Do You Like a Smooth Bottom?


I sure do, but sanding the bottoms of pots is such a chore. These diamond hand polishing pads make it a little easier on your hands and do a great job on the bottoms of your pots. They come in quite few different grits. I've been using the 100 grit for the last couple of years. It was about time for a new one so Jeff said to order a 200 grit as well. This time I ordered two of the 100's because I am tired of trying to remember where I left the sanding pad! There is still some life left to the old one so with three hanging around, I shouldn't spend too much time searching for them.

I haven't been able to find them locally so I order them from toolocity.com. $10.50 each, and they last a long time. That's the end of my endorsements for the day. Now I will go back to my attempt at staying warm and thawing out the hot water line in the bathroom. No morning showers for us today... good thing we don't have to leave the house to go to work.
Stay warm!

  1. My mother would never buy pottery. Her excuse, the bottoms will scratch my tables.....

  3. One of those pads would be handy in my show kit just in case something slips past first inspection.

  4. I've been using a pad that I got at the local hardware store but it isn't a diamond bit. The clay I use is fairly smooth already but smoother would be much better, I'll have to try these. Isn't there an expression, smooth as a baby's bottom ?

    kind of scary the pipes freezing, hope they don't burst.

    1. Thankfully it's pex plumbing. It expands and contracts and typically doesn't burst. We go though this at least once every winter. This house just wasn't built for cold weather.
