Michael,

You're correct, we would hold the tools to a moving belt for a short bit and then let them cool. We also used PSA on granite plates and on MDF. As Peter pointed out, a file is an option as well. Of course keeping the amount of material to removed would make the job much easier, and shouldn't be that difficult to measure accurately.

Well, in that case you won't need to worry about sanding the brass, just sanding a half inch of wood down to meet the brass!

Ive included brass in a few projects and its a breeze to cut and sand flush.

file close or nearly flush and take down with a hardwood sanding block making sure to go thru the grits so you dont leave any deep scratches. 400 grit looks nice .

If you are doing an oil finish you can polish the brass while wet sanding in the oil. up to 4000
