Kirjes Sanding System

Woodturners, woodcarvers, chairmakers, model makers, furniture makers, stickmakers rejoice!
Sanding your work is easier than you thought!

The Kirjes Sanding System from Sweden uses inflatable rubber bulbs or drums and abrasive paper to give you the smoothest and most flexible form of sanding (next to hand sanding which isn't so much fun).

Many inflatable sanders are quite awkward in their design, often made with big sides and hard edges with a valve poking out of the underside and an oversized drive shaft.

The Kirjes drum sanders are inflated through an air inlet in the drive shaft. This is a patented solution which has made it possible not only to make superior cylindrical sanders but also to make rounded bowl sanders in 2 sizes - The Kirjes Bowl Sanders.

The inflatable rubber sanders are soft which allows them to be used all the way to the edge of your work. This eliminates scratches and allows you to apply the total width of the sander against your work or to use just the edge. The sander actually becomes flat when pressed against a flat surface and round when pressed against a round surface ie. the sander will conform to the underlying surface.

Kirjes is the most revolutionary sanding system for hobbyist and professional woodworkers. It has particular appeal to woodturners & woodcarvers and has stood the test of time - we have been selling ot for 18 years!

Kirjes uses up to 5 inflatable rubber sanders that each have a minumum of 3 grits per sanding sleeves, from coarse to extra fine, fitted either to a flexible shaft or the quiet 1/2 HP (300 watt) motor. The inflatable sanders are ruggedly built from Swedish steel and heavy rubber.

This system easily eliminates your labourious hand sanding process, saving you countless hours of sanding while putting a beautiful, silky smooth finish on your masterpieces.The dust extraction sleeve means you can move the dust away at the point of sanding.

We include a leaflet with all the kits & packages that explains the Kirjes sanding process This gives practical proposals of how to use the coarse to extra fine grit sanding sleeves to achieve that velvety wooden surface.
