Sanding decking (the grooves man)

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by volkswombat, Jun 4, 2015.

  1. Is there a machine or an attachment for a machine that will sand decking in the grooves?
    I can't find owt but surely in these modern times some smarty-pants has invented something.
    Yes I could just use folded sandpaper, or a piece of laminate floor on edge wrapped in sandpaper, but it would be tedious and time consuming, I don't have bags of time.
    And no a powerwasher won't work :p besides I don't have one
     
  2. Suppose a wire wheel on a drill maybe? Think angle grinder be too harsh.
    Ideally I thought there'd be a ribbed sander type thing
     
  3. I cleaned mine up last week. A really stiff broom with lots of water also a ton of elbow grease. Came up lovely.

  19. Buy a dog, but don't worm it. Glue a sheet of sandpaper to its bum, then place it on the decking. Sorted :thumbsup:
