Well, I was busy today!! Yesterday, I started epoxying 8 of the remaining 16 M390 Artifex. I got 4 of the handles profiled out yesterday, and I finished epoxying the 8 remaining handles today, got the remaining 12 profiled and then started the shaping process!
Rough profiled and starting the shaping on a 36 grit belt:
Went to a 120 grit belt, then 180:
Then 220, 320, 400 and 600:
Yup, 16 handles shaped to 600 grit belt finish in about 7 hours today, maybe a bit less
Loving the new belt sander!!! I left these handles fatter for the people who want a more beefy handle for the Artifex.
