I was recently at a local carving show when I ran into a guy named Jerry Moore. He was sitting at his booth showing off a pretty neat little product for wood carvers called the Flex-Sander.
Jerry explained that when you are doing fine detail carving, it’s difficult to get into the tight areas of your project. Jerry’s solution is a flexible piece of plastic and miniature sanding belts. By simply changing your grip, you can get the sandpaper into the narrow cracks and crevices, and you can rotate the belt to get fresh grit.
Not only is it a clever little invention, it’s also made locally, a few minutes from my house in the city of Pinellas Park, Florida. Here’s to successful local businesses!
