Pine gum on drum sander
#11
  
I have committed sacrilege, first by using yellow pine; second by running it thru my drum sander. I have expensive zirconia paper on this thing and don't want to waste it. How do you get this crud off the sand paper?
Now where is that chisel

If it’s cloth backed, soak it in straight simple green, if it’s paper backed throw it away and consider it a lesson learned.

Soak in Simple Green, use a STIFF plastic bristle brush, and elbow grease.

Molding-grade sugar pine did it to me.

Next time I want to run some through I'll try spraying PAM on the paper first.

I took a couple slagged up with finish outside, laid them on the driveway and blasted them with a pressure washer.  Worked really well.

Friend had an antique replica shop and used pine all the time. Also had cloth backed belts for his timesaver sander. He took the belts to the car wash and pressure washed them.

I thought those gum rubber belt cleaners took it off easily?

No.....those are more hype than reality.

I'll keep some almost worn out paper for pine, then pitch it (pun intended).

Yes, a pressure washer is the best way to clean loaded up drum sander strips.

Blade and Bit Pitch remover works too.

Sounds like an interesting idea, how would you hold them down to pressure wash ?
