Hens_Chang, send me a PM about it!

I am doing a "soft" re opening of orders. With my shed being outside and uninsulated, things are taking a lot longer than normal due to weather/cold temp issues. Other times of the year, I can work outside for several hours at a time, during the winter, it's much shorter and I switch over to more hand sanding of handles instead of the belt sander, so it adds time. I have a few here now for handles I am hoping to finish in the next few weeks, depending on the weather.

Well, that didn't quite go according to plan. With the PSA sanding discs, the big metal 12" disc sander plates and the cold weather, the PSA discs would curl up and pull off of/away from the metal sanding discs within minutes of not using them. I will try heating the disc with a heat gun before use, but the wa handles are going to be slower being made until the weather warms up a bit more. Not an issue with Western rehandles though since I use the belt sander for those!

Yeah, I had the sanding discs fall off of the sanders :( . It was warmer today, so I got 3 handles prepped and epoxied, now I gotta wait a few days for the epoxy to cure and then fire up the new heaters and see if the discs will stay put better.
