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.

Polishing frets will make a world of difference. These Touch Pads come in a very wide variety of course to thin and work very well. They are vey durable and I'm sure I will get much use out of them.

These are real handy

Very handy, but what is the best way to clean them?

Response from StewMac


Hi Rick,

You can extend the life of the Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Pads a bit by cleaning them with a stiff brissel brush. We've actually found that a clean toothbrush works very well. However, these pads will eventually wear out no matter how clean you keep them.

Born Again Frets

I love this product for polishing frets. It takes time to tape off the frets and progress through the pads from coarsest to finest, but when you're done those dingy and dull frets will shine like new. They will feel better and play better.

Great

I love these for finish touch ups. A mirror shine on any type of finish. Great for removing minor scuffs and scratches too. Excellent for final fret polishing.

Great for polishing bone nuts

By

Verified Buyer


Just received today and used to polish newly cut bone nut. Only used the four finest so I can't speak of the others, though I'm sure they'll work fine. Only four stars because the colors on the included chart doesn't quite match up with the actual colors of the pads.
Price not too painful and would probably buy again.
