Pounce Wheels Explained:
Use #1: Transferring drawings from paper to wood - just roll the pounce wheel over the drawing and it perforates tiny holes in the paper. Place the paper over the wood. Then rub powdered chalk (the kind used for snap lines; available at any hardware store) over the perforated holes. The chalk goes through the holes and marks the wood. Use #2: Simulating rivets on models - works on wood, plastic and sheet brass up to .01 inch thick.

Includes silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, cerium oxide and chromium oxide.

4" x 6" Micro-Mesh Sheet - $4.25
Grit Choices
Micro-Mesh Polishing Sheets create a glass-smooth finish on painted and unpainted surfaces. Micro-Mesh Polishing sheets are not only ideal for creating or restoring a high-gloss finish, it can also be used for creating crystal clear finishes on full-size non-glass canopies and windscreens, polishing metals, and producing ultra-smooth finishes on wood. Micro-Mesh features micro grains of abrasive bonded with a resilient adhesive to a cushioned, soft cloth backing, providing a smooth shaving action across surfaces, rather than gouging and abrading them. And Micro-Mesh lasts longer than other sanding products, because its construction prevents the abrasive crystals from fracturing and overheating, whether used dry or wet.

12-Piece Double-Ended Riffler/Rasp Set - $39.78
Extra coarse mini-riffler files for fast stock removal. These wood rasps with riffler file shapes cut through both hard and soft wood, quickly and easily.

Their unique design lets you do intricate work that ordinary straight rasps can't. 12-piece set includes half-round, triangle, flat, square, round and wedge shapes. Made of alloy steel, approx. 5-1/2” long overall.
