Default Woodcraft Mesh Turners Sanding pack

https://www.woodcraft.com/products/w...h-sanding-pack

I was in Woodcraft Sunday and saw this, and picked it up. It is the non backed sand paper in the 15ft rolls. I figured since the Abranet is $52, and this being $25 it was the best time to pick it up. The regular roll of sandpaper is a little bit more expensive for 20ft rolls.

No I am not giving this away or selling it, just thought it was a good deal and some might be interested.

As a matter of fact, when I bought it, the owner of the Woodcraft store was standing there, and I said the price on this will go up, and he agreed with that.

It's good to see there are some similar products to Abranet coming to the market. Since I don't turn a lot of pens anymore I won't be buying this. I buy Abranet in wider sheets to use on larger turnings. I also cut the sheets into discs to be able to power sand bowls so since the Woodcraft product doesn't have 'hook and loop' backing I wouldn't be able to use it.

I like Abranet a lot but the Woodcraft product looks like it could be a great alternative for those who make a lot of pens.

I'd love to hear about your experience with this product. I am a huge fan of Abranet, but as you mentioned it is rather expensive. I look forward to hear how this product performs.
Thanks for sharing this information.

Jim,
I just used it on some acrylic, and it performed just as well as when I used abranet. I get a small pack of the abranet with the different grits a while ago (I think it was 2 sheets of each) and they work out (of course), and was not able to find another one.

It didn't leave and residue that you sometimes get with other paper.

I give it a 8 out of 10. I am not sure how long it will hold up.

I'm curios as to how you tell what grit it is after the markings are worn off from use?

Hi guys , I've been using abranet for a while now . I bought the packages from William Wood-Write and cut them in half these are the 3X4 inch pieces . I am a autobody tech by trade and have use a lot of sand paper, both wet and dry, open coat and close coat . I tried using a method I used to sand cars , I put a couple drops liquid soap in the water and dip the abranet paper in the water and sand my pen blanks . I have abranet paper up to 800 grit . I still finish my acrylics to 12000 but the abranet works great . Give it a try.

Next time I'm in Dallas visiting my daughter I will pick this up. I hate ordering small items from WC or Rockler or other places that charge $8-$12 for shipping on the items of $10 - $30 that don't weigh but a pound or two at the most.

When I use them I lay them out in order

One thing I have found this does not seem to "Grip" and take off as much as regular sandpaper. However it IMO gives a smoother finish. So if you have a somewhat rough finish when you start sanding you have a lot more work ahead of you than if you are using the sandpaper.
