Trick of the Trade: A ‘Little Lifesaver Of A Tool’

As22 Tot Orbital Air Sander Between Balusters

This issue’s tip comes from Aaron Sheaves of Sheaves Floors LLC in Weyers Cave, Va.

When I am refinishing old homes with tight balusters on the stair treads or landings, this little orbital air sander, which comes with 1-, 2- or 3-inch sanding heads, works perfectly for the job. It’s a little lifesaver of a tool, making the sanding so much faster, cleaner and easier. Unfortunately, I don’t like the paper that is supplied with the tool, so I cut discs to fit and match whatever I’m finishing the floor with.
