Mirca Autonet are cheaper than Abranet and just as good. You can’t beat the mesh for dust control. Holes just aren’t as good.

Thanks for the replies! I had thought of Klingspor as I have an existing account with them. I’ve always been happy with their products and they last a long time! So long, in fact, that they informed me that I hadn’t placed an order since late 2014! Well, a box of 100 discs lasts a long time! They were happy to take my order for 4 boxes of 100 at less than $30 each as opposed to Festools $68 for the same quantity!

Dusty, I have a Festool sander and, like you, I wanted to save some money on the disks. I ordered some from Klingspor and they started flying off the sander before I finished the first box. I called Festool CS about the issue and they asked if I was using a different brand of disks because other companies’ hook and loop systems weren’t compatible with the Festool hook and loop system. I replaced the pad and started using only Festool disks and the issue went away. This was 6-8 years ago and things have may have changed, but you should be aware of it. YMMV
