Always wear a dust mask when sanding. Orbital sanders An orbital sander is used to sand large surfaces. It has a relatively large sanding pad that moves at high speed in an elliptical motion (tracing a circular path). This form of sanding means that an orbital sander can be used for a wood grain in any direction, but it does leave small circular marks on the ﬁnished work. While this may be acceptable on wood that is going to be painted, these marks can be unsightly. To minimize this problem, the random orbital sander (below) was developed.
In preparation for this, ﬁx the angle of the honing guide to 30 degrees so that the bevel will lie ﬂat against the stone. Set the width of the honing guide. This measurement must be the same as the width of the blade so that the blade will be held securely in place. Lubricate a 1,000 grit stone (such as the diamond whetstone, inset). To start honing, work the underside of the blade from side to side to remove any burr formed during grinding. Starting with a backwards stroke, move the blade back and forth over the stone with ﬁrm, even pressure.
Hole for cutter Hole for pivot Radius of cut TRAMMEL Cut the MDF to size – it should be the same width as the router’s sole plate and slightly longer than the diameter of the curve. Drill a large hole at one end for the cutter, and a small hole at the other for the pivot. Drill countersunk holes for the screws that will ﬁx the trammel to the sole plate. Ensure that the large hole aligns with the cutter. Insert the screws so that they are ﬂush with the MDF. Plunge the router and start the cut. It is simpler to do this in sections to prevent the cable and extraction hose from becoming entangled.
