add color to the wood without covering up the grain – the core difference between staining and painting a woodworking project. Pigmented stains are made when a pigment is combined with a liquid. A pigment is a dry powder, containing the color. This is mixed with a liquid, which includes a binder, which helps the pigment stick to the wood surface. The binder works with a carrier so that the pigment does not dissolve the binder, but are suspended in the liquid. Today we are fortunate to have an array of colors to choose from if we decide to stain a project. Many years ago, available colors included only yellow, red or burned charcoal, because it was made from different types of crushed rock and clay.  

A dye stain is a type of stain that allows the wood grain to show through the stain. The main difference between a pigment stain and a dye stain is that dye stains dissolve in the carrier instead of being suspended in it. Therefore, it can easily penetrate the wood surface, for a totally different look than that of a pigment stain.

To achieve a more even stain color, a gel or water-based stain can be used instead. These stains only penetrate the wood slightly, to minimize uneven coloring or blotches. To make sure if you have the right stain and color for your project, apply the stain to a piece of scrap wood to examine the result. Softer woods like cherry, pine or birch, are more difficult to stain evenly, and a gel stain or water-based stain should be used instead.

Porter Cable air compressor failing to cut on at the low pressure cut in value when driving a finish nail-er.?

This Porter Cable Model C2005 6gal.2.6 SCFM fails to reliably cut on when the pressure drops to the cut in point. It seems to try several times before it finally cuts in. It then reaches the high pressure point and cuts off. Then it seems to be purging the air. When it works well I don’t hear that noise. What do you think the problem is? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

How do I polish to a mirror finish, 60-62 Rc D-2 tool steel in a 1/8" diameter ID using diamond compound?

A dowel is not rigid enough to apply the pressure needed to polish this ID. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
