Does anyone out there have any online sources for velcro backed 6" sanding disks. :idea:

I am looking at the Ridgid 6" ROS. My Home Depot only has a limited selection of grits on hand. I hate to drive to the next bigger store, I always run out of things when I need them the most. :peace:

So Leo, do you make or deal with abrasives. Abrasives are one thing I use pretty frequently in my home shop. I like a good abrasive that lasts and gives a decent finish. I won't mention any names of where i have been getting my stuff but if prices are right I can always switch ;-) It'll be awhile though as I just bought close to $200 worth just before Christmas.

My company makes sandpaper and grinding wheels for welding and industrial applications, as well as auto body and woodworking.

Definitely not the cheapest around, but they are known as being the best quality in the industry. Norton and 3m can't touch our quality.

I do alot of the design work on the coated abrasives (sandpaper) for new products. I also do alot as an applications expert for sanding and grinding in a variety of applications. Take me all over the US and Europe.

In my former life, I designed and managed Autolite Spark Plugs, ignition wires, and Fram Oil Filter. But that was the mid 90's.

I love my job.

Leo, check your PM.

Thanks for the help so far. If anybody else has any suggestions or ideas let me know!!:pedro:

It looks like I am going to start stripping and redoing our kitchen cabinets this weekend. I am going to strip off the paint and earlier finishes with some stuff called stripeze. Then I am going to sand them all down smooth as a babys bottom and restain them a light or honey oak and then put a coat or two of poly. Plenty of work for me!!!! Of course thate are some new tool coming. :thumbsup:

It is a ploy to get power tools!!! Project=tools!! Plus the house gets upgrades!
:party:

Well I got the crew started on the kitchen this weekend. We got the doors off, hardware removed and the frames painted. :thumbsup:

We have to get the doors and drawer fronts stripped and sanded this weekend.:eek:mg:

Once we get them smoothed out then restained and then a couple coats of Poly. The crew will be busy!:truth:
