    Picked up some Festool Wings the other day. They should come in handy holding the clips on the walls that we use when installing wall pads. It should almost save one person on the install crew. I would have never known about them if not for an older post on this site.

    Congrats Kurt, just curious to know how that works, don’t think I have seen those before, and not quite sure how they work.

    I’ve pondered getting some of those. Let us know how you like em.

    I picked up some of the new Diablo sanding mesh pads. I was really impressed too. I’ve only used one, brand new piece so far, but it left such a nice finish at just 120.

    How do they work for the dust collector, did you see a difference

    I will be trying those, too, just as soon as I use up my supply of paper backed discs.

    The Bosch discs get very good marks in some of the reviews I have seen from Europe. Much more resistant to ripping than some others.

    I find the holes don’t line up very well with my sander.

    Glad to her you like them. Never really paid attention to seeing that type of sanding pads.

    I hadn’t heard of Diablo SandNet, though there is an earlier thread about it.

    Can’t find it anywhere in Canada.

    I’ve used Abranet and like it.

    And there’s less heat build up which is a big plus in some applications. I’ve moved all my sanding pads where posssible to Mirka style Abranet meshes. They’re just way better and I believe it saves time and money over paper backed pads.

    Do they come in different sizes, or do I need to cut them,

    They have every size imaginable it seems.

    Just junk that old sander Dirty. They’ll line-up just fine on any of the newer sanders out there now. Make sure also that you buy a right handed sander too. Righty sander disks are much more available out there in stores than for left handed sanders.

    I have only used them once so far but it seemed to go really well. I haven’t ever used any high end sanding discs though, so I don’t know if just about anything might be a step up, lol. The main thing I noticed was that there weren’t any swirls in the surface and that’s a big difference in my mind.

    @boschmanbrian I only saw 5” options at my hardware store, but that was fine since I wasn’t using them at home but at work on an old DeWalt ROS. The pack came with a specialty pad that connected the abrasive net to the sander that was a soft foam with perforated hole patterns so you could pop out the little holes where you wanted. It seemed to work just fine – the DeWalt has a pretty standard eight hole pattern.
