Today we were told by Mirka that the Handy sander interface pad is now available. What does that mean exactly?!
The 5mm thick velcro backed pad attaches direct to the Handy backing pad, and then you attach your Abranet abrasive to the interface pad.
As long as you use the interface pad when you sand, you will protect the backing pad and the Handy should pretty much never wear out. Also, with the extra padding you can tackle profiles a bit easier.
I think this is a big day in Mirka Handy land
