"We use a lapping machine for the initial flattening of freshly heat treated blades or “irons” for hand planes. These are O-1 tool steel hardened and tempered to RC 62 and have some distortion from heat treating. We’ve searched for a couple years for an alternative abrasive disc for use with our lapping machine. While the proprietary discs available for the machine are good discs, they’re outrageously expensive.

We’ve tried discs from a number of sources and the Blue Film Backed Abrasive PSA Discs from Abrasive Resource are the best we’ve found. The film backing doesn’t distort or roll ahead of the steel being flattened, the abrasive film stays flat. The aluminum oxide abrasive is long lasting, very nearly as long as the ceramic abrasive of the proprietary discs from the lapping machine manufacturer.

The adhesive on the discs from Abrasive Resource is superior to the adhesive on the proprietary discs. It’s tenacious enough to hold the discs in place but also allows easy and quick replacement of discs. The proprietary discs required the discs be heated for removal and residual adhesive had to be removed with a solvent.

We find the Blue Film Backed Abrasive discs from abrasive resource to be of very good quality, economical for us to use, and labor saving as well."

“The blue film sanding discs are really, really outstanding in finishing grits (P800-P2000). It's stearate system is simply fantastic which makes this product highly resistant to loading. I have used 3M 260L forever, and this blue film is superior to it.”

“We have been buying our grinding supplies from Abrasive Resource for over 10 years. When I took over purchasing in 1997, Debbie from your company taught me the in’s and out’s of the many different grinding products that are related to our company. I have added Timesaver belts and Dynafile belts to the list of products we currently buy because of the cost savings Abrasive Resource was able to provide. I just wanted to let you know what an asset Debbie has been to our company with her knowledge of the abrasive industry. Thank-you!”

"When our original grinding belts were discontinued, you went out of your way finding me comparable samples. The pricing pretty much stayed the same or even cheaper than the originals. You understood the quality of belt I needed and wasn't pushy like most salesmen tend to be. Thank-you."

“I like the sandpaper I have been ordering from you better than any other sandpaper I have ever used. I make the most expensive rocking chairs in the country, perhaps in the world. I recently sold two for $27,000 apiece. In my shop I currently have 11 different sanders including 4 Festool, 5 Porter Cable, a Delta and a Makita. I have tried perhaps 10 different major company abrasives and none are as good as the Blue Line…”
