Laguna tools have variations of brush heads, resulting in dozens of brush head options. For example, using a flatter style brush will help you to achieve a hand-sanded finish on profiles like moldings and raised panel doors. It is also commonly used in raw wood sanding to open the grain for stain and then used for sealer sanding in between coats of stain or primer simply by changing the grit of flatter strip. Wire brushes are most commonly used to achieve a distressed or weathered finish. Nylon brushes work well for cleaning reclaimed wood or light distressing. These are just a few of the different applications for each brush type.
