Sanding disc help


(dazco) #1

I am struggling to locate some 5 inch 8 hole decent sanding discs for a Flex random orbital sander. I was going to use abranet but they seem to expensive and mainly sold in boxes of 50. Any good alternatives or suppliers ?

While I am at it does anyone know if the extractor extension adapter for the flex sander fits a 20mm mirka hose?

Are the sia abrasives any good Russ? I think I may have used a wet and dry paper of theirs and it never fell apart during useā€¦

Yes they are mate, I used to use them a lot for cosmetic repair work and at that money for box of 100 you cant go wrong, will check on the mirka / flex pipes tomorrow and let you know. I have them both in back of the van

If the holes in those sia pads align with the holes in the Flex random orbital then that is going to be great! I have a standard hoover pipe and a 20mm mirka flexi pipe that connect to a nilfisk extractor I use

here you go Daz co. If you have a Mirka extractor aswell the flex machines also operate the auto suction operation

Have you tried Morrells, they are a great company and do lots of discs and started doing Mirka too

Good luck
