Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Pads

About This Item

Extra-gentle hand polishing for high-gloss finishes. Each pad features Micro-Mesh® resilient abrasive on both sides of a foam center. The cushioning allows gentle polishing of finished surfaces to a mirror gloss.

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 Soft Touch Pads with a little soapy water as a lubricant to produce a scratch-free mirror shine (avoiding soaking the pads in water when not in use). We use these regularly in our own shops for finish touch-ups and repairing scratches on pickguards. Use them on for polishing frets, too.

Great for polishing

A bit pricy but works very well

Very handy

Where were these things all my life? Seriously, very useful, durable pads. I have even buffed out pickguards with them. A real plus for chip repair finishing along with flex papers. Well worth the money.

Great help in getting that "wet look"

These are great! I use them a lot. Great help when repairing nicks or scratches. I use them when making bone nuts to get a polished look really fast.
I wish they were bigger (for bigger areas) but with patience, you can get incredible results.

I love these pads.. they wear fairly quickly and mesh lifts after washing but still love them.. will always have a set of these nearby

Good for fret polishing

By


I found these to be most effective for fret polishing; they can get your frets feeling silky smooth. I didn't find them as useful for finish touch-up, though; I still needed to go over the areas with polishing compound.

Falls apart when wet

By


I just received the micro mesh pads last week and have used them twice. When I put them in warm soapy water the second time, the mesh started lifting off of the most of the pads. Very, very, dissapointing. I'm sure these would be great used dry for frets or fret boards, but not wet.

Getting more use in my workshop

By


These are great for blending in super glue drop fills with modern poly finishes. They've been getting more use in my workshop than I originally thought. Will always have them handy.

Just as described

Very handy little abrasive pads for fine work

Nice and shiny!

By


Works great for what I needed it for. I went through all the grits as I polish my frets by the time I'm done with them it leaves a nice shine on the frets. Love it. Save me some time with some 12000 grit sandpaper and polishing compound.

Rub it and see.

By


Very nice kit. I very much like the padded effect as it does not leave pressure channels directly beneath my finger contact point.
