When you have a small set of hands this block is the way to go. It has a small comfortable ball grip and the pad size is a useful 125 x 75mm. We recommend cutting down 125mm hook & loop abrasive discs to use for this pad. The plasticized foam backing is moulded to fit in the hand and is great for fine finishing work.
Why Hand Sand?
While many people choose to use belt, random orbit and regular orbital sanders to sand their work pieces - hand sanding is THE best way to finish any work piece. The main reason for this is that you can purely sand along the grain and the level of control when hand sanding is unparalleled. Also, when moving away from flat surfaces it is very difficult to sand into mouldings and other shapes using powered sanders. It is hard, but rewarding work and fine craftsmen eschew power sanders for hand sanding.
For all the above reasons we are now stocking a range of hand sanding pads that are some of the best found anywhere in the world. Fully manufactured in Taiwan, each pad is designed to fit comfortably in the hand to reduce fatigue, only the highest quality materials are used in manufacturing and will last literally for a lifetime if used in a normal way. Of course all of these factors ensure that using these when hand sanding will produce far superior results to what you would normally find when using hand sanding blocks etc.
