Product Description

Astra Dot Sandpaper Velcro Backed Woodturner's Starter Kit

Sanding Kit includes:

  • 7 sandpaper rolls: 100, 120, 150, 180, 240, 320, 400 grit (1120mm x 150mm) 
    [Other grits available on request.] 
  • 1x 50mm sanding mandrel
  • 1x 75mm sanding mandrel

Note: Sanding Kit does not include drill 

I have been asked many times what I use for sanding to get the finish I do on my turning, so I have put together this selection to get you started.

I have been using Astra Dot papers to sand my woodturned crafts and carved artwork for a number of years. After rigorous tests against other papers on the market I have come to the conclusion that this is an excellent sandpaper which has long life, good bonding, works well with a wide variety of woods, and appears to have quite uniform particle size. 

The main feature of Astra Dot sandpaper is the backing which is incorporated as one piece to form a pre-determined pattern structure. This prevents loading, reduces heat generation, requires lighter sanding pressure, and gives longer sanding life. The Velcro doesn’t de-bond, unlike other papers where the backing will separate from the stuck-on sand paper with friction. This makes it a longer lasting sandpaper.

This product is ideal for the woodturner, wood carver, wood artist, panel beating, lathe worker or boat builder. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information about this product. 

Sanding tip: It is important you don't miss any grits or time is wasted over sanding, heat checks develop and unnecessary wear on the paper occurs.

    Since I first purchased this kit I have been able to achieve much better finish than with standard sand papers. Anybody that uses this product will not be disappointed.
