    Comments about Woodturner's Sanding Pack featuring Abranet by Mirka :

    I have used the Woodriver sanding rolls for pen finishing for many years and was quite satisfied. I decided to try the Abranet Woodturner's Sanding Pack even though it was twice the price of sandpaper packs. It is definitely worth the price. I am able to reuse the Abranet strips on 3 or 4 pens before tossing them - sandpaper is only good for one pen. They also cut sanding time in half as compared to sandpaper. This will definitely be a staple in my penturning shop.

    Comments about Woodturner's Sanding Pack featuring Abranet by Mirka :

    I always using abranet and also bought micro mesh like abralon and mirlon from Mirka and they are the best I think as I use many different stuffs and you can control dust too. I bought mirka pad connected thru the hose to vacuum to suck the dust, but I work in kitchen, so space is not so great to do with other stuffs which create more dusk. The company can ask the Mirka to make at leas 1.5" wide.

    Doesn't last long

    • Hand Sanding

    Comments about Woodturner's Sanding Pack featuring Abranet by Mirka :

    I've been putting off buying this sanding pack because of the price and finally decided to give it a try. Not sure why there is so much hype about this product but I find that the sandpaper wears out very quickly when using on turned objects on a lathe. I was expecting it to last much longer. The rolls themselves can not be ripped by hand - (the higher grits can). Would have been nice to have had some sort of blade affixed to the box so that you can cut the strips while working near the lathe. Seems silly to have to use scissors for rolls that are packaged in what's supposed to be a convenient box. Also, since the paper is so expensive, it would have been nice if the grit was printed on the back of each piece in a more repeated pattern to ensure that even the smallest piece can be identified to be a certain grit. I find myself cutting small pieces and marking the back with a sharpie which adds another step to my sanding process.

    Comments about Woodturner's Sanding Pack featuring Abranet by Mirka :

    Perfect for pens and pepper mills. Because of air spaces, abranet sands faster and with less little scratches even on ebony. I wash them out after 4 pens and so far easily use for 6 pens. In the long run abranet is cheaper than the normal sanding strips. Great product. I may get larger sheets now as well.
