Very happy
Terrific on long, flat sections on the lathe. Smaller curves, not so much, and using genetic drum sander paper on it is great.

Works very well on turnings and finishing solid edging on plywood. Quick to setup and keeps fingers away from spinning wood.

It helps with this new woodworker
Had planned on making one but this was a much better choice. Have found that cutting some bands ahead in varied grits is nice,may on my next Rockler order may purchase a second one and keep two grits ready to rock and roll.

My wooden handle bow broke. Giving this a try.
Robert D on Nov 27, 2018
This is my second Sanding Bow, having bought my first whilst on holiday in the US. The second Bow will allow me to use 180 grade in one and 320 in the other which will speed up work rather than having to change grades . If anyone is thinking about buying one, don’t think just order, they are a must in any workshop.

Can you use this on a lathe?
Walnut on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: NO, it is not intended to be used on a lathe, that is considered a safety hazard.
