  • Sanding and Planing High Spots in OSB is Wearing out Sandpaper and planer

    Hello,

    I have some high spots on my OSB subfloor that after moving my 6ft level around I see it would be far better to remove or reduce the high spot rather then to put in a filler around it. The issue is that it takes forever in that it dulls the 80 grit sandpaper in no time, dulled my grinder too, and the blade on my electric planer now needs replacing. It all worked after much effort but it took a long time too. I think I have a few more to do…. So is there a better way to do this using a different tool, technique, or type of sandpaper or planer blade? Thanks!

      Thanks Joe! Good information, I’m going to make a run this week to Harbor Freight Tools to pick up some of the items you mentioned. I think it might be the glue or the hardener they used in the OSB as to why it wears out the paper so easy. I was careful to counter sink nails and screws. (I think I might have hit one though.)
