From the maker of the Robo-Sander (which we covered a while back) comes this drill-press-driven precision thickness sander targeted toward instrument makers. Not surprisingly, it’s called “The Luthier’s Friend.”
It consists of a 10″ x 12″ base with a micro-adjustable fence plus a “specially-made” 2″ x 3″ Robo-Sander sanding drum attachment. According to the manufacturer, “you can thickness and pattern-sand wood up to 2-3/4″ tall.”
Street pricing is $160. There’s a lot more to understanding how this tool works, but not being luthiers, it’s a bit lost on us. We’re hoping maybe you can help by explaining it in comments.
