I cannot tell you how many times I have walked behind my American Sanders FloorCrafter. How many hours my hands have touched the Super 7R edger. The years have passed quickly and the flooring is in the millions of square feet. So how do I express in writing the best way to sand a floor? Truth is, at first my reaction was that it will be easy, but not so easy at the same time.
First, I pictured myself instructing an NWFA class, going over the units in my mind. It’s not so easy to do without a sander in my hands. Then my thoughts went to the different style of sanders: drum vs. belt, toe kick edger vs. standard edger. That is not going to work unless I have a hands-on demo to show you how they all work. Then, on a job in Knoxville, it came to me. It’s not just knowing how to run the units that makes us better; it’s the details of “what” they do that makes the floor look great.
