3M Flexible Polishing Papers

About This Item

'Finishing fabric' conforms to any surface. Strong micro-grit papers so flexible you can use them like cloth, wet or dry!

Because they conform to any surface shape, they're great for polishing contoured guitar finishes, frets, plastic pickguards, pearl inlays and more. The first samples we received were jealously hoarded in our shops, quickly becoming favorites for polishing nuts and saddles, and for touchups in lacquer finishes.

"Indispensable for polishing bone and pearl nuts. They leave a gorgeous luster with no dark residue in porous bone."
—Don MacRostie, Red Diamond Mandolins

Each sheet is coated on one side with micron-graded particles of aluminum oxide (1200-8000 grit) or silicon carbide (400-600 grit), on an extremely flexible non-woven .007" synthetic backing.

The pattern coating won't clog quickly. They leave no dark residue in porous bone nuts and saddles. The durable tear-resistant sheet washes easily in water.

Each sheet is a generous 8.5" x 11" (215.9mm x 279.4mm).

"The most versatile abrasive in my shop."
—Erick Coleman

"Lasts a long time, and so flexible you can buff shoeshine-style!"
—Dan Erlewine

Knife repair

I used these polishing papers to smooth out heat damage to the handle of a fine Japanese knife, and I got it even smoother than new, including rivets. Now I'll have to polish the rest of the set!

3M Flexible Polishing Papers / sanding

By

Verified Buyer


I'm still learning the ropes on guitar finishing so gave these a try. I have several different grits 600 & might be 4000 (way too fine for what I'm working on).

The 600 is OK again not as effective as wet/dry sand paper, but for me the 400 grit is really, really good. It can sand and smooth where 320 or 400 grit sandpaper leaves more scratches. Will have to pick up some more & try some other grits.

New level of sharpness

By

Verified Buyer


Using these sandpapers and some cheap float glass I'm able to achieve a level of sharpness on my chisels and plane blades I could never achieve before. It also takes far less time and mess - no water or oil.

Works great.

These really put a shine on whatever they are used on. They get out imperfections on a guitar neck and are great at polishing frets

Excellent flexibility

I have found that these polishing "papers" are really handy for a variety of fine polishing tasks. They are surprisingly durable too.

Polishing papers

By

I bought these thinking they might be good for edge shaping and polishing on my knives. Well, they do work after a fashion but get used up fast. They are not for metal so much as they are for wood sanding and smoothing.

The Right Stuff

By

Verified Buyer


When I needed sandpaper I thought the prices at StewMac were a little high. I checked online at my local stores and I was shocked. With StewMac you get the correct products for less.

Great on frets

By

Verified Buyer


I used this set to polish frets going from the roughest to the finest. I worked extremely well. A sheet will go a long way. It just takes patience and a large can of elbow grease (not for sale on Stewmac)
