Festool Sanding Disc/Paper


Recommended Posts

When I bought my ETS 150/5, I bought boxes of 150, 180 & 220. The boxes show P150 Rubin 2, P180 Granet and P220 Rubin 2 and each have a hole pattern to match the sander pad. To order more discs, I went to Festool’s site and don’t find these with the hole pattern but do on Amazon. Also on Festool, I see they have a Granat Net. What disc have you guys found favorable and from where did you get them?

And if there are more holes than my pad has,  I consider that not so good as it means less paper surface. 

I guess I never thought about that but it makes sense. The Klingspor discs have more holes then I need but work great although I have never done a side by side comparison to discs with the proper number of holes

I stand corrected there are a lot of holes but they are all used, sorry for the miss information

The extra holes are new but shouldn't matter.  I have been using the Festool Granet, it is more money but it does seem to hold up better.  I have been getting mine at a local Benjamin Moore Paint Store if you have one by you Coop.

I'm told the more holes don't matter. I believe extracting the dust from under the paper offsets having less material, though I'm not really sure that having more holes will significantly impact lifespan. It should in theory increase performance so sanding goes quicker as dust is removed faster and more efficiently.

If your pad doesn't have the extra holes don't worry about it. I'm using the new hole pattern on an old pad and it doesn't make a difference.

Can you provide me with a link? I’m not finding this disc on their site. Thanks
