Different Strokes A
You've probably seen a rotary llap sander on a drill press or in a portable drill. Now Makita's #9741 Wheel Sander takes that approach in a totally new power sanding tool. It uses a 43/4-in. wide, 4-in. diameter sanding wheel made up of many individual radial sandpaper Maps. It's a heavy duty sander with a 7.8-amp motor for rapid, aggressive stock removal. The sanding wheels are available in four different grits. The tool also accepts other rotary accessories— nylon brush wheel, wire brush wheel, and cotton buff wheel. The nylon wheel is great for accentuating wood grain. (Price: $616)

Ever wondered what wood turning is all about? Here are some invaluable information on how to make beautiful items out of wood! That one little strategy from A Course In Wood Turning that I implemented not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. I had never seen anything like it! Now, keep in mind that I had tried a lot of other products up until this point. You name it, I probably tried it! That’s how desperate I was to improve my skills with wood turning.
