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 way to a perfect finish

I have used these for years. I wish StewMac would sell them individually (they are available). You will use the first three grits a lot. I buff after the 2400 pad and get a scratch-free finish. I use the pads up to 12000 to get under the mandolin fretboard extension and anyplace the buffer can't reach.

Brought out a shine!

Shined up a solid rosewood neck with these! Just a bit of fingerboard oil all over and it's a super fast and smooth neck!

Fine Finish !

I have used these to finish my last half dozen guitar projects, even though I have a buffing machine!

Get two sets!

I have a set that I use just for nuts and finishes, and a set for frets. Make sure you don't mix the two! They are excellent to have around and make polishing a breeze.

Works great

I used these on frets, mirror finish! Not sure I'd use them on a guitar finish. Maybe during a build but not on a guitar that just has a scratch or two. I'd just leave the scratch be.

Perfect size...

Great for polishing frets after crowning and work great for buffing and polishing finish around the cut outs in teles and strats...

Outstanding stuff!

I loved these so much I ordered another set. I use one set for polishing frets after crowning, the other is used for finish touch-ups only! Great stuff at a great price.

Micro Mesh Pads

I really like these and find lots of uses for them. (I just cleaned up all the scratches on the dust cover of my old turntable and it looks new!) I keep them stacked in order of grit in one of the bins in a drawer organizer in my workbench so I don't need to consult the color chart of grits. They have held up really well. Thanks StewMac!

Great Help on an ARCH TOP FEFIN

These pads worked great and held up very well. Pay close attention to color key. Perfect for a LP top refin.
