I just discovered these and used them on my Valentine’s Box 2008 project. Because of the small size of the box and the rounded bottom made by the bowl/tray router bit, I needed something flexible to follow the curves. I also need something that I could agressively work some problem areas left by the router.

My regular sandpaper didn’t seem agressive enough and foam backed sanding pads are too stiff on the sanding surface to smoothly follow the tight curves. These pads are much more flexible on the surface than the standard foam backed. They also have a lot of bite. I worked my biggest problem areas with the 120 grit and it really cut through the material.

I liked these a lot. Flexible and fast cutting.

I love these too. I use the 320 for sanding finishes.
