    Tube inner sanding shaft

    This days, I am in the mood of making woodwind musical instruments.
    Once the bore hase been reamed, or after the tone holes have been drilled, you may need to smoothen the bore.
    This tool is called a "mouche" in French (means a fly), this is a very old trick, to hold a piece of rigid sand paper at the end of a shaft, powered by an electric drill





    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Hello Christophe Mineau,

    Thanks for the Project... I´ve been looking for a neat Project for something like yours... I´ve been using a piece of tube like you have, but i´m trying to get Creative for do something with handle and probably two bolts to secure the sanding paper...

    Regards,

    Sérgio P.

    We have 'fly-paper' too; entirely different purpose, but puns don't often get work done.
    A split rod driving abrasive can be very effective. My results improve when sheet is tapered somewhat, rotating so narrow end is on the outside, blending the surfaces.
    To other readers; these are notoriously out of balance! Insert paper to bore BEFORE rotating, or unintended things get involved.
    Like flinging safety glasses across the shop.
