Granat or ???
« on: January 06, 2021, 12:24 PM »
I mentioned in another post that I would have to start replenishing my supply of 5" sanding disks for a Pro 5.  I'm working through the last of my Klingspor gold (purchased in pre-Festool days) and Mirka Abranet disks.  The application is 99% woodworking.

Granat is the obvious Festool choice for woodworking.

Mirka Abranet Ace, Abranet, and Klingnet are all on my list.  For non-Festool sanding disks, I like the meshes because of the dust collection on Festool sanders.

I'm open to persuasion - what do people think is the best choice for general woodworking?  Is there a case for buying one brand for some uses or grits, and another for other uses?

Have you considered Granat net?

And I thought I was up-to-date on the choices...

It looks like cool stuff.  What is the abrasive?  Any idea how it compares to the other mesh choices?

Harvey, here's a link to a review of 12 discs from the Taylor Toolworks site:

I've been using the 3M Cubitron II for woodworking over the past year and like it very much.

It’s been whispered that the Granat Net is rebranded Mirka…

I've tried Abranet, Abranet Ace, Klingspor mesh, Granat, Rubin, and here's what I've settle on:

Granat for up to P220 for majority of projects - used on wood, and anything requiring heavy-duty removal
Abranet Ace for higher grits and for use on materials prone to clog

I'm phasing out the others. The least useful to me was Klingspor mesh.

Believe that’s an urban legend.   TTS  bought an abrasives company years ago, why would they subcontract something they could make themselves ?
