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.

A real game changer

Follow the sequence and become amazed at the results. I went over some previous guitars I built but wasn't happy with the end finish. Going through all the different pads and then using the polishing compounds made my guitars feel like glass. LOVE IT.

I used these and some other Stew Mac tools to clean up some frets on my EVH Wolfgang Special. Turned out great and I love my Stew Mac tools!

Great

Couldn't be better really, except: I wish they included directions and a note about grit equivalency. Apparently the 1200 Micro-Mesh is equivalent to about 400 grit normal sandpaper. Having used it a bit, this seems true. Also, there's proper instructions that you can google that I wish were included with the product. I didn't get my best results because there are some tips/tricks that are in the instructions. Still, great.

I've used these for years, wore out another set so got replacements, and a set for my good neighbor
who works on his own guitars also.

Blemish eliminator!

So many shop uses for the Micro-Mesh, did I mention polishing frets to a mirror shine and blending in a lacquer touch-up or polish up a scratched up pick guard. So many....

Don't use on finish,

These load really fast, I would not advise them for finish work. Next I used them on frets.. better fit and use. Not thrilled with these.

They work

By

They work well for what you have to do. Seems like they won't last very long, but I won't know until I continue to use them. My only gripe is identifying the pads. Some of the colors don't match up and when you get to the finer paper, some colors are too similar. This should be a quick remedy, perhaps numbers printed on the pads instead of colors.
