3M Scotch-Brite Pads

About This Item

Long lasting, and more durable than steel wool
Use 3M Scotch-Brite Pads for cleaning and deburring metal parts or scuff-sanding a finish. Great for waterbased finishes. Will never rust.

For cleaning, polishing, and refinishing
Reusable Scotch-Briteā„¢ pads have many uses in the shop. They're durable, washable, and won't shed the way steel wool does. This means no surprise rust specks in a waterbased finish, and no pesky metal particles that stick to your pickup magnets.

We picked the 3 pads we use the most in our shop:

    #7447 General Purpose Pad, maroon
  • Ideal for scuff-sanding between finish coats and removing polyester finishes with a chemical stripper
  • Similar to grade 1 steel wool
  • 360-400 grit aluminum oxide abrasive
    #7448 Ultra Fine Pad, gray
  • The last step to a flawless finish
  • Useful for de-glossing a sticky neck
  • Similar to grade 00 steel wool
  • 2000-2500-grit silicon carbide abrasive
    #7445 Light Duty Pad, white
  • Lasts longer than steel wool and doesn't shed
  • Cleans and polishes hardware and frets
  • Similar to grade 0000 steel wool
  • Super-fine 2500-grit aluminum silicate abrasive

Each reusable pad is 6" x 9" x 0.250" (152mm x 229mm x 6mm).

I wanted to try these so added them to an order to justify the cost of shipping. Otherwise, I see them in hardware stores so better most times to buy them there.

This is one of those things that you'll find many uses for once you have it in your drawer.

Great to have around!

Thought i would try these pads to scuff up some hardware rather than using store bought sponges. It is great to have 3 different textures to use. All minds of uses for these!

Terrific

Besides guitar building and repair I do a lot of work on boats. I've been using these for years with great results. Steel wool on a boat is disastrous as ANY steel particles left behind rust and will badly stain wood.

Not For Me

I love Stew Mac, and I've been a customer for many years. This is the first time I've written a negative review. I bought all of the grades of this product and I did not like the results for any of the uses I tried. At least the title is accurate. These are scotch-brite pads intended for cleaning dishes and greasy engine parts. That's what I'll be using them for. I agree with one of the other negative reviewers that this is a poor replacement for steel wool.

NOt the Same as Steel Wool

I would give these a 5 star for what they do, but the reason for 3 is that I want people to know that Steel wool and Scotch Brite pads are NOT the same and give very different results. Sure you can use them in the same places, but if you are used to using steel wool for various tasks and like the result, you will not necessarily be able to substitute these and get the same result. I use White pads after 0000 steel wool on fretboards and some things, but I could never really get the same results with this stuff that I am after from the steel. Just wrap your steel around a small magnet and VOILA no more particles! Use the white pads for lighter work than the steel wool, they leave less scratches and a higher shine than 0000. Great for buffing bare woods or working oil into wood.

So much better than 0000 steel wool!

These white light duty pads do the job polishing my frets and cleaning my fingerboard that steel wool has done for me for years without the mess. No need to tape up the sound hole on an acoustic or the pickups on an electric.

Blend neck finish.

Used for blending satin finish on neck after reworking V profile and french polish. Just like 0000 steel wool without the mess. Washed and dry and it is ready for the next project. I cut pad into four equal pieces.
