    @boschmanbrian, @madman_us, @58chev, @r-ice, thanks!

    @r-ice I bought some sandpaper just now to see how it handles different grits, but I keep hearing about that Mirka sand paper – what’s the all the hype about?

    Its similar to drywall mesh paper. A vac can get almost everything so the grit never gets clogged of gummed up. Lasts longer and woeks cleaner

    It is delicate if you snag it though

    @montreal_medic I’m terrible with snagging paper on rough edges – the pads on all my sanders over the years have gouges and burnt areas all over them, so I don’t know if I could make it worth my while to invest in something that costs more if my poor sanding habits will ruin them faster.

    And also, thanks for the tip to let it break in. I let it just run a bit last night and this morning, and I’ll be doing a ton of sanding with it today prepping more plywood for a feature wall, so I’m curious to see how it handles after a few hours of use. It is definitely aggressive, but so far I’m liking that!

    yups eric is right, to me it is nearly the ultimate sanding paper you can get. As long as you pair it with a dust deputy and vac you will be good to go. The vac keeps the abranet clog free and you can sand for longer and keep up the pace. I prefer it to most sandpapers.

    Congrats on your new sander @cmeyer25. A good sander makes life much easier.

    #598555

    oooh that is a great sander, now to start ordering mirka sand paper.

    I wished I would have those on hand today for removing 3 layers of latex paint and texture on the wall.
    Might need to get my hand on the 1250 as well.

    And also, thanks for the tip to let it break in. I let it just run a bit last night and this morning, and I’ll be doing a ton of sanding with it today prepping more plywood for a feature wall, so I’m curious to see how it handles after a few hours of use.

    charlie there is also a thread for it. worth checking out, great tips for sand paper and other useful tips.
