>Just to follow along with the last question, I recently finished a bowl of spalted hackberry where I had to resort to MinWax Wood Hardener to get some of the end grain stiff enough to cut without tearing.
TD, I know you have used a lot of this or a similar product, I just wondered if you have had as much trouble as I had with the sandpaper loading up with the hardener? I haven't tried to clean it off the discs yet, but I may have ruined 8 or 10 of them on that one bowl.
On the next heavily spalted piece, I think I will try Wally D's white glue method. I'll report back on results.
By the way, TD, I really like the Milwaukee angle sander that I got from you at Southern States. Makes all the difference compared to sanding with a conventional drill.
