New to Festool , is Rubin 2
« on: January 06, 2020, 07:48 PM »
A good sandpaper for live edge Walnut? I found it on clearance for 1/2 price and wondered how it compared to Saphir( which someone else suggested for rough work and Granat for finishing)
I would be using on a Rotex 150

Thanks in advance

A brush would be my choice for cleaning up live edges.

Honestly, I only use Rubin/Rubin 2 abrasives for the most part.

I agree with the comment that an abrasive brush may be better for cleaning a natural edge of bark remainders, etc, since sanding will absolutely alter the profile of the edge in at least minor ways and maybe major ways if one is not careful.
