DIY sanding sticks

Recommended Posts

Hi there! styrene_engineer_20201021_031259_0.jpg.78d55478ed003f318b0eb275e65bedcf.jpg

#DIY Sanding stick. During building my models I need to sand plastic.  Sanding sticks are the best way to do this.  I make them myself. For this you will need: 
-sanding paper(any grit you need)
-double side foamed tape
-plastic card or any piece of plastic
-sharp knife


First cut strip of plastic and sand edges to make them smooth.


Then cut a piece of foamed tape and glue to plastic strip.


Cut off excess tape. Cut necessary strip of sanding paper and glue it to the stick with tape.


If you need double side sanding stick then glue sanding paper from another side.

I make my own too. I use 3M tape and I cut one side flush so I can sand tight to an inside 90 degree corner. The other side, I leave the sandpaper Sticking out 1/16”- 3/32”  so I can sand an inside radius corner.

Great idea! I should to try your variant too.
