Prevent Paint from Clogging Sandpaper

Sanding Your Boat

If you are sanding to remove large areas with a belt, orbital or vibrator sander and paint builds up quickly on the sand paper.

Dampen a cloth with kerosene and wipe over the area that you want to sand..

It absolutely prevents the paint from building on the paper.

I never came across that one, will try it someday.

Another tip to the same end: Abranet 'sandpaper' by the company Mirko from Finland.

It is a fine mesh really, that allows the dust to pass through the material very easily.

Absolutely fantastic especially on orbital sanders and also for hand sanding.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
