Dave….I have the exact same “push blocks” in my shop too! Just have to keep myself from grabbing one when I need to rough sand something fast…..they tend to be a little expensive for that.

Tried to google those Norton sand blocks and nothing comes up. Guess you bought the last pair on the planet.
Any idea where to buy them?

Thanks

I’m pretty sure i bought them at home depot, i still have them so i haven’t looked for any since i bought these. If i remember right they were in the paint section with the rest of the sand paper. Good luck

I prefer the concrete floats at the Borg. Nice firm sticky foam base. Good handles. Disposable.
