PSA Sanding Discs1/13/15
We use 5" 5 and 8-hole electric orbital sanders in our shop. I like the 3M 900 DZ ceramic cloth backed discs, but am starting to have difficulty finding them. Wondering if anyone has recommendations for a reliable, affordable source, or if there are any alternate discs (preferably 8-hole PSA) that anyone would recommend. Tried Mirca and some Klingspor, but just wasn't impressed with the longevity.
David, I've used a lot of different brands but the ones my guys like the best is the red line from industrialabrasives.com , I tried a box this week that was actually more expensive and had to listen to them complain all week that it didn't last long. We've used bothe the red line and the white rhino stick from them but the red line is the favorite here. I think a box of 100 is about 16-17 bucks depending on grit. This is my go to place for sanding, scuffing, belts, sheets, everything. Hope that helps
I switched to the "screen" type sanding
Our stearated film disks have out run those ceramic disks many times. We do both 5 and 8 hole psa.
Carborundum premier red. The pink and white rolls. Way better than anything else I have ever used.
Yes, I use them for wood.
