I thought I’d try this Abranet Sanding Mesh to sand my pen blanks. Sanding has always been the hated chore of my penmaking. The Abranet Sanding Mesh has made this task much easier. I cut a 1” strip off each of 5 grits and after 15 pens I’m still using the same pieces and they don’t show any signs of wearing out yet. This stuff is much, much easier to use that the old sandpaper strips I had before. I won’t be using the old stuff any more. Wish I’d bought this when I started on pens. I can see using this sanding mesh on other projects too. Great stuff.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about that Abranet Darell.
I think I’m going to have to try it.
(As soon as the pile of sandpaper I got free with rebate wears out….cheap skate that I am…)
Thanks for the tip!

I used this stuff in the D.A. sander style. 5” discs. I did a Avonitw counter top with that. And we used Abralon, Same stuff except mounted on a foam pad, and goes as high as 8000 grit. We got that thing high gloss in no time. I like the stuff. I found on harder materials like avonite it wears at just about the same rate as regular paper. On wood though the Abronet is outstanding. They try to sell you a sander with a package deal, but regular sanders work just as well.
