Hello again guys..
Can someone go over proper use of sanding sponges? Specifically, how
much pressure should be applied when sanding, does motion matter much
(as long as the pad is against the surface), how to detect when the
sponge needs changing. Lastly, when using the wet dry sponges, can you
use them immediately after washing (on wood) or must you let it dry.
This is my opinion for the soft sponge blocks..
Enough pressure should be applied to conform the sponge to the surface
being sanded. Then treat it like a contoured block, that is move it
only along the object .
Realize that were more pressure exists the sanding action will be
faster. So if you are sanding an ogee edge the top of the curve will
have more material removed.
Dry, allways sand wood dry.
Dry. Indispensable in contour sanding. Sand along the grain. One of my
favourite ways to sand.
The sponges are not all created equal. The denser ones are better. HD
sells the good ones around here. The ones from the Dollarama suck; just
not enough wholesome sanding goodness.
I have tried them wet on solid surface and body filler without
