Also known as broadleaf maple or Oregon maple, big leaf maple is light reddish-brown and fine grained. Pen blanks are beautifully figured and stabilized with resin to ensure smooth turning and a finished product that can be polished to a gleaming finish.Technical Details Resin-stabilized figured big leaf maple Approximately 5-1/2" long x 3/4" square
A terrific value at almost half the price of 6 individual sponges! Each sponge features medium grit on one face and edge, while the opposite face and edge has fine grit. Flexible core conforms nicely to turnings, moldings and other non-flat surfaces. They also work well on flat surfaces, especially between coats of finish, where a harder block would sand through the finish. Ideal for light to moderate sanding of wood, paint, metal, plastic and drywall.
The generous dimensions of these shimmering iridescent blanks make them ideal for our Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoop Hardware Kit (34360, sold separately), and our Pizza Cutter Blade Kit (34913, sold separately). They also make great tool handles and turning stock for other projects wider than a pen blank. Approximately 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 6".Technical Details:Blank measures approximately 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 6"L.Turns very quickly; take care turning with light pressure.Blanks can be finished after turning by sanding to a fine grit and then polishing on a buffing wheel with Corian polish, buffing compound or Hut finishing blocks.Each blank is sold individually.
Rapid strip discs offer a semi-flexible open web design that resists loading, conforms to edges, contours and uneven surfaces without gouging, and runs more quietly. The abrasive is uniformly distributed and bonded throughout the wheel for aggressive removal of paint, rust, coatings, light edge burrs, parting lines and flashing. Norton Blaze discs features ceramic aluminia grain, which boasts twice the cut rate and twice the lifespan of silicon carbide. Both the face and edge of the wheel can be used. Use with an angle grinder for removal of paint, rust, coatings, light edge burrs, parting lines and flashingDiscard mount for easy wheel changesType 27 wheel shape (essentially flat with a depressed center)Blaze ceramic aluminia grain boasts 2x cut rate and 2x life over silicon carbideAdvanced resin bond does not shed on rust encrusted pieces, prevents gouging, and does not snag when used for deburringNew coating process covers the entire disc for a more consistent cut rateOpen structure will not clog when used with sticky coatings, adhesives and soft metals Benefits of Non-Woven Discs vs. Fiber Discs, Wire Wheels, and Grinding Wheels: Deburring, blending and finishing can be done with one productPrevents undercutting and gougingProvides a cooler grinding action to lessen the chance of warping or discolorationReduces loading when working with fiberglass, adhesives and soft metalsExcels at stripping coatings and paint off of hard materials like concrete, cement and stoneLess vibration and less noiseSafer than wire wheels
