Re: Thicknessing on drum sander question

John K Jordan
I thickness sand with 60 grit. Works well. I'm not looking for a finished surface, just to make something the right or several somethings I want to be the same thickness.

I did this today for a number of 1x1" pieces of bubinga and guatambu. The sanded edges will be glued together and the 60 grit surfaces are perfect for this. I never tried any coarser.

If sanding a surface that will be finished and will show I use finer grit.

Performax 22-44
