SAND AND CUT

Model Airplane News - - 50 BUILDING TIPS -

When it comes to mak­ing straight cuts in sheets of balsa or ply­wood, you need a straight­edge to guide your knife. If you use a steel ruler, it can slip and the blade will dam­age your pieces. But you can use a Great Planes Bar Sander for dou­ble duty. When pressed down on the piece of wood you want to cut, the sand­pa­per will help pre­vent the bar from shift­ing while you cut. When the part is cut through, you can use it for its orig­i­nal in­tent: to sand the edges of the wood smooth.
