Hardwood floor refinishing tips/sources

15 years ago

I refinished one floor of a house with Traffic and the results were acceptable, but I have a few questions for the next floor.

First, the only buffing machines I can rent are 17 inch machines. Is it acceptable to use 16" maroon pads on these machines? Does anyone know of an online source (I've already checked locally) for 17" maroon pads?

Second, when sanding around door frames, is there a good way to get closer than I can with a 1/4 sheet finishing sander?

Third, the applicator is rather firmly fitted to the t-bar. Is there a good way to get it off without getting sealer/poly all over my hands?

Finally, I haven't done stairs yet. Any tips for working on stairs you think would be helpful are appreciated.
