    Default Sandpaper Flap Wheels Products

    Hi Everyie
    I need to sand the lacquer off the curved timber next to the glass on some french doors. approx 20mm wide
    I was looking at some Sandpaper Flap Wheels Products like Josco (photo below) but i'm not sure what grit to get ie. 60, 80 or 120
    Any suggestions would be appreciated bc they're $10-$12 each.

    Thanks
    Bruce

    No pic.

    Light grit 120 for timber but test on a piece of timber first because you don't want disc marks in french doors, and don't touch the glass with any sort of sanding disc

    Personally I would hand sand and mask up the glass first.

    Just had to do it to a laundry door but only a small amount of glass.

    Come to think of it I did some french doors a while back, used the belt sander on the flat areas and hand sanded against the glass.

    Thanks for your advice Cyclic There's a lot of glass (four doors) So might just do by hand with 80-120 paper

    I would use a tungsten scraper flap discs are very abrasive, they are very good, but not for delicate stuff,
    Multitool with the triangle sanding pad attachment is the way to go.

    Assuming you are referring to the beading around the glass?


    Flap disks will destroy the profile and if touched on the glass will destroy that as well.
    In the past I have used paint stripper and or heat guns to get the majority off. Have tried nylon bristle brushes but even they are too harsh. Hand scrapping or sanding is the go.
