Sanding and Cleaning Techniques for the Kalamazoo S460W Wet Sander

The Kalamazoo S460W 4 x 60 inch wet sander is a versatile tool capable of tackling various sanding and cleaning tasks on a variety of materials besides wood. Here’s a comprehensive list of techniques you can explore:


  • Deburring: Remove sharp edges and burrs left behind from machining or cutting processes on metals like steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. Use coarse grit belts for initial deburring followed by finer grits for smoother finishes.
  • Polishing: Achieve a mirror-like finish on metals like brass, stainless steel, and aluminum. Start with medium grit belts to remove scratches and imperfections, then progress to finer grits for a high shine.
  • Grinding: Remove heavy material and shape metal components using coarse grit belts. This is ideal for preparing surfaces for welding or brazing.
  • Cleaning: Remove rust, corrosion, and paint from metal surfaces. Use medium grit belts for heavy cleaning and finer grits for lighter cleaning and surface prep before painting.
  • Satin Finishing: Achieve a soft, brushed-like finish on aluminum or stainless steel. Use non-woven abrasive belts specifically designed for satin finishing.

Glass and Stone:

  • Smoothing and Shaping: Shape and smooth edges on glass or stone slabs using coarse or medium grit belts. Be sure to use belts specifically designed for these materials to avoid cracking or scratching.
  • Polishing: Polish glass or stone for a high-gloss finish. Use finer grit belts and specialized polishing compounds for best results.
  • Removing Scratches: Remove minor scratches from glass or stone surfaces using fine grit belts and polishing compounds. Always test on a small, inconspicuous area first.

Plastics and Composites:

  • Smoothing and Finishing: Remove surface imperfections and achieve a smooth finish on plastic or composite materials. Use medium or fine grit belts depending on the desired outcome.
  • Deburring: Deburr edges on plastic or composite parts after cutting or machining. Choose appropriate grit belts based on the material and severity of the burrs.
  • Cleaning: Remove paint, glue, or other contaminants from plastic or composite surfaces. Use medium grit belts for heavy cleaning and finer grits for lighter cleaning.

Other Applications:

  • Sharpening tools: Sharpen knives, chisels, and other metal tools using the appropriate grinding belts. Always wear proper safety gear and exercise caution when sharpening tools.
  • Cleaning fiberglass boats: Remove marine growth, barnacles, and paint from fiberglass boat hulls using medium grit belts specifically designed for marine applications.
