New from Woodturner Pro
Woodturner Pro's new Lamination Pro software makes it easy to design wood laminations with multi-generations. However, there is precision needed to cut them properly. Woodturner Pro has now released the tool to make this precision easy, the Laminate Laser.
Laminate Laser has a very powerful magnetic base. The gooseneck is flexible, but requires effort to bend it. This means that it will stay in position once set and will not move if bumped.
The Laminate Laser is delivered to you fully assembled and ready to use. The price of the unit as shown is $50 US dollars plus shipping.

Available in ¾" width and as a micro tool.

- New Superior Sandpaper
The new superior sandpaper is called No-Fil Magnum A275 and is made by Norton, one of the last two sandpaper makers in North America. Its heat-treated aluminum oxide grains are bonded to a strong, but flexible paper backing, then coated to prevent loading. The paper is un-dyed which allows the abrasive grains to better adhere to it and also eliminates the possibility that any color will be transferred to the work. In addition to cutting up to three times faster and lasting nearly three times longer than garden variety paper, it is also waterproof. Even though you may not do much wet sanding with 80 grit, you can be assured that your paper will not curl up in the humid days of summer.
