Gents and Ladies, I have been using these sanding blocks after a friend who looks like Moses put me on to them. I was surprised that I had never crossed paths with them before. I am not spruiking any brands as they have no Manufacturers labels on them.After LBD educated me yet again off I went and I found the supplier by Googling 150mm disc sanding blocks on ebay.
