Sanding Mandrels, Blocks, Interface Pads
We now only carry one types of hook and loop mandrels (the things that go in the drill); It is the Tim Skilton mandrel. 1/4″ hex shaft (exclusive) with two different density of foam glued and screwed together
The economy mandrel we used to sell were a round shaft on yellow foam with a micro hook backing (not good for Abranet without a Disk Holder Protective Pad). We had so many problems with them and issues with Chinese manufacturing, we gave up
Use interface pads to vary the density of the mandrel. Medium is firm and used when you want aggressive sanding. Soft are used when you want less aggressive sanding and are good for warped pieces.
Use a Disk Holder Protective Pad (orange pad) as a sacrificial pad between the mandrel and the disk. Saves the hook and loop on the mandrel from the heat that melts the fingers.
