These small & handy 3D-printed tools are specifically designed for putting a perfect 2-sided BEVEL on the hinge edges of your balsa aileron and elevator surfaces, and for rounding-off balsa leading edges as well. These are meant for smaller-size balsa, such as 3/32, 1/8, 3/16 thicknesses. The Edge Sanders can also work on foam!
They fit in your hand like a toothbrush!
Available in 4 different types. ALL FOUR are included in this set!
- The set includes one with a 90-degree opening (for making 45-degree bevels), one with a 60-degree opening (for making 30-degree bevels), a small round sander (1cm-3/8″ radius) and a larger round sander (5mm-3/16″ radius).All four have flat sides as well.
The tools come with 150-grit sandpaper attached. The customer can remove the paper if needed by applying foam-safe CA activator to dissolve the glue. New sandpaper can be attached using a spray contact cement such as 3M brand “77”.
This picture shows the 60-degree tool. These tools are small (about 4 inches long) including the handle – intended for small jobs and precision work. The sandpaper wraps around the sides providing additional flat sanding surfaces for other uses.
