    Black and Decker ROS polishing pads

    I have the Black and Decker 5 inch hook and loop ROS. I'm trying to find polishing pads for it to be used on a Minwax finish. Thank you for any help.

    Pretty much any 5" or 6" hook and loop polishing pads should work with your sander. Here are a bunch to browse through:

    I have the same sander. Will there be an advantage to using a slightly larger buffing pad when it comes to edges and concave surfaces?
    Cheers,

    Based on my experience using 2 1/4" and 3" sanding disks on a 2" ROS for bowls and other turned things, I think there can be advantages to using a slightly oversized buffing pad.

    Somebody makes a 2" ROS?

    Yep, it's pneumatic, made by Grex. I also have a 3" Metabo electric ROS. Both are very handy for turned stuff.
