Sanding Bow
Excellent tool. Used it the first day I got it and found it easy to use with outstanding results. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought one for my son for xmas.

Strongly recommend you buy the multi roll sanding pack to use with this product. It is real time saver and offers the needed grits for your projects.

Very functional. Much more ergonomically correct than my old fashioned technique of grabbing with two hands and pulling back and forth like shinning a pair

Sanding bow
I saw the need and got one. Use it to shape knife handles. Sure saves my finger tips. Rounds of the square shoulders and makes it easier and faster to keep things even and balanced.

Sanding Bow
This item works great on my lathe. It conforms to the bowl or spindle shape nicely. So much better than holding the sandpaper by hand. I would highly recommend this for lathe work.

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.
