A little too vicious for removing varnish
, 27 Feb 2009
This review is from: Black & Decker 350 Watt Powerfile (DIY & Tools)
I purchased my powerfile yesterday for sanding varnish on my boat.
Last night, I initially tried sanding with the coarser belt already fitted to the powerfile. In the space of a fraction of a second, this not only removed the varnish, but 1mm of hard teak leaving a small groove in my wood.
You need the fine grade belt, the lowest speed, press very lightly and to move very quickly for removing varnish. Even then I would recommend practicing on something which does not matter first as it seems very fast!
You don't seem to be able to buy a finer grade belt than 120. (part no 3381)
