    Sounds like an interesting product. Has anyone used it? Worth the bucks?

    I bought a variety of those at a woodworking show and wasn't impressed with them. Didn't last that long, but I was sanding end grain cutting boards at the time, and I think that was hard on them. Also, the coarse one left scratches; more so that regular coarse grit POS pads. My 2 cents.

    I haven't used them, but have seen two or three other posts around the net that weren't too impressed with them either.

    what is it called

    Anyone thought of these, sold by Woodcraft. Kind of pricey but should work.

    I have never used them but have used similar smaller abrasives.
