|Q.||I would like to use this brush sander to distress hardwood flooring but i am concerned about how to get the inside corners where the floor meets the walls, especially where the short grain meets the wall. Is there another tool used to accomplish this? Any tips on how to finish the edges?|
Thank you for your inquiry to Bailey's. The best bet is going to be to remove the baseboard, which I’m assuming you have. Once you remove the baseboard you need to find a steel wire brush or any number of "paint removal" type brushes that are sold. Really recommend Home Depot. You want a brush type with as close to the consistency as the brush on the Makita tool. And you will likely need to finish the edges and corners by hand. Blending the hand with the machine work. Your other option would be a course grain sandpaper, very course or a drywall sander (black weave material in sheets) which is also a manual effort.
I have both doug fir and oak flooring throughout my house, circa 1915. The flooring has been re-done and the edges and corners were a bear.
