Systainer³ for the “Festool 4-step sanding” system
« on: April 08, 2021, 11:02 AM »
Festool promotes this product/method for their Automotive Systems Group.

Don't ask me why they call it 4-steps when they're actually using 5 different grits of paper.  [blink]  It is interesting though. The instructions are printed on the cardboard cover Systainer insert.

I do not understand the need to start at 80 grit on a car, those scratches are totally not wanted. Starting at 120 is coarse enough.

So - how's that distinctly different from the approach I used with my approach for my 125mm sanding supplies?  Maybe Festool is finally catching up???   [big grin]

Clearly, the Systainer has a hidden step..

I do not understand the need to start at 80 grit on a car, those scratches are totally not wanted. Starting at 120 is coarse enough.

If no rasp, file or 80 grit, what would the painter and the guy from the body shop have to argue about then..  [big grin]
