December 2011's Quick Tip of the Month

  • Change Your Sandpaper Often!


    As sandpaper wears down the particles that perform all that sanding action become smaller; they become dull and less effective and while one might assume these smaller particles would simply deliver a finer finish, they instead leave a kind of burnish on your materials. So, unless you simply want to leave a “shiner” on your project, ensure your sandpaper is in adequate form.
