Hello Eva,

This is so ingenious!  Have been trying to think of another way to sand as everyone else has.  How long would you say each dot lasts?  Would it at least last for one bead so as to not have to put a new dot on in the middle of sanding?  I have avoided making round beads for a long time because of the sanding, so I make more pendants than anything else.  Do you think one would last through the sanding of an average sized pendant? 

I can't wait to try it out and maybe will be making small round beads again! 

Kathy

 Thanks, Kathy

The dots are good for at least a couple handfuls of beads and then some. It, of course, depends on how smooth your beads are after baking, but sand away and you won't be disappointed in the results.

I'm not sanding a lot of round beads with all the grits, but I have spent a whole afternoon sanding a couple dozens bic pens and 7-8 large barrettes through 400 - 600 -800 -1000 and 1200 without changing any of the dots. Didn't wear out the alkaline batteries either ;o)

Go down to the bottom of the page and click on the link for posts 1-16 of this thread. Post 1 Explains Everything! (Well, except the followup discussion, of course.)

The guy that does awesome wire wrapping has been making and selling these for awhile. I bought one from him a couple years ago. They are nifty little tools, although I usually do bigger pieces, so I only use them for spot sanding.

Jinx, take a look at the date of the first post in this thread. Eva came up with the idea way before Matthew started selling them.

Eva,
thank you so much, I bought my Crest Spinbrush today at WalMart.
I purchased the one with the charger base, as I hate to keep buying batteries, LOL.
I also purchased the extra "two" heads, and I plan to use those two for sanding, and the one that came on the base, for actually, yes, my TEETH! LOL!
What a fabulous idea, thank you again, I am charging the base one right now, so will be able to try out the sanding this weekend, (and teeth, too!)
Happy Holidays!
Barbara
