Rockler Contour Sanding Grips

Our double-ended contour sanding blocks make it easy to sand both concave and convex shapes without distorting or diminishing the crispness of the profile. Each Sanding Grip has a convex profile on one end and a concave profile on the opposite end. The two ends are connected by a narrow flexible section that provides a comfortable grip, and can also be used for sanding. Made from a flexible rubber that adapts to minor variations in diameter. Grippy texture prevents abrasive slipping and hand fatigue. Set includes a total of six blocks with the following inside/outside diameters: 1/4'', 3/8'', 1/2'', 5/8'', 3/4'' and 7/8''. Diameters are molded into the rubber for easy selection.

(1) 1/4'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 3/8'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 1/2'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 5/8'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 3/4'' Contour Sanding Grip
(1) 7/8'' Contour Sanding Grip

Great way to sand curves
I build my wife an oak book shelf that had a lot of curved molding. These worked great to sand them to prep for staining.

Great for refinishing old trim!
I have a lot of quarter sawn oak trim to refinish... these make it so much easier to get all of the old finish off of the wood.

Highly Recommend
Just refinished an oak entry door.
The sanding would have damaged the contours without these grips.

Rockler Contoured Sanding Grips
Yep, should have bought these years ago! Would have saved my fingers! I restore wood windows, and this kit has every contour you'd ever need. I also bought the angled sanding grips, and use them on every window. I prefer these over the sanding sponges (wear out quickly), and the hard sanding blocks (too rigid). These have just enough flexibility to follow the curve, and give a much more consistent finish!

Great for hand sanding complex shapes
These flexible rubber are made from dense enough rubber that they hold shape really well yet can bend around simplex curves so you can sand all the details on your furniture. Nice size that only requires sheets that you cut down for 1/4" palm sanders to be cut in half so no need to have special sizes for the set.

With joints in chair rail on long runs and other trim inevitably different mill runs don't match perfectly. I think this will help me sand these joints so they will be much less noticeable,

Do you carry a flat sanding grip?. I know you did in the past. What you show are all contoured.
Mudd S on Nov 25, 2017
How long are they?
Jeff on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The length is 2 3/4" long.
Are these reusable? In other words, they're expensive for using on just one project.
Starwyn S on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are reusable. They're rubber and you wrap sandpaper around them. I really like these in particular as they have two profiles on each blank. Often I am able to sand the mating sides with only one pad that way.
Is that 9.99 for one piece or one set?
Mike L on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You get the set for that price. I use my set frequently. E.g., I build cedar soap dishes with multiple grooves. The sanding grips easily handle the variety of surfaces.
The reason I buy Rockler's red sanding blocks is that they don't leave black marks. These sanding grips appear to be black; do they ever leave black marks on painted surfaces? I want to use them to sand prior to and after priming and painting coats.
J C on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There should be no reason to have the contour sanding grips come in actual contact with the piece you are sanding, the sandpaper covers the grip when using, whether sanded with the rounded edge or the convex profile opposite the rounded edge. I personally use the for pieces that I have routed i.e. Mouldings for various projects.
Based on the reviews it seems these work. However, I have a question. Are the sizes listed exact? If they are, wouldn't wrapping a piece of sandpaper around it make the diameter larger, or smaller depending on which edge you are using? For example, if I have a 1/2" cove and wrap the sandpaper over the convex end of the 1/2" grip will sanding enlarge the cover to over 1/2"? Currently I use a dowel that's less than 1/2".
Barry M on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you use the 3m sanding paper, it is so thin you won't notice. It also lasts longer than regular sanding paper.
