Stikit Gold Paper Self-adhesive Abrasives

Expanded selection • Convenient sets available
Stikit™ is 3M's professional Gold abrasive paper with handy self-adhesive backing. We supply it conveniently sized to fit our fret/fingerboard shaping tools: a real time-saver.

They simply last longer!
Stikit abrasives cut like a file, and last longer than regular sandpaper. The sharp aluminum oxide grit is slower to load up with sanding dust, too. Outstanding durability and performance have made Stikit the favorite in our own shops.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers and Fret Cutters. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

renewable files

Apart from the various other uses suggested by your reviewers, this paper is at it's most useful for my 'files'. Take a flat (or slightly radiused) piece of rosewood or maple, make a file shape with a nice comfortable handle, stick on your 'stikit' of choice and file away at your bridges, saddles, nuts, dovetails, chair legs, fingernails, pick up cavities and so on.

My Favorite Abrasive Paper!

My Favorite Abrasive Paper! Love the addition of the different grits. Doesn't load up like others. Very convienent to be able to cut for use as desired too!

Best sandpaper you'll ever use.

The 3M Stikit sandpaper range is by far the best quality paper you will ever use. It may be twice the price of other papers, but it easily lasts 4 times as long before loading up. These self-adhesive rolls are an extremely convenient format, and match up well with a number of StewMac tools.

Grit that goes the distance

Well, yes this stuff really does cut it. Australia has good suppliers of all the major brand abrasives but not all are up to the challenge of our extra hard (high silica content) woods. I only wish I had found this stuff 20 yrs ago. I even use the 80g on the drum sander- it lasts longer than cloth backed and does not clog or glaze over like these do. I give it a 4 star only because there is no backing paper which does help keep it clean. All said I'm a believer.

Sand now

The best thing about it is that it stick to anything, and conforms to any surface.

Stikit paper

Best sandpaper yet. Try sticking it back to back making little sanding pads.

Stikit Gold Paper

I have used this product for a few years now and I continue to use it because it cuts fast and doesn't load up. I am glad that more grits have become available.

Stikit Gold Paper

This sandpaper is a lot better then regular sandpaper . It lasts longer and doesn't build up as quickly. Only the price is keeping me from giving 5 stars.

Great product

Really useful stuff for sticking to blocks of various shapes, lining radius dishes and flat surfaces to finishes applications. Even stick it to stairs for safety!

320-grit, 15 yards

It consumes very fast! After 3-4 passes over the frets is good to replace. It is better for wood than metal.
