Description

In Detail

Micro-Mesh is a unique cushioned abrasive that produces a very fine and uniform scratch pattern.

If you finish to around 400g with standard abrasives then start using the 1,500g Micro-Mesh you should get excellent results. The 12,000g will leave a scratch pattern that cannot be detected by the human eye. Micro-Mesh offers outstanding results for a huge range of applications, and is proving to be extremely popular with pen turners, musical instrument makers, furniture restorers and anyone who requires a highly polished surface. Can be used wet or dry, you will wonder how you managed without it.

Supplied as a pack of nine double sided 50 x 50mm soft touch pads ranging from 1,500g to 12,000g. N.B. Colour chart provided is a guide only and pads may vary in colour.

Handy go-to set for finishing small items.

Great value for money, I have used my set to polish resin 20-30 times over the last year and they still have plenty of life left in them. I wouldn't personally recommend them for wood, as you would be better sticking with normal sand papers, but they are perfect for resin and give a great finish when used with a little water alone. I always sand as far as I can with normal sand papers first, up to about 320 and then start on the pads to give them a fighting chance.

Rinse in a little water and good to go next time.

Again, don't push too hard, let the pad do the work and you will find they work much better and last quite a while.

Highly Recommended!

At first glance, these seem expensive at about a pound per pad. But... having used them a few times now on acrylic pens I would say they're well worth the money.
I agree with previous comments, use these to finish sand/polish. You'll wear them out too quickly otherwise.
I do a few grades of emery cloth first before starting with these, wet. Then, every 2nd grade, I stop the lathe and rub the pen blank along its length to lose any scratches. Finally, at slowish speed on the lathe, I give it a dab of T-cut to buff it up.

Brilliant - literally

My set arrived yesterday and I used them for the first time today. I used them dry on some English Yew and wet on an acrylic pen. Stunning results on both

Very Smooth!

Excellent for pen turners and folk wanting a very smooth finish suitable for polishing to a high shine.
Make sure that you sand through to around 400g before using these then use them in rotation for a very smooth surface. I finshed off with CA Glue and several coats of Friction Polish for a very high shine.
