laser pointer for wet sanding

Hi Kelly,

I have been having some dramas getting myself sorted out with a laser pointer as I wanted to do a bit of wet sanding practise after our training.

I have the mount for the base but cannot seem to find a pointer that A is cheep and B has a perminant on switch. Any sugestions?

Also how do I attach it to the base, I was thinking fiberglass?

P.S.
Your place is looking good with the new 1st storey in, any movement on Conns (pardon spelling) doing some training?

Thanks,
Mark.

The Laser Pen is used to highlight a spot where repeated measurements can be taken whilst wet sanding (or polishing) to determine the exact amount of clearcoat (or paint) that has been removed.

Hi Alan,

Any ideas where you can pick up a cheep pointer with a perminant on/off switch?

Laser pointers are dangerous and hence why they tend to need constant pressure on the switch button to operate.

However, on/off switch types are available, try ebay.
