    DESCRIPTION

    This finishing accessory selection is ideal for difficult profiles, finishing small to medium carvings, boxes, bowls, musical instruments, duck decoys, walking sticks, fine furniture, toys, spoons, 3D-intarsia, taxidermy and a myriad of other DIY applications. The dome shaped round sander our most popular sander and is particularly well suited for round, curved, bulging or cup-formed shapes whether convex or concave contours. It’s a dream accessory and takes the hard work out of hand sanding curved surfaces like the inside of bowls and boxes. The drum sander is terrific for putting the finishing touches on small to medium flat surfaces.

    We produced this starter, affordable kit with the knowledge that it can be used with your chucked flexible shaft on your own power sources in your shop. This covers a drill press or any machine with an adjustable chuck and where the speed can be lowered to around 3,400 rpm and certainly not higher than 7000 rpm. The inflatable sanders normally turn at 3,400 rpm for optimum sanding performance but you can run them up to a maximum of 7,000 rpm, according to the manufacturer. We don’t guarantee the results at this high speed only because we’ve never run them this fast!

    King Arthur’s Tools tailored this kit due to demand from customers who didn’t require a Guinevere motor and flex shaft because they had equipment in their shop that they felt could power the system.  We listen to what you tell us!

    Without a doubt, this is the most revolutionary sanding system to come out in years! Guinevere uses inflatable rubber sanders, flat and round, fitted either to a flexible shaft or the quiet ½ HP (300 watt) 3,400 rpm motor. The inflatable sanders are ruggedly built from Swedish steel and heavy rubber. From the quiet yet powerful motor to the complete range of long life sleeves, Guinevere ensures complete control over the sanding process. This system easily eliminates your laborious hand sanding process, saving you countless hours of sanding while putting a beautiful, silky smooth finish on your masterpieces. You will actually enjoy this sanding experience.

    USES: Guinevere is a complete sanding system. Simply defined, it conforms to the shape of your work, whether concave, convex or flat. This patented system is ideal for difficult profiles, finishing small to medium carvings, boxes, bowls, musical instruments, duck decoys, walking sticks, fine furniture, toys, spoons, 3D-intarsia, taxidermy and a myriad of other DIY applications. The round shaped sanders are also particularly well suited for round, curved, bulging or cup-formed shapes where the drum sanders are great for putting the finishing touches on small to medium flat surfaces.

    INFLATABLE SANDERS: The Guinevere Inflatable Sanders are pumped up through an air inlet in the drive shaft located in the bottom of each sander. The air valve design leaves the bottom flat without a clumsy protruding valve on the sanders. This patented solution made it possible to make superior cylindrical drum sanders as well as a unique rounded sander with a Round shape at the business end. This molded rubber bulb constantly flexes and changes shape, making the sanders soft all the way to the edge. Guinevere eliminates scratches and allows you to apply the sander's total width against the workpiece or to use only the edge in all kinds of complex sanding. The sander actually becomes flat when pressed against a flat surface and round when pressed against a round surface i.e. the sanders conform to the underlying surface. Consequently, the sanders should be filled with very little air (the round sander, part number 11341, needs to be pumped slightly harder than the drum sander).

    SANDING SLEEVES: Every sanding sleeve is made to specifically fit each inflatable sander. The sanding cloth material is highly flexible and made of the very best quality, sanding not only wood but also metals, plastic, bone and horn. As the sanders are both round and soft the tendency for them to be clogged by dust and resin is very small compared, for example, with rotating paper discs. The sharpness of the abrasive lasts a long time, however, we highly recommend using a cleaning stick to considerably extend the working life of each sleeve. Cleaning sticks are included in each sanding set and are also available separately.

    Guinevere Basic Sanding Kit Review by Carole Rothman
    When I first started making bowls, it took a while before I decided to invest the money for an inflatable ball, but I could not have written my book without Guinevere. (Posted on 2/10/2017)
    Guinevere Basic Sanding Kit Review by Ed Rizzardi
    I have been designing and making contemporary sculpted chairs for 30 years. I tell everyone that a finely crafted rocking chair will take about 100 hours to make from start to finish. There is about 40 hours of selecting the right pieces of lumber, cutting out all the components and assembling the chair. Then comes the fun part; about 60 hours of shaping, sculpting and sanding the chair to a fine piece of furniture.

    For many years most of the shaping was done with hand tools and a lot of elbow grease. Then, I discovered the King Arthur s Holey Galahad.

    The Holey Galahad 4 grinding wheels are one of the finest tools I have used through out my entire career. The Holey Galahad is a precision balanced grinding wheel that is so controllable it is beyond belief. You can shape to a line with such control that with a few minutes of practice you will have the highest degree of confidence and feel as if you have been shaping for years.

    One feature that sets the Holey Galahad apart from other grinding wheels on the market are the holes machined in the cutter. This enables you to see through the cutter as you re shaping your work piece. No more guess work!!!!

    I would estimate that I have reduced the sculpting of my chairs by 10 to 15 hours using King Arthur s Holey Galahad. That s right, 15% of the grunt work gone and a better job than ever!

    I would highly recommend this tool to anyone building sculpted furniture.

    Sincerely,
