Floor Edgers

Floor edgers are much more specialized and gentle versions of the floor sanders. Floor edgers are used to sand around delicate corners and right up to the edge of walls.

Floor edgers undergo a lot less battering than normal floor sanders, but their job is still a tough one, so repairs are to be expected.

Common repairs include:

  • Replacing the on/off switch.
  • Switching out or cleaning the paper retaining bolt.
  • Tightening and oiling bearings.

Every DIYer and construction worker knows that the best quality comes from tools that are well cared for, and in the spirit of this, here are a few tips to help you keep your edger in tip-top shape.

  • Dust Removal - Make sure your sander or edger is hooked up to a dust bag or a dust removal pipe, to protect both your lungs and your sander from the harmful dust.
  • Air Quality - When working with any floor finishing equipment, be sure to wear a breathing mask capable of protecting you from harmful substances.
  • Noise - Most floor finishing equipment is very loud so don’t forget to wear good quality noise-cancelling headphones.
  • Maintenance - Always be sure to clean your tools, especially to remove dust and grit that may build up and cause unnecessary wear on moving parts.
  • Prepare - Prepare all surfaces by removing any small obstacles, hammering in protruding nails, filling cracks with the appropriate putty, removing mouldings and using the correct cleaning and sanding materials.
  • Double Check - Confirm the correct fit whenever you attach new sandpaper or a new polishing mat to your equipment, as loose ones can quickly damage a tool’s mechanisms.
