Can i paint my garage doors?


Clopay's steel garage doors can be painted with any high quality exterior latex paint. Wood garage doors must be painted/stained on all sides prior to installation. Most models are available factory primed. Clopay recommends wood garage doors be re-painted every 1 to 2 years (more frequent refinishing may be required in high moisture areas).

What causes my belt sander to leave black goo on the wood? I keep replacing the sand belt, I do not push the sander into the wood.


Maybe you are burning the wood. If the wood is hard (like oak or maple) and the grit is fine (like 100 or higher) then this can only be avoided by NEVER running it still in one place. Keep the sander moving quickly over the surface. In fact, you should start the sander BEFORE you touch it to the wood, and when you do touch the wood you should be landing it like a little airplane on the runway. As long as you keep the sander oriented with the grain you can move it forward and back as well as side to side. Just keep moving until you lift it off of the wood - this also helps keep the surface flatter. Good luck.

Sander disc no longer "sticks"


Most commercially made disc sanders have replacements pads whether they are hook and loop type or the rubber. If you go to the manufactures web sit and look up your sander, it will usually be listed somewhere. But you might have to call an authorized repair center to find the part number to order.

Remove the three screws on the handle cover part 23 to expose the cable connection to the trigger switch.

Hello I have a compressor and my electric orbital sander has finally gone legs up. My question is if I get an air sander primarily for sanding wood is a straight line the best sort to get or are the...


I work in a wood working shop and we use orbitals on everything. You still will still sand with nice even strokes with the grain. It leaves a great finish. They are nice, light, and easy to use! They do use a lot of air though, so make sure your air compressor can handle the one you buy. If you compressor is constantly running you might have to take breaks so you do not burn it up. enjoy!

I have a MS1000 Black and Decker Cyclone round sander..looking for replacement sanding disc


Hello, W/D here.
Most sanding disc types are available at the larger box hardware stores. They are (sometimes) generic or exact replacements.
I use the "Gator" brand on my B7D sander, and the discs work just fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

Clarke FM1700 buffer-sander, problems with using it


what is the condition of the felt pad on the driver?? The sander should not be that hard, usually you need to lift up or slightly bear down to get the machine to move left or right. Are there any exposed nails in the area you are sanding and check the grit for the sanding conditions
