D. Enthusiasts today, I. Y. How to push the barrel and try new things. Here’s a guide to help those who feel need.
Rule number one make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Keep the area that want to do the minimum, so start off somewhere small cupboard or hallway, and then zoom into a large room at a later date. Remember that the end grain floor requires ten times more than ordinary grinding grain floor. So Rule number two, make sure you have the correct equipment and the correct sandpaper to do the job. You’ll need a professional floor sander with the leveling belt machine 8-10 inch, a 6-8 inch belt sander and a belt sander. When installing the floor to try to make sure that there is very little difference in height between the blocks. This will save a lot of time later when sanding. If there is more than 2mm, it will take a lot of time sanding so it is best to make sure your sub-floor is flat before installing.
So, Paul is his flat, not too many lumps and bumps you have the correct equipment. Start sanding with the belt floor sander with 50 grit sandpaper, go over the floor in all directions. Always sand in a straight line from the extreme point to extreme point start in the corner and come on the floor from one side of the room to the other. Then turn around and do the reverse as far as you can to always be careful with the wires of course. I hope after this the floor should feel flat to the touch, if not to do the same again depending on how flat the floor was to start with it may take up to 10 to 15 more go’s, hopefully not. Then, when the floor is flat, start sanding in a straight line along the length of the floor boards usually sand the same way was laid. Then you repeat this with 80 grit sandpaper. At the same time or after you can sand around the edges with 50 p, making sure that the crop is stored flat and first floor flat. Then, changing cropping 80 grit sandpaper and repeat. Put 100 grit sandpaper on a belt sander and sand again with the length of the wood this time, try to be very careful and sand in straight lines. As with the change edger to 100 grit and gently sand Tr not to dig the sander, as it will be.
We’re almost there, two more Sands to go, but first floor you need to pour the mixture and fill. We suggest filler resin, which is mixed with sawdust from the grinding machine. Double fill floor at least and leave it on overnight. Then in the morning sand on the floor with the grinding machine and the machine with 120 grit sandpaper. Make sure that all the filler from the night before is removed or continue until.Then buff the floor with a 150 grit screen on the screen sander.
So that’s it all done, all ready for you to apply the finish just make sure you wipe off dust with a tack cloth and then wipe the floor with a damp rag just before installing finishes. Hope this helps all of you D. I. g, nuts but be careful, it may take 10 times longer than conventional sanding the floor as the end grain surface is very difficult.
Thank you very much,
