Rated 5 out of 5Â by MGLX Excelent sand paper, and cheap
Having previously used vast amounts of sub standard sandpaper during years of DIY, including renovating two houses, I purchased this sandpaper recently looking for something a bit better and longer lasting. I was amazed at the price and decided to give it a go.
Having started with sanding some solid oak as part of a new spice rack I was instantly amazed that the small piece I started with was still going strong after 10 minutes of use, when I would have normally gone through numerous A4 sized sheets! The roll now takes pride of place on a new holder in the workshop with the 120 grit paper, and soon to have with it a number of other grits when I next pop into Screwfix.
Amazing value for money
quickly and effectively removed gloss paint and varnish
sanded and rounded edges easily on old (aka hard) oak
only downside is that it doesn't tear very easily, good for in use, not so easy to rip a piece off, but easily sorted with an old hacksaw blade!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by SteveMurray I understand the price now
I guess this product would be great value for light duty hand sanding. For use in a half or quater sheet sander though it isn't a lot of use.
It's very lightweight for a 60 grit paper and it won't stay in my quarter sheet sander at all. In the half sheet sander it starts OK but performance drops off very quickly and it easily tears.
I'd definately recommend a heavier duty product. I'll report back on the other products as I work through them!
