Utilizing Sanding Mandrels and Sandpaper. Electrical tape, Scissors, an electric Dremel drill, and any items requiring grinding or polishing, such as rings.

Proceed to the next step.

Before beginning grinding, polishing, or finishing techniques, you need to be aware of the safety precautions.

First, remember that any power tool requires the use of eye protection if objects fly into your eyes.

Because you are using a tool-based material such as sandpaper, you may need to wear a dust mask in case you inhale very fine dust particles.

If you are going to be doing the work for an extended period time, or if you are going to be sitting and working for an extended period time, you should also wear ear protection because the noise from the electric motor could cause hearing damage.

Then Select the appropriate grit of sandpaper and mandrel, then go to the next step. We can summarize using tips. The mandrel is an instrument that is compatible with the flex shaft. Used for interior finishing on items such as jewelry.

1. Select the type of sandpaper you like to use to complete your Jewelry, such as Grit 600# wet/dry sandpaper.

2. Prepare to cut a one-inch-wide strip of sandpaper with scissors and fold it in half with the gripping material on the back and the sandpaper on the front.

3. Wrap the sandpaper around the Mandrel and insert it into your Dremel drill; reusable versions are available; tighten the Dremel drill with your finger.

4 .Attach it to the end and thread it through the electrical tape. Please remember to wrap it properly so that it does not unwind while turning your Fordham; wrap it around the very end a couple of times. Or apply a small amount of glue and clamp the end with a clip until the glue sets.

5. The machine will then quickly sand the interior of the object, and you can rotate it back and forth multiple times.

6. Go in and sand and grind; when the sandpaper becomes dull, simply grab it, pull off a small portion, and continue working as usual.

Above all is the fast way to use a sandpaper mandrel to grind or finish.

2. Please use it at a modest speed, 2000-5000 RPM is suggested.

3. Do not sand to the bottom of the sticky paper or the sandpaper will become unusable. The sandpaper will fall apart.
