The Can't Miss Details

Achieving the highest quality, smoothest wood finish must start with a perfectly smooth surface. Achieving that smoothness (especially on a Curved Edge) usually means incrementally sanding raw workpiece edges with coarse, medium and fine grit abrasives. Skip a step and you will end up with poor results.

Without Shopsmith’s Multi-Sand Process, You Would Likely Follow a Normal 3-Step Changeover Process:
1. Install a coarse sleeve to remove the majority of the sawing marks.
2. Repeat the process by removing the coarse sleeve from your drum and replacing it with a medium sleeve.
3. Repeat the process again by replacing the medium sleeve with a fine sleeve and complete your final step.

What if you could cut those three installation steps down to just one — and spend more time sanding and less time changing? You can, thank Shopsmith's Multi-Sand Drum Sleeves!

Shopsmith Multi-Sand Sleeves Eliminate the Changeovers and Get the Job Done Faster!

Here's How It Works:
• Install a 2" high x 2-5/16" diameter fine grit Multi-Sand Sleeve, sliding it all the way to the top of the 6" drum followed by a 2" medium grit sleeve, and finally a 2" coarse grit sleeve.
• Attach the sanding drum to your spindle and you're ready to start sanding.
• Remember, your MARK gives you 4-1/4" of up-down quill travel. That means you can go through all three steps of the sanding process on any piece of stock up to 1" thick by simply moving your quill down for each subsequent step.
With no sleeve changing, nothing could be simpler or faster!
