The “One Minute” Finishing Kit using  ABRALON® Sanding Pads

“Stabilized ” Wood Finishing Guideline Steps - Sand your Stabilized material as you normally would to 180 or 220 grit.  Using the 500 grit ABRALON® sanding pad with your lathe speed set at approximately 1000 RPM, start sanding going back and forth over the entire pen blank with slight pressure for approximately 10-15 seconds.  Wipe off the pen blank with a clean rag to remove any residual dust that might be left on your pen blank and then proceed to the 1000 grit ABRALON® pad for another 10-15 seconds; wipe off blank and then proceed using the 2000 and 4000 ABRALON® sanding pads as you have just accomplished.  When sanding is completed, use the finish of your choice.

Exotic & Domestic Wood Finishing Guideline Steps - Sand your wooden material as you normally would to 180 or 220 grit.  Start by using the 500 grit ABRALON® sanding pad with your lathe speed set at approximately 1000 RPM and with slight pressure sand your material until entire area has been sanded.  Wipe off the material with a clean rag to remove any residual dust that might be left on the material and then proceed to the 1000 grit ABRALON® pad; wipe off material and then proceed using the 2000 and 4000 ABRALON® sanding pads as you have just accomplished.  When sanding is completed, use the finish of your choice.  Helpful Hints:   After each grit sanding pad, make certain to wipe away any sanding debris with a soft cloth prior to continuing on with the next step to avoid contamination scratches. Light pressure should be used to control the sanding pad. Do not push hard with the pad – it might put scratches into your work.  A light touch is needed. Remove the sanding pad from the surface of the material prior to turning the lathe off. To increase the life of your pads, flick them with your finger or use compressed air and remove the dust from the pads.   You can even soak them in water to remove any debris.

Trouble Shooting: Swirl Marks or Scratches In The Finish: Do not skip steps. Spend approximately the same amount of time using each sanding pad. Be sure too completely remove the sanding residue after each sanding pad before moving onto the next step.  If you do not remove the residue, it may cause some of your scratches! Lathe speed should be approximately 1000 - 1500 rpm. Do not use on extreme high speeds. 

*** Please Note: Not everyone's idea of a particular finish is the same. Fewer or more steps may be required in order to achieve the look you desire. It is a good idea to check the finish between each sanding pad until you satisfied with your finish.
