Great innovation. Have not used it very much yet, but it looks like it will be one of the tools that stays directly above my bench!
It's a handy little sanding stick that has many different uses.
Make sure you write the grit number on back of each belt a few times when you get them! The last thing you want to have to do when you need to use it is have to refer to a colour code system online or in a catalog - 3 different grits of the belts that I received didn't even b>HAVE/b> any colour markings on them!
The stick works as advertised. Very versatile, and I love it for sneaking into hard to reach areas. A bargain.
this is great for dressing frets and the back works great for contours on the body of my guitars
Works great and easy to get smooth action and results. The different belts come off and on easily and stay put while working.
I have such a limited budget for tools, I basically could get this or the 'Fret End Dressing File' (#1175). I chose this, and wish I handn't. The belts are not marked what grade they are, and I can only sand about 10 strokes before the belt has to be moved. It just isn't that good of a tool.
We're sorry you weren't happy with the dressing stick. Rather than grit numbers, the belts have a colored stripe on the back to tell you which grit you're working with. The red stripe is 120-grit and the black stripe indicates 600-grit, for example. (Refer to the color codes listed online and in our catalog). For precision sanding of small parts, sometimes the dressing stick is the perfect tool for the job. We hope you can still find some uses for it in your shop.
I'm still using a couple of the original dressing sticks which were made to a slightly slimmer design and are a little bit easier to use. there are a couple of the newer type ones here as well and the guys seem to get on with them OK - but I still think the original design was superior
This is a great little tool. I ordered two dressing sticks only and the 320 and 600 grit belts. I used them to clean up some frets. Fortunately each stick came with a 120 grit belt on them because I had a few high spots I needed to sand off. The 120 made quick work of it. I have ordered a set of 120 belts to add to the set.
This is simply a great inexpensive tool not only for fret dressing. Can't go wrong with it.
This is a truly great tool at a very practical price. Has many uses for guitar work. Great for frets and areas that are tricky to sand.
