Extra-gentle hand polishing for high-gloss finishes. Fingertip-size foam pads with the remarkable Micro-Mesh™ abrasives on both sides.

The cushioning allows gentle polishing of finished surfaces to a mirror gloss. We use these regularly in our own shops for finish touch-ups and repairs.

The set of nine pads includes #1500, 1800, 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000, and 12000 grits. Use the grits in sequence to achieve a super gloss.

Micro-Mesh™ features tiny abrasive crystals on resilient cloth-backed latex. These gentle "cushioned" particles generate less heat and friction than ordinary finishing papers, don't load up as quickly, and last up to 15 times longer. Use Micro-Mesh with soapy water to produce a scratch-free mirror shine on finishes and pickguards. Great for repairing scratches and overspray. Use them for polishing frets, too.

Micro-Mesh was developed for polishing jet windshields to maintain their optical clarity. Imagine how your instrument will look!

The only bad thing is that the Micro-Mesh sheets disconnected from the foam pads after a while.

These things are great. Perfect size for fret polishing, and buffing out drop fills.

I just recieved the mesh pads, and am just amazed at the job they do polishing the fretboard, not to mention the smooth as glass finish on my frets. No more chemicals on my fretboard from here on in. I will certainly be ordering more of these. Thanks Stewmac for the great service.

I have a couple of sets of these, one for finish touchups and another for frets. When they clog up I just rinse them under the tap and they're ready to go again.Can't do without them.

Great pads, superfine cut clean. Gotta order more

Wouldn't be without them

I now use these for polishing my bone nuts and saddles from the raw state. They really look incredible. I have another set to polish the fretboard and frets. For Ebony and rosewood bridges, after using the full set, I don't apply any finish as they look that good.

The first time using micro mesch, it is incredible they do come loose but its not a problem.

Little beauties!

By Dr. Don from Melbourne, Australia

These little pads have given me a terrific finish to banjo and uke frets. After bevelling and taking off the sharp edges with conventional tools (files, dressing sticks using 800 grit), I work up the grits from 1500 to 12000 to produce a mirror shine. The soft pad makes conforming with the fret shape an easy process without marking the fretboard. I will definitely be ordering more.

These are great for touching up nicks and scrapes on the back of necks, and all so on the fret boards, wouldn't be with out them.

Even before using fine compound and swirl remover, these pads allow for a scratch-free surface that paper cannot provide.
