I first saw these at a woodworking in California about 8-9 years ago and bought a set that included three
grits. I was first attracted by the way they sanded endgrain. Using the coarse grit you can sand a 1/4”
radius on the end of a 2×4 in about 30 seconds. They are incredible. They work best on the edges of
wood but can also be used on flat surfaces.
They have a sanding surface made of tungsten carbide and will almost last you a lifetime. After 8-9 years the
center of my fine grit one is clogged beyond repair. The medium and coarse grit are still going strong.
They each come with a brass brush for cleaning them, and it stores in the handle which also fits perfectly
in your hand.
Since then, they have been bought put by Midwest Products which is basically a wooden model company
and not into woodworking or furniture, so you don’t see them advertised to us.
I bought another set, not only to replace the fine grit one, but to have another meduim and coarse grit ones
laying around so I don’t have too far to go to reach one. I use them on every project I make.
The set of three inculding shipping costs less than $26, but will last you years!
The best price I have found is from here:
You can’t go wrong with these and I would VERY highly recommend them.
