TALES OF WISDOM PART ONE: HIGH SHINE
If you would like to go to the point of sales directly, it would be THIS link.
Who doesnt know the feeling when you discover that the glue joint just shrunk? And of course you discover it right AFTER you applied the first coat of paint. Beside the fact that glued joints generally may have a tendency to shrink a lil bit, the issue highlights the importance of good surface preparation. Sanding materials which snug to the surface are helping us here. The sanding pads as well as the foam block are fit for this task. Once we have the general shaping in order, it´s time build up a satin finish as a base for the primer.
I recommend using the pads and the sanfding paper in combination with water.
Once the primer has been applied, we often need to build up high gloss. Thats when the higher grits come in. Especially when using metallic paints, a well prepared surface is key. Again I recommend using water. It´s extending the life of the product and is creating a more refined finish.
Long story kept short: This kit contains everything you need from shaping to polishing. We also have considered handling chracteristics of the set. You can stow it away like a book, ready for being used when needed.
As a final remark I may highlight the price point. Google "sanding stick" and see what you would have to pay for one alone. I think we have our homework done in this regard as well.
I hope you like it.
Thanks for your attention.
TALES OF WISDOM PART TWO: SANDING BLOCKS
OUH GREAT! FRIGGIN SANDING PAPER ON FOAM!... might some of you say when you see these images and you just want to just scroll further.
BUT WAIT SEC! There is some more behind it. DESIGN YOUR OWN TOOL!
Thing is, as long as I can think back, I have always built my own sanding tools. I have glued sanding paper on cardboard and fixed it on an electrical tooth brush (that works pretty well actually), I have bent some brass metal and wrapped sanding paper around it, tryinna reach into recessed areas and tricky corners…. I tried a lot. The problem was always to have the right amount of pressure. I mean normal sanding paper is just that: Paper. So, it is flexible. No pressuh! Know what I mean? Aight. Now here is what I found and tried, coming up with great properties and a variety of use, always following Uschi´s main approach to products which is “MAKING THINGS EASY.”
We are looking on set of four sanding sponges. These all Purpose Granat Abrasive Sanding Sponges are for either dry or wet sanding. It is ideal for sanding plastic and resin. The sponge can of course be rinsed and reused.
We have four sanding grades on four sponges. We go from ROUGH via COARSE and MEDIUM up to FINE. The FINE grit is bringing up things to a satin finish, so from there you could use a polishing stick for a high shine finish. (Our “HIGH SHINE KIT” which is also part of the “TALES OF WISDOM SERIES” named like that because the packing looks like a book and you can store it like one, would take you to a professional super gloss finish as well. Now, let´s come to the actual THING!
SPECIAL PROPERTIES: DESIGN YOUR OWN TOOL!
The kicker here is that you can literally create your own tool by cutting it to shape with a box cutter, blade and/or a pair of scissors, this enabling you to quickly design your own tool suitable for the task ahead. THAT is what makes the product really handy and versatile. It´s pretty much what I always have been looking for. Now I have pleasure to share it with you.
I made a research and I couldn’t believe what some companies are calling for this stuff. The bun was taken by the guys who were asking €24.90 EUR for a set of 6. That’s €4.15 EUR per sponge! We chop that down remarkably, asking for € 11.90 EUR the set of four, bringing the price down to a €2.98 EUR the sponge.
I´m absolutely convinced in you goinna dig these and I´m very confident of having again a great product for a cool price.
Thank you for your attention.
