I heard about these here on another post and decided to order some.
I cut my own paper and it sticks well however it wears out fast due to the small area.
If you press too hard for too long you’ll heat the pad up and the foam will melt. A bit of CA glue will fix it.
The sponges under the abrasive are great for hard to get to places that require intense sanding that you couldn’t do with any other tool. I use it on my turnings to get even sanding along the curves and to avoid the straight lines sanding with the lathe on produces.
All in all it’s a great tool if you learn how to use it properly.
Never use Abrinet abrasives as they are porous and will ruin the Velcro.
