  • hand sanding alum. wheels?

    Hand sanding is such a pain. Can I do it by machine? The wheel has compound curves and I was wondering if there are any thing that would work with a machine such as a electric drill?

    i can t remember last time that i sanded a piece by hand ,to me any hand sanding makes no sense and it s a total loss of time .
    there are many Tools out there that can be used to do the job, drills , sanders, variable speed polisher sander, air straight die grinders, air angle die grinders.
    then you have just about evrey possible size and type of buffing wheels that you can use with greaseless compounds of different grit size.

      Since the wheel has curves I can't see using a sander because there are curves to deal with, and its the same way with my DA, which is flat. The wheel doesn't have flat areas as do many wheels. If anything I would need a sander that would accept sandpaper that would be no wider than 4" so I can sand around the rounded areas such as the lip of the wheel.

        without a picture i don t know whart your Wheel looks like but i can say that on most wheels there is areas that can be done with a da sander , for the rest of the Wheel you can use buffing wheels with greaseless compound with your choice of grit .
