Andreas,

Thanks for asking about that. (I was too embarrassed.)

While it looks like they carry larger sizes, this site seems to have the best prices available: Mirka Abranet Abrasives | MirkaTools-Online.com. The hand sanding blocks are here: Mirka Abranet® Vacuum Blocks - Mirka Accessories - Mirka Tools & Abrasives | MirkaTools-Online.com.

It looks like they are part of Beaver Tools: Festool Dealer, Buy Festools | BeaverTools.com Discount Power Tools. They sell Festool, Fein, Kreg, and some other good quality tools.

Regards,

Dan.

Boys,

I believe that would be Douglas Fir (DF), also known on the West coast as VGF (vertical grain fir).

Eiji,

TH&H has the Abranet stuff, I think, and some Mirka, too.

Thanks for the links Dan.

Looks like Beaver Tools has been doing a major overhaul of their website. I can't remember where they're located and the About page isn't up yet. I did find a Customer Service phone number;

"314-773-8490 This number is a landline based in St Louis, MO and is unpublished."


$19 US seems like a very fair (low) price for the 2-3/4" x 5" sanding block. An assortment pack of abrasives is available for another $20. "Assorted Grits, Qty. 30 (5 each of 80, 120, 180, 240, 320, 400 grits)"

I think so too, it's a very good price! But still, there is nobody in Canada selling them...
Why is it sooo difficult to convince retailers to carry quality products?
