From the Publisher
The Wood Sanding Book explores abrasive materials, machines, and methods. Compiled from the research and experience of veteran furniture maker and author Sandor Nagyszalanczy, this book is designed to expand your understanding of abrasives and the multitude of jobs they can perform in the workshop. You'll learn how to accomplish these tasks efficiently and get good results whether you work by hand, by machine, or a combination of the two. You'll also learn how to remedy common sanding problems and prevent them from happening in the first place. Power tools for sanding go way beyond the belt sander. This book gives you valuable guidance in choosing from an extensive array of modern portable power sanders and stationary sanding machines. It also shows techniques for using this equipment safely and effectively, including a discussion of dust-collection strategies so you can control the clouds of fine dust produced by these machines, to keep your shop cleaner and your lungs healthier.
