 About the project

I bought this Craftsman orbital sander. The disk slowly rotates while it makes a fast orbital pattern. The holes in the paper allow the dust to be sucked into the little canister. When the curvature of the hull was small the somewhat flexible sanding pad would conform to the curve. As the curve tightened I’d use the edge of the pad. When it tightened even more I switched to the 3D sander.
