    What to you guys use to remove MDF fast?

    I need to go pick up something to fix some uneven places on the outside of my box. I was thinking a rasp would be good for removing MDF pretty quickly? What do you guys use?



    Im better than you.

    Belt sander with 60 grit



    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    I got a cheapo (black and decker I think) at Lowes for around $30, I didn't get a good one because I rarely use it.

    Sanding block and some 60grit. Also depending one how large the area a rasp will work also. I have used rasps to take down uneven spots on boxes before. Just not a good idea for large areas.

    A belt sander will run for $60 and up, but I believe homedepot rents them. You will still pay more than $10 but at least you will not have to sand it down by hand.

    a router with a flush trim bit would do the job rather quickly
