How to start polishing（2）
Choose a well-ventilated area for operation. Gloves, protective glasses and masks are essential protection for sanding
Sanding will produce dust, so it is best to always wear a dust mask to prevent inhalation of dust. Sanding in a well-ventilated area to further reduce harmful inhalation, especially for materials such as glass fiber or metal. If handling toxic materials, such as painted objects, choose goggles with foam seals.
Dremay vise can hold tools or workpieces, it is a good way to keep the sanding surface stable
Polishing is about preparing and perfecting the machining process of the workpiece, so it is important that the object to be polished is stable and does not move during the project. The anti-slip mat is suitable for keeping the flat wooden block stable during the sanding process, or using a vise or clamp. For items that require detailed processing, a vise is a very good choice. It can fix the tool itself, which means you can hold the object you are polishing and gently touch the tool to move and polish. Or when you hold the tool grip with both hands, it can also hold the workpiece and keep the object stable to minimize unnecessary collisions.
It is recommended to clean the surface with a damp cloth before opening the sanding tool and make sure the workpiece is dry before starting. And if you are polishing and need to change back to coarse sand, it is recommended to use a vacuum cleaner. You can also use tools such as brushes, and use a vacuum cleaner to remove all dust and prevent dust from flying. If you are processing wood, the vacuum cleaner can also prevent dust from depositing in the wood defects.
Use degreaser and sponge or cloth to remove the smallest dust
Whether you plan to dye or paint the polished surface, you need to make sure it is clean. A vacuum cleaner can remove most of the debris, but it will still leave sawdust or other residues. You need to wipe off the smallest dust with a wet sponge or cloth. When the wood dries, the loose fibers will stand up. Once completely dry, lightly sand the entire surface with a high-grain sander. Finally, a clean cloth and some alcohol will take away the last traces of dust. After this step, the frosting work is done. You can apply one layer (or two layers) of dust-free varnish or paint.
