Default Friction Sealing Website

Hi all,

I have created a sub domain on my web page which allows you to follow a pictorial step by step of my method of friction sealing "Tung" Oils and their imitators. It's here:

http://www.sanding.damnfinefurniture.com (sanding.damnfinefurniture.com)

Regards,

Rob

Thanks Rob
I'm going to take a look at that..I have a cherry table top to sand and finish tomorrow (Saturday) I'm thinking I might seal it using the tung oil burnish method, then follow up next week with multiple coats of liberon finishing oil.
I usually spray table tops unless the customer has requested an oil finish.

I didn't get to the burnishing stage today, Rob..I got held up on another job
What I wanted to ask You about is the sanders pad.. Through the burnishing process, does the sticky oil make its way onto the Velcro pad (hook and loop for the US)? I was thinking this could potentially ruin the pad if it were to harden. What's you take on this?
Cheers!

Hi Okami,

I've had no problem with the pad being damaged any more than with dry sanding. The higher pads have no holes, which I guess helps. The other thing to remember is to remove the vacuum. This also helps I think. The only time you'll really have to worry about oil getting onto the pad is when you are using the 400g wet. Once the slurry forms (which is reasonably dry) there's not so much of an issue. But I leave the vacuum off for all the wet sanding.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob

Thanks , Rob!
I was thinking about using my rupes half sheet orbital sander because it has no Velcro backing, just a hard foam pad. Might cover more area quicker too. I might try the bottom of the table that way, and see how it goes.
