About TruFlex Sanders
Necessity is the mother of invention.
Tom Foster has been restoring classic autos for over 50 years and is well versed in the joys and the pains of each endeavor. However, after preparing and painting a Cobra kit car body for a client, Tom had an epiphany. With the tools available on the market, the dramatic curved surfaces were difficult to create and finish properly...it was equally difficult to make the flat surfaces perfectly flat. The need for a better sanding tool was obvious.
In addition to restoring autos, Tom is an accomplished inventor, so naturally he went to the drawing board. The resulting TruFlex line of sanders are brilliant in the simplicity of their design and ease of use. TruFlex Sander's patented design allows the spring's natural properties to provide both a perfectly conformed radius sanding curve and when needed a true flat sanding surface (no matter how much force is applied)..
