Oscillating Bobbin Sander Sleeves 

Bobbin Sander Sleeves 
Bobbin Sander Sleeves 
1/2" Bobbin Sander Sleeve 
2" Oscillating Spiral Wound Sanding Sleeve 

Applications: For bobbin and oscillating sanders. The aluminium oxide abrasive will work well on both wood and steel. They are commonly used for refining shapes and smoothing the edges of curves. Choose a low number grade, eg 40 for coarser action and stock romoval and higher number grades for smoothing and finishing. 

Product Notes:  These sleeves are made with spiral wound abrasive cloth on a firm core. This helps present a joint-free face for even sanding performance.

They can be cut to shorter lengths if required, using a simple hacksaw or band saw. Two or more sleeves can also be used on the bobbin to provide longer lengths.

Most of the machines sold in UK have bobbin sizes based on imperial dimensions, but which may be quoted in close metric equivalents. We have thus listed sizes in both mm and inches. Diameters quoted are internal, (external size will be 3-4mm larger).

Bundles: We offer multi-grade bundles with  a discount for even better value. These consist of 4 packs each of grades 40, 60, 80 and 120 in a specific size. Pack sizes are 10 or 5 as listed below, so bundles contain either 40 or 20 (larger) sleeves. 

Diameters: Metric: 9.6mm, 13mm, 16mm, 19mm, 22.2mm, 25.4mm, 32mm, 38mm, 51mm, 76.2mm, 89mm, 128mm.

                  Imperial Equivalents: 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 2", 3", 3 1/2", 5".
