Sandvik product?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can find this stuff.

I don't think they make it anymore.(something about the environment, whaa whaa whaa :) )

It's my favorite abrasive, and my stash is running low/wearing out.

Anyone have some to sell? Any hints?

Anyone?

I've got cash.

I have heard that product called "sand-plate", and the rumor while I was in making school was that it worked too well - so Sandvik discontinuedf its production. Rumor, mind you.

SO! I thinks I've found some.

It was hiding in the Dick catalogue, under precision hand grinder or some such thing.

Observe:

I've ordered some large rectangular replacement plates, so we will see if these work as well.

(In fact, I've ordered ALL the replacement plates, so you all are out of luck :) )

The Sandvik plates were great - I bought 2 lozenge-shaped ones several years ago. One I installed on a bent rosewood handle - super. A couple of months aho, I was very pleased to find the other one, and a bonus large orbital sander plate, to boot.

All others are a compromise.

I guess in using such a product you can all flatly deny using sandpaper. :)

They have the great property of being something between a file and a coarse riffler - fast wood removal without deep scratches.

Is it like a metal plate  ? 

I have a double sided abrasive file with a yellow handle, got it 15 years ago and it's still good.

Hope I can find another.

Yeah. It was a flexible metal plate with adhesive on the back. I've used the same piece for nearly 15 years, and it's just now starting to go dull. The little one I used for ebony didn't last as long, but it's still useable. As Janito said, All others are a compromise.

 

Duane, have you used the Japanese stuff? Does it come in sheets?

How old is this site?

They must be/have been sourcing from somewhere, but where?

It's somewhat new I believe...a N. American distributors of NT Dresser/Cutter from what I gather; made in Japan: http://www.ntcutter.co.jp/ps-11.htm

sandplate.com is run by an individual named Michael Kocher and his wife, who have a violin shop in St. Louis named Gateway Strings...I do not know them.
