I just got done staining a red oak floor with a dark stain (my first time using stain)
Before I stained I ran the OBS 18 with 120 grit paper mostly running the machine with the grain, except the last few rows where my back hit the wall I ran the machine perpendicular to the boards, and well it shows up like a sore thumb, 3 obvious rows coming through the stain looks like the outside of the machine left 3 inch rows.
Can I hand sand out and re stain? Is there a trick to getting a blend? What should I do? re-staining the floor is out of the question everything else looks great. I thought you could run this machine any direction but boy did that turn out to be a mistake. Any help thanks.
