Sanding SS sink1/20/14
We have a Wilsonart SS sink installed over ten years ago with a lot of hair line cracks on the bottom. Today we ground them out and it looks 98% better. They weren't all that deep but did have trapped dirt. Not sure exactly what caused it?
The grind out was tough because we didn't have air on the job so had to do it with electric RO. The handle is in the way.
What kind of sanders have others used for this kind of situation? Something that is all vertical and no handle. Wasn't all that tough to do but the sink bottom isn't entirely flat because we had to tilt the sander and grind on the edge. Is there something electric that will work in this tight space?
we have used the dremel or oscillating handy tools with good luck with those triangle tips.
When you are done, use Barkeepers Friend. Seals and polishes.
Our little 3" random orbital sander would be perfect for that with our swivel hose. That kind of thing is what it was made for....but it's air driven. We designed it for doing the clean up after gluing in a sink and routing to flush it up.
That was my problem, no air on the job. Seems like there must be something with a pad on the end, a flexible shaft might work?
In august we will have an electric sander for sale that has the same handling characteristics as our air sanders. Might be interesting for you down the road. Keep an eye on our website.
