“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
The manufacturer of the Wagner Safe-T-Planer has retired, so we no longer have access to this great tool. We will continue to produce the Wagner Safe-T-Planer Sanding Disc for a short while for those who already have a Safe-T-Planer.
LMI created the SPSPSD sanding disc to key into the Wagner Safe-T-Planer. Simply remove the Safe-T-Planer cutters, then insert the sanding disc using the Safe-T-Planer's screws (don't over tighten). The sander can be outfitted with self-adhesive sandpaper, or you might prefer to use spray on adhesive to affix the paper to your disc. The sandpaper will need to be cut down to the dimensions of the cutter. This can easily be done using an Exacto knife or a razor blade. LMI sells Tri-M-ite™ self-adhesive sandpaper in rolls that work great with this sander. We recommend you buy 2 or 3 sanding discs and keep a dedicated paper on each. This is a great tool for sanding nuts and saddles, bridges, braces, and even backs, sides and tops. Be sure to watch our video on this page for tool use and recommendations.
It's important when using the Safe-T-Planer Sanding Disc that your drill press table is perpendicular to the drill press shaft. Using our DPPT Drill Press Perpendicularity Tester makes this job a snap. Simply chuck up the tester and level the table in one direction (side to side), then the other (front to back). Your drill press table clamp should be tight when testing for perpendicularity.
How to set up and use the LMI Safe-T-Planer sanding disc and set your drill press table perpendicular to the chuck.
