It’s official. I am now a fan of Abranet abrasives!

I only wish I’d invested in their discs sooner… As in, before I started sanding those cutting boards!

Today’s video came up in my YouTube subscription feed, recently:

There’s also the full review of this system, over at New Woodworker.com.

This looks like an excellent solution for owners of the Work Sharp system. These Magna-Discs do appear to be available from Rutlands, for those of us in the UK. It’s just a shame that the initial outlay is so steep… But, if they last as long as the claims (fifty-times a standard abrasive disc?!) then, it’s got to be worth the investment for any tradesman or professional who uses their tool sharpener on a daily basis.

It’s the use of magnetic technology that really appeals to me. Could this be the future for abrasive discs? If only they can find a way to reduce the costs… I know that not everyone gets along well with the velcro hook-and-loop attachments. I’ve come across posts where woodworkers say that the backing pads on their sanders have lost their grip, for example (it’s not uncommon).

Thanks for looking.
