GATOR - Drill-Grinding and Sanding (3)
Rona’s selection of drill-powered grinders and other sanding attachments make it easy to give your project a smooth and finished look. Clean up rough edges left behind by saws with sanders, or bumpy textures at welding joints with grinders. Drill grinders come in a range of shapes and sizes to move around work pieces, scouring away these and other imperfections. They offer not only quick and convenient deburring but also precision control. Look for round, conical, and drum-shaped attachments, both individually and in collected sets.
These attachments are made of abrasive materials such as vitrified aluminum oxide or steel wire. Consider the latter for heavy-duty applications such as the removal of long-term accumulations of rust and other environmental build-up. There are also nylon brushes and flap wheels with coarse grit to polish flat surfaces such as tile. They are also essential for stripping away an old, chipped layer of paint before applying a fresh coat. Some brushes have a cup shape to better polish spherical objects. Rotary rasps made of tempered steel provide aggressive cutting power when filing down many materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. Some of these also feature cut-outs for an improved view of the work piece.
Other attachments include drum-shaped sanders and sanding sleeves that leave wood feeling smooth to the touch. Like grinding accessories, these are also available in many sizes to suit the needs of different applications.
These power tool accessories are compatible with many power drill models and attach to them with ease. Drills with quick-change chucks facilitate rapid bit exchanges and quickly switching between attachments while the project progresses.
