Pedal wheel is a tool used to help the application of wood filler. Wood filler that serves to fill the wood pores and grains is viscous material. Application of wood filler manually could be tough work, spent lot of time and effort. Then to help the filler application we can use the pedal wheel. Pedal wheel is pedal that could rotate with felts at the tip. When it is operated, the wheel rotates its felts to wipe the filler in a circular motion. It works as the circular motion of the hand in the filler application with cloth, rag or scotch brite. Because it uses the engine power to do the mechanical motion, then the filler applications can be expected to be more consistent with the less manpower.
Apply the filler to the wood surface evenly to the surface. We can pour the filler on wood surface or apply the filler using brush or rag. Make sure we put enough filler layer at the surface.
Then turn on the pedal wheel and move it at the surface overall. Let the pedal rotate and the felt spread the filler in the circular motion. Moving the pedal until the filler layering the overall surface, keep to move the pedal until the filler is medium dry, then take off the wheel.
Wipe off the filler excess at the surface with clean rag or steel wool. Make sure clean the surface and the filler is only left inside the pores and grain, no filler is in the surface.
Let the wood filler to dry and then continue with the sealer application as the next finishing process.
Things to be considered in the uses of pedal wheel.
- Pedal wheel only can be used to apply the wiping filler.
- Do not press peddle wheel to the surface.
- Do not rotate too fast.
keep the pedal wheel to be clean
- Keep the felt to be elastic and flexible.
- Make sure that we follow the technical data from the filler
