Easy-Off Sanding Sleeves

I couldn’t live without my spindle sander for super-smooth sanding on the inside curves on projects, but for years I dreaded changing spindle sizes. That’s because it was difficult to tighten the bolt enough to expand the rubber drum, so the sanding sleeve often slid up and down the drum while I was sanding. And if I managed to tighten up the bolt enough, it was nearly impossible to loosen it again. Last week, a hand screw miraculously jumped onto the sander table and solved the problem. I tightened it around the drum and easily twisted the bolt. Hallelujah! — Travis Larson
