Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Sander came in today. Got some Mirka Gold and Iridium sandpaper. The Iridium is ceramic based and suppose to last 3x as long. Not quite double the price of the Gold paper. We'll see how it lasts.

Planned on keeping this in the sprayroom. My main reason for getting it is drawer boxes. Specifically the inside of the box which has 8 inside corners that need to be sanded. I'm hoping that I won't have to do any hand sanding.

Today to test it out I was doing white wood sanding. I used the Ceros to sand the faces of the faceframes and the large areas of the box. I used the Deos to sand the internal edges of the face frames and break the corners of the face frame. It excelled at both of these tasks and I didn't have to touch sandpaper with my fingertips, which is thee main reason I got it.

Now I'm going to have to get a dust extractor for this sander. Looking at the Fein Turbo I 5.8 gallon sander - price mostly. Not sure about not having variable suction on the vacuum. But I always used my Turbo II on full speed.

Do any of your suppliers carry surfprep products? I'm betting that machine will work as well as my little 3x4 surprep air sander for sanding between coats. Their fine grit sponges work great between coats.


I can't remember the paper we switched to but it puts mirka gold in the dust as far as longevity goes. Also outlasts the Iridium paper we used to use. I'll try to remember to take a pic of the box when I go down to the shop this morning.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Don't know of any surfprep suppliers. I bought it for the sprayroom for larger pcs. I'm working on some doors and I'll see how it handles that. I'm a bit worried about burning through the finish more than anything. Because I push my finishes timewise, I got the Mirka Gold along with the Iridium because if it clogs the sanpaper the Iridium will be worthless for longevity and I'd rather just use the gold if I'm going to toss it early.

This especially happens in the winter because of the lower temps compared to summer.

But the fact that I can use it on the face frames for white wood sanding made this sander a whole lot handier.

Surprised about the Iridium. It hasn't been out that long as far as I know. Being ceramic based I find it hard to believe that it can be beat by that much of a margin. Let me know what it is when you get the chance plz.

Maybe I'm thinking of a different Mirka paper I was using. I know it was a better grade than Gold. I'll check that too. My memory isn't very good on that kind of stuff. Once I find something I'm happy with, I just text my salesman a picture & say send more of this.

What size pad does that sander have? If it's 3x4, I can send ya a couple of the surfprep pads we use to sand between coats. They make it in 5" round as well, I know because we use it on our larger panels. As for clogging, the nice thing about the surfprep, when it clogs, ya hit it with compressed air & the clogging blows right off.

Send surfprep an email & ask them for a supplier in your area, you won't regret it.

We buy it from Compi Distributors in Kansas City. CDI They also sell me my blum hardware at better prices than anywhere else I've ever found. $8.99/pair for edge tandems. $3.??/pr for ball bearing slide

I've gone to using nets on the sanders for between coats sanding. They fall apart before they clog. I believe there are nets for the Mirka's.

We use them between coats on latex. Everything else clogged between coats of latex.

My pad is 3x5, actually a bit bigger. The Iridium is pretty new, but it might have been out longer than I've known about it. It is ceramic based instead of Aluminum Oxide based. I've used some of the 5" round stuff, 120 grit, and it works nice and last a while longer. But not incredibly longer liked I hoped. I'll see how this works out. I have to get a vacuum now. Looking at the low level Fein Turbo I. $260 and it has the switched outlet built in. Complaints on the hose and it's not a variable suction are making me hesitant. But everything else is substantially higher in price and I'm not looking for a high use vacuum, just something that'll do the job.

Get the 2 pack of Metabo asr35 deal going this month.

Can you actually touch a corner without marring the adjoining face?

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


About the marring, right now I'll say yes. But I only have about 45 minutes of use on the sander. The big test will come with the next batch of drawer which is likely weeks away. It's designed for getting into tight places. It also has an interface pad with angled edges that keeps the machine away from the adjacent surface and lets the sandpaper reach the corner.

It still bounces a bit on the edge, so I'm not sure if it's damaging it or not. So far I'd say not. But time will tell.

The point is you’d spend 285 on a vac after you split the deal or decide to use 2
