Topic tags/keywords: question sander

For years(since it came out) I have a HF oscillating tool.
I paid $19.99 for it.
It still works like a champ and I love it but I cannot find pads for it.

I do not want HF sanding pads as they are junk.
On Amazon I can find only assortments of pads with grits that I do not use.
In the past Klingspor made a special order of pads for me.
I am running out of them.
If should call klingspor again but I would like to know where you buy your pads.
Thanks

I don’t have one. I assume you are talking about the triangular ones? Are they a different size than the ones they sell for the Bosch and other similar tools. If not the same, I would probably just buy the H&L paper you like and cut them to fit.

Not real sure what tool you are talking about. Is it these sleeves?

The only tool HF has that also has the word Oscillating that I am aware of is this one. But your use of the word pads, threw me off. Sleeves or tubes would be my choice.

I bought 3 of these the first week HF offered them, at least in Ohio. The price was 69 bux, but back then you could stack coupons. IIRC I paid 33 bux apiece for them.

Anyhow back to sanding medium. Everything I buy comes from Supergrit. I feel they offer a better product most of the time over Klingspor, and almost always smoke their prices on name brand items. They don’t have super fast shipping, so I plan my orders.

Klingspor’s Woodworking Shop offers sandpaper in different grits and cut to match a variety of specific different multitools (Black & Decker, Bosch, Fein, Festool, Octo, Proxxon, etc.) as well as generic “triangle”. Perhaps you can find some that will fit the HF tool. https://www.woodworkingshop.com/specialty-abrasives/ Probably worth calling them with the dimensions of your tool’s sanding pad to avoid lots of trial & error.

Ooops – just reread the OP and realize you started there. They still might have something that works off the shelf.

I bought a sheet of hook and loop sand paper and can cut it to fit my version of your tool, or any other than uses hook and loop. It’s a couple feet wide by about six feet long.

I tried to go back through my orders to see where I got it, but…..

Gotcha.

They sell pads for the Fein, which I imagine they ripped off when they started making them

I’d suggest calling, they could quickly tell you more about these, and or if it would be more cost effective to roll your own from H&L backed paper. I guarantee you would see much better results moving up to Abralon, or similar, just that it won’t last as long as H&L with an Aluminum Oxide grit. It sux as the Silicon carbide is a sharper and harder grain compared to aluminum oxide, but it’s also brittle, and will break down faster. But anything will be better than that tripe HF sells

Try checking your local Lowes. They should work with this model.
