Details

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!

micro mesh pads

I absolutely love these pads. I keep two or three fresh sets on hand at all times. I use them for everything from hardware polishing to finish buffing and everything in between. Nut's, pickgaurds, chrome parts, you name, they do it all. The only warning I will give to perspective buyers would be not to use these pads with Murphy's wood oil soap, There is some kind of solvent present in that product which eats away at the adhesive that holds the micro paper to the backing pads, causing them to fall apart. It only take about ten minutes for it to eat through the adhesive. If you want to use a soap solution as a lubricant, I recommend dish soap. It works just as well as Murphy's without the side effects. other than that, I say buy lots of them!
