Anybody used roloc type discs with the appropriate pad for power sanding.
All comments appreciated before I get some.
Thanks
Phil

I use them with the backing that Roloc makes. I am an odd man out in that I use an angle grinder for sanding. I made an adapter to reduce the male thread on the grinder to a female thread that takes the Roloc backer. I buy the discs on Ebay, since the local prices here are crazy.

Phil

I used them for 12 years in the military and love them.  Good thing about them is they will not fly off and the grit lasts along time.

If you know of a place to get them now I sure would love to know!!!!

Thanks all for the heads up.
Most ebay suppliers will not ship to south africa.
Found a site which has all grits and sizes and free shipping. Bang good (one word dot com).
Shipping is a bit slow but reliable. Lots of stuff there.
Got a whole lot of screwdriver bits when I saw the roloc
stuff. It comes duty free as well.
