Questions & Answers


These discs "Include Free Application Pad". What is the purpose of the application pad? The discs...

Asked by Bill June 5, 2021

So they dont stick easily directly to a pad sander. This is a little black felt disk that is made with 2 separate sides one for the sander hooks and one for the pad to stick to. Weird but it works better than trying to just attach directly to your sander.

why are the Diablo sanding discs out of stock in all the stores ?

Asked by skidrow59 September 9, 2020

Maybe a recall as I have a pack that the adhesive between hook and loop and sanding pad failed.

How do they work with a Dewalt palm sander

Asked by Frank June 17, 2020

Hi Frank, These discs will work with any 5" ROS sander.

Strip off old paint, using a orbital sander, what grits are recommended?

Asked by Wando February 12, 2020

Will this sand plaster or plaster of paris?

Asked by Steve November 26, 2019

Yes great.

Sanding Painted Deck

Asked by Vance October 18, 2019

These typically help in preventing gumming up... dont have experience of my own here. I would try to use a rubber abrasive cleaning stick on you current sanding pad... that should extend the use of your current pads. Let us know how it works out for you.

Can these sanding discs be used on aluminum, or is their another disc I should use?

Asked by GKerr May 29, 2019


Is the backing material paper or cloth?

Asked by SJD February 28, 2019


Can you sand joint compound on a skim coated wall with this?

Asked by Mikey July 19, 2018


Can it be used with a floor buffer to sand floors

Asked by Jojo February 24, 2018

To small for a buffer, made for a palm sander.

Coarse grits "MELT" (60
The finer grits work great but for some reason the red ones which are 60 and 80 grit that I've tried melts after normal use of a few minutes

Worked good and held up as advertised. The only downside was it would occasionally bunch up and was useless after that. Luckily I got ten free so just grab another one and roll along.

I am currently doing a whole house DIY renovation which has seen me go through dozens of sheets of sandpaper. I have been using a Makita Palm Sander which I have had for about 7 years, and which to this day is a fantastic sander, using 1/4 sheets. The only sandpaper that I use is Emery Cloth paper which has an extremely tough and durable cloth back. All other sandpapers wear out and load up far too quickly, even the best, such as Diablo. It is frustrating that papers simply don't stand up to the task, mostly by tearing before they even wear out or load up. The big box stores (H.D. etc) don't even carry Emery cloth anymore. I have to go to the hardware store that is one of the suits in a deck of cards, to find it. This type of paper is usually labeled for sanding metal. So you have to search diligently for that variety. Which brings me to this Sandnet disc. Since I am now doing the outside of my house to prep for paint, I have a lot of peeling paint areas on my smooth lap siding, which need to be sanded smooth before I prime and paint. I decided that my palm sander was not the right tool to use for these larger areas because it would take to long, so I purchased a Makita 5" random orbital sander, which I have found to be an excellent choice, after researching every major brand on the market. The Makita stood out, with the large majority of 4 and 5 Star reviews. And when choosing the discs that I needed, I stumbled upon this Diable variation, called Sandnet. After watching a YouTube demo created by Diable, I took the plunge. I just finished the south side of my home's siding, first scraping loose paint and then hitting it with the new Makita, using the Diable Sandnet paper discs. WOW, WOW, WOW. Cut through like smoothing with a butter knife, down to a fingertip touch smooth. Then laid down a layer of primer and can hardly tell where the previous peeling paint buildup was. And the beauty is that this paper just went and went and went, without loading up and had plenty of bite to sand down a lot of square footage. I would have easily gone through at least a half dozen Diable 80 grit normal discs. But with the 80 grit Sandnet, I didn't have to stop and swap one time. I am thoroughly impressed with this product and will NEVER use regular sandpaper with the new Makita ROS. And here is what was even more surprising. Since the Sandnet is an open mesh, the Makita sucked every bit of siding dust (fiber board) into the dust bag on the Makita, like I had a super suction vacuum hooked up to the sander. I have never been able to fill my palm sander dust bag to the fully packed state that this paper was able to allow the new orbital sander to collect. I was not paying much attention to the bag at first, and at one point I felt the bag to see how it was doing and it was so packed that I felt like I was compressing a chunk of hard foam. That thing was absolutely packed beyond being full. I ended up emptying that bag 3 times during the 20 foot run of sanding from the ground up to about 5 feet high. And the sanded areas comprised only about the lower 10-15% of each layer or run of siding board. So the Sandnet knocked it down without hesitation and sent all of the sanding debris through its open screen design, and right through the holes in the base pad and into the dust bag. Diable, PLEASE, PLEASE create and introduce this fantastic paper in a format which we can use on 1/4 sheet and 1/2 sheet sanders. Besides its phenomenal durability in not tearing and lasting way beyond your normal excellent paper, it is the better mouse trap for allowing for superior dust collection.

Purchased the Diablo adhesive pads, garbage, would not stay on sander for more than 2 minutes, then useless. Bought this to convert the Bosch sander to hook and loop. Off and running right away, no problems, simple attach and go, great system to adopt away from those inferior adhesive pads. Thoroughly recommend this item. Only problem now is the rate these pads cut through the job and the dust generated. Need to get a vacuum filter system now to catch the sudden increase in air pollution, but I am not going to complain about that the job is getting done quick time now. Shug

Disaster, I have no idea what anyone who rated this thing more than one star used it for. In my case, weathered, good condition redwood 2x6 deck railing that had been previously cleaned with wood cleaner. I just wanted to smooth out the surface. One 80 grit pad was fully consumed by my Bosch 5" orbital sander in about 10 linear feet. These things are terrible. See attached two picture. Shows what's left of the first pad, the second one still on the sander. Both completely destroyed.

I always buy bulk packs of sanding discs at Home Depot
These sanding discs are perfect for refinishing large areas of wood and I do a lot of that. It's great to be able to buy a bulk package at a savings, as it can get costly on a big project. The project goes much smoother (that pun was intended) when I can change the sanding disc frequently. I finished this entire staircase using my Black and Decker Orbital Sander(from Home Depot of course). I used mostly 80 grit, 120 grit and even a few 50 grit! I used Minwax stain, Spar Urethane Satin Varnish and Glidden Eggshell finish paint (the little sample jars are perfect to add a pop of color to the risers) to complete the project. It was a mess - I wish they had a place for a 'BEFORE' photo. Looks good now though!!
