When I used to use mine I had taken the disc off and either used a wire brush on it while it was turned on or I used sand paper when it was turned on.

Much faster when the sander is on.

About 8 months ago I glued 6 pine boards together to make a 15” x 2 1/2” thick board and then put a 8” face plate in the middle of it and turned it nice and round on the out side and flat on the inside.

I then put 3 coats of Shellac on it to seal it up and bought several grits of 15” disc paper from Grizzly. I mount it on my lathe when I need to use one. I think this way is so much better because it will not burn the wood because you can turn the lathe as fast as you want.
