Woodworking Experience:
Works well
Work very well. I don’t use the yellow grit, it’s far to course (for me anyway), I trashed a pen with it. Lesson learned not the fault of the pads by any means.

Super easy and great finish
These are magical. Although I had many issues with my first pen making, these made the finish look great.

Good buy.
Very happy with my pen turners finishing kit. I did several acrylic pens and the kit helped me get a great finish on the pens.

Woodworking Experience:
Nothing better for CA glue finishing
Can't say enough how good these are for doing CA glue finish on my pens. I put them in a container of water to keep them clean and then work my way through the grits. Leaves a wonderful finish even before applying any polish. When I'm done, I wipe them off and let them dry until needed for the next pen. They last a long time keeping them rinsed in water.

Works as advertised
If you can remember which color comes next it works like a charm. I use them dry on wood. Write down the order of the colors in case you don't use them for a while.

does a nice job on pens
I just got into turning pens. These really work on pens. I don't know how long they hold up since i have only turned about 8 pens. They still seem to work as well as when new.

I really like finishing my wood turning with extremely high grit and a lot of time. I'm hoping these will be durable and make my finished pieces look super glossy before I even put finish on.

Most comments refer I think to sanding small jobs like pens. How desirable would it be for large bowls?
Ronnie V on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used these for years on my bowls. The larger micro mesh pads work very well on the larger pieces I make and the smaller ones work best for smaller bowls.
I usually sand through the grits until I get to about 600 then use these. I don't use much pressure, just enough to sand without tearing up the pads.
I have never had a problem with these. The size of the bowl is the only factor
Will these work for final hand sanding a wood carving project ?
Dick S on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No these pads are 2 sided and roughly 3/16" thick. They work well for pens and that's about the extent of it
can you use both sides of these pads (double sided)?
Newton K on Jan 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: yes you can.I use on acrylic pens have a cup of water to dip them and it cleans them out.
Aside from the number of pads & grit selection, how do these differ from the Micro-Mesh 2"x2" pads?
Bats_ on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The turning finishing kit came with two sets of 3. With yellow/green on one, orange/purple, blue/black. The six grits are perfect for acrylics and with this option you get 2 sets for lower price. I haven't ordered the micro-mesh but think that the difference (besides price) is number of pads and more grits. Frankly for my work (acrylic pens) the turning finishing kit works great and is a better deal.
