Using Abrasive Paste For Woodturning

Using Abrasive Paste For Woodturning
I demonstrate how you can use a wax based abrasive paste like liquid sandpaper to eliminate fine scratches in your woodturning with less sanding. I also review some of the commercial abrasive pastes on the market: Yorkshire Grit, Dr Kirk’s Scratch FREE and UBeaut EEE Ultrashine.

  1. I've used just the Yorkshire Grit on wood and the micro-fine on resins and all finishes work very well,including CA on my pens! Hope this helps MikeπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  2. I use both EEE and Yorkshire grit I found that EEE works better on acrylics and Yorkshire grit works best on woods.

  3. Mike — On a completely different topic, what are your thoughts on inertia sanders? Some turners really like them. The subject would seem to fit in with your sanding theme.

  4. For those who are worried that the wax might interfere with their preferred finish, they can always wipe down the piece with a solvent like mineral spirits and let that dry before applying their finish.

  5. Good timing Mike! Just got my beeswax beads from Amazon and going to try walnut oil and mineral oil with pumice and rottenstone for my first two batches. I like the ziploc bag idea with a slow cooker and will try that. No mention of diatomaceous earth in you vid? πŸ™‚

  6. Mike, Thanks for the review. I decided to try all of them. I wish you had included links for each of the three different products. I did find them via google but it would have been quicker if you had listed the links.

  7. Nice video! I have only used EEE so cannot comment on the other 2 abrasives. I have found that the EEE works well on non-oily like oak or ash. But on woods like cedar or walnuts it leave streaks. I don't use sanding sealer and perhaps that may help with the streaks.

  8. Mike, I have been using EEE, but I wasn't aware that you could use lacquer, poly, or shellac over it, Thanks for the info, I will give it a try.

  9. Another information loaded video! Believe it or not, I have even used baby oil to wet sand!!! SAFE TURNING, John

  10. Mike: I'd be curious to know how your Minwax Antique oil finish worked on the prepped surface after the paste. I have been using the abrasive pastes for some time now but I have always used wax as my final finish. I am now wondering what your results might be after you used your standby oil-based finish plus give it a turn on the Beale buffer. Did you do this to the little persimmon bowl you used in the video?

  11. Brasso is a 30K grit liquid abrasive, if you're not worried about stains, say your sanding a finish or on acrylic or a dark wood.
