4 Responses to Dealmonger: Three Microplane Sanding Discs For $14

  1. I bought a set of these a few years ago, blinded by the marketing, and wasn’t impressed. They really gave my sander a workout. They also would grab when you wouldn’t expect it and leave tiny gouges. They do remove wood like nobody’s business though . It might be more accurate to say they are more like 20, 40 and 60 grit equiv.

    I’m with Ben — I got mine a few months ago and thought they would be great for stripping paint. Nope, recommended use is only on bare wood.

    So, I gave them a whirl and they really remove the wood, but left some serious marks that required going over again with regular sandpaper.

    Again, Ben is dead-on on the grit conversion.

    Removal was a bit tough…you have to use a screwdriver to pry the pads off. My guess is that they really wear down the loops on the base pad.

    I don’t consider $14 to be much of a deal since I had to re-sand everything I just did.

    Let’s make that three votes against. I bought them too, and had exactly the problems described.

  4. OK, sure. But how about when you needed to extract information from a secret agent? How’d they do then?

    (I took one look at them and instantly heard “And now, Mr Bond…”)
