Producing a true square edge on very thin, friable material such as veneer is difficult at the best of times and compounded when burrs have to be edge jointed. The Veritas Shooting Sander allows stock to be sanded square and to size as jointing by sanding instead of planing reduces the risk of splintering or chipping on thin material, difficult grain, or even lacquered or painted mouldings. The wooden knob is angled to allow the user to apply equal pressure to the sole and face. It can also be positioned at any point along the length of the sander, locking in place with a simple twist of the knob. Compatible with any shop-made shooting board sized for the shooting plane, each sander has a 6mm wide lip along the bottom of the face that keeps the sander from widening the shooting board track. The body is extruded aluminium with a black anodised finish. Supplied with six 225mm long, 30mm wide strips of PSA-backed aluminium oxide sandpaper; two each of 120g, 180g and 220g aluminium oxide grit with a zinc stearate coating.
