Step 2

Then sand away any old pieces of damaged and scratched wood using the Dremel 8200, EZ SpeedClic mandrel (SC402) and the EZ SpeedClic Abrasive Buffs in Coarse, Medium and Fine (511S and 512S). Alternatively, use the new EZ SpeedClic detailed abrasive brushes for delicate shapes (471S, 472S and 473S). If you need to execute precise sanding, and sanding at a 45 degree and 90 degree angle, then the new Dremel Shaping Platform will help you to do this.
