Anyone got a good source for inexpensive 12” sanding discs? So far I think ebay looks to be the cheapest but wanted to ask before I ordered some off ebay.

The last time I was in Harbor freight, last weekend, i am pretty sure I saw some there. I would check their website.

The HF in my area only carries the 120 grit discs and Klingspor wants over $4 per disc. So far ebay is looking like the best prices.

I’ve used Industrial Abrasives ( industrialabrasives.com ). They have 12” cloth sticky back disks at a price of 5 for $18.95. They have 5 grits and you can mix & match to make up the five. I don’t know about the Ebay quality, but Industrial Abrasives is good quality in my opinion.

I’ve also used Industrial Abrasives. Extremely high quality at a good price. I’ve been using them for well over 15 years.
