A good mate of mine picked this gadget up for me at a trade show in Sydney. It's great for curved sanding and can do really precise work. Working the bow sander is quite therapeutic and sort of takes you back to a more peaceful age of woodworking. See all the details at the website.

Cool invention. Goes the small strip sanders 1 better, so I'm supposing it removes stock fast and precise. 

 

Don't worry about the last post image being upside down. I have a pic viewer called "ViewDownUnder" that automatically flips shots to northern hemisphere mode  ;)

Very droll...actually that's why Australians are smarter than everybody else because being upside down we have a greater

supply of blood to the brain...
