AN ORDINARY scrub brush affords one of the best means of sanding objects turned in the lathe. It is vastly superior to most other methods. Sandpapering a spindle turning without some sort of backing is hard on the hands because of frictional heat generated by the turning spindle against the sandpaper. The use of a regular sandpaper block to hold the sandpaper during this operation is not practical as the contour of the turning cannot be followed with great enough accuracy. A stiff-bristled brush overcomes these disadvantages because it is sufficiently resilient to take on the contour of the average wood turning.

The wood backing of the scrub brush should have square ends to permit the securing of a sheet of sandpaper. The sand paper may be fastened to the wood backing with thumbtacks as shown, but if a more permanent method of fastening is desired, strips of wood 1/4" x 1/2" in section can be used as cleats. Screws driven through the cleats and into the back of the brush can be tightened after the ends of the sandpaper have been slipped under the
loosened wood cleats.
