I’m about to replenish my supply of 6” Abranet sanding disks. The latest Woodcraft catalog (page 109) lists them at $20.99 for a ten pack (“22.99 for 80 grit) but I seem what appears to be the same on 2sand.com (www.2sand.com) for $9.76 per ten pack ($9.99 for 80 grit). Now, this is less than half Woodcraft’s price!

For 5 packs the shipping is $12.76 (Woodcraft shipping is about $10.00)

I don’t want to get into a discussion of why Abranet (simply the best sanding disks I’ve ever used) but want to know if anybody has heard of 2sand.com.

Thanks

I found 2sand a few months ago via a Google search. I was happy to see the BBB logo but didn’t buy from them. I just looked at their sight for rolls of paper for my Performax and noticed the rolls did not have pictures or detail descriptions – probably why I did not buy from them.

I use supergrit.com
prices everywhere are about the same.
don’t overlook shipping charges.

I’m a big fan of Abranet as well. I discovered ABs Gloves and Abrasives when I bought my Dynabrade sander (they had by far the best price) and then I discovered they also had the best price on Abranet discs! (not sure about the 6” price as I use 5” ones). I got free shipping the last time I ordered discs but that may have been a New Year’s promo.

I have ordered from 2sand before and no problems. I ended up ordering mine from Amazon and bought the 50 packs for about $35 each for the 5 inch size. I don’t remember the shipping charge and there were several vendors as I ordered 80 through 220 grit. Not cheap, but hoping performance pays for itself and want the better sanding dust removal.

I have used Industrial abrasive in the past.

http://www.industrialabrasives.com/

Easy order prices were good at the time and there product seems to hold well.
