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.

Good paper.

I'm on my second set of the small pads. Very good selection of grits. Good for cleaning up frets and fret ends and other jobs. I used them more than I thought. The back will separate if you bend them too much so they're not indestructible, but they're worth the price.

Great product

These are just what you need for polishing up rough frets. I bought a new Squier Bullet Tele from a guy who bought it to mod out and decided to go another route. Initially, the frets felt very gritty when bending the strings. I polished them up with these bad boys and it smoothed them right out. It plays as smooth as my American Strat now. I will be using these on all my guitars from now on.

Great, But Have Their Limitations...

By

Verified Buyer


I used the small set of pads (rounded corners (1500-12,000 grit) which worked really well for my two superficiall finish crack repairs.

I ran into a bit of a problem for the repair at the neck pocket... right where the neck makes a sharp "L" angle, I had trouble getting the sanding pad in tight to the corner... sandpaper probably would have worked better for that small, tight corner.

Overall, very happy with the pads and the performed well... be sure to go through EVERY step for at least a few strokes, or scratches will still be visible. Clean the pad often and consider using the pad wet for the last 2 steps (8000, 12,000), per the manufacturer's web site.

these are good quality but the padding is very stiff, it is not anything like a sponge.

Works Great

By

Verified Buyer


I used these with excellent results. When you use these do NOT get lazy use every pad .Every pad makes a noticable difference even the last 12000 grit pad. If you own or are planning to do many instruments I recomend the 4inch pads these do wear out but I think I will be able to get 3 possibly more uses from the 2 inch pads. They work great just rememer to use even pressure on the sides of the fret or you will see very minor marks that will not effect the fret perfomance. This was my first time polishing frets so any microscopic marks left over were my work but these pads are amazing , next time i know ill do it better

A Great End To A Neck Nick Repair

By

Verified Buyer


I used these to finish up a nick repair on my guitar neck. They were fantastic. By the time I got to the 12,000 grit, the wood was already looking polished. I just used some guitar polish as in Dan's video and the completed project was better than expected.

Great

These did great and I was able to use them for a couple neck before they in my opinion seem to be worn out. They did what needed to be done as advertised.

Universally Awesome!

This would be the second purchase of these pads. These pads are durable and can be used for a variety of jobs. Whether it is fret polishing, spot repair of a finish, they will do an outstanding job. I have used these to polish frets and when spot repair the finish. They are durable and last for a long time.

Prior to buying these I was a little disappointed in the look of the Tru Oil finish I put on my tele build, but after running through all nine of these it shines beautifully!
