Before being painted, wooden window frames need to be sanded thoroughly in order to ensure that the paint will adhere securely. This illustrated guide clearly explains how to sand windows while protecting the glass pane using the Festool protector system. It describes the steps needed for coarse and fine sanding on the surfaces and in the corners. The illustrated guide also includes a list of recommended tools for these tasks.
As the weather takes a toll on shutters, they need to be sanded from time to time in order to refresh their appearance. The Festool system explains how to select the right materials and methods to sand shutters that show signs of light surface weathering and folding shutters that have been severely damaged by weather. In the latter scenario, the wood is often exposed as a result of the paint flaking. The method can be used for surfaces, edges, corners and slats.
Even with the best care and attention, coatings on doors, windows and furniture wear away over time – paint and varnish can tear, flake and lose its shine. This guide makes it simple to remove paint from wood and to give surfaces a new lease of life with a fresh coat of paint. The ROTEX eccentric sander can be used to sand off old paint efficiently, quickly and with hardly any dust.
