A: This item contains 15 sanding discs and does not come with anything else.
A: Various grades & sandpaper for different models
A: Only the sanding pads.
A: It only contained 15 sanding discs, nothing additional.
A: it was only sandpaper
A: If you can check the backing on another orbital sander to see if you can get the same style for the porter cable
A: The product uses hook loop system not the sticky back like some DAs. Unless you can stick a hook system to your sander I say not.
A: Depends, if it feels almost like a velcro where the pad goes it takes a hook and loop pad. If it is smooth it takes an adhesive pad. You have to know what type your sander is and look at the packaging on the sanding discs.
A: No these have the felt grip so no they won't work on a sander that takes glued discs. #lightningco
A: The Hook and Loop disc will not work on the Model# 334 Porter Cable sander. You will need to purchase a 5” PSA sanding disc. If you would like to use a Hook and Loop sanding disc, you can purchase a replacement Hook and Loop backup pad and install it on your sander. The replacement pad for the Porter Cable sanders is Model# 13904, this will fit on your sander and allow it to use Hook and Loop disc.
A: At this time we do not offer wet/dry sandpaper that can be used wet on solid surfaces.
A: I have never seen any wet paper advertised for 5" sanders. The wet paper that I have used was for mirror finishes on wood or fiberglass or metal. JJK
A: only in automotive product lines from 600 up to 3500
A: You can check in the auto body repair section of home depot for wet sand paper
A: The higher the grit, the finer the sanding. So I guess it depends on what you are trying to sand off the floor. If you are refinishing, you should strip the current wood down in stages, finishing with a 180 or 220.
A: Depends on how much you need to sand the floor. The 220 grit should leave you a nice smooth surface but if you need to get rid of deep scratches or gouges in the wood you'd probably want to start with something coarser, maybe 80 or 100 grit, and work through the grits to eliminate sanding marks.
A: Hey matt, I think what you mean in your question is how the grain would look, as the grain is already there. Since this is an extremely fine grit sandpaper (the finest we carry in our store). With that said, this would still slightly scratch the floor...any sander/sandpaper will, its just that this one will do the minimum amount. If you really need to give an illusion of it not scratching (not sure what/why you need to though), go with a higher grit sandpaper, such as 300-400 grit. Joseph
A: It depends on the wood and what your trying to accomplish the lower the number the more it will scratch . When I do flooring repairs I start at 100 and work my way until the damage is gone then use 220 or finer . If it's a hardwood with tight grain 220 should be fine to still get a good finish back in the wood. the higher you go the better for a smoother finish.
A: Sanding always scratches, that what it is, but 220 grit is general good for a fine enough 'scratching' that the surface feels nice & smooth. However, if you're sanding, its probably because you want to remove something, so you may want to start with a coarser grit first before moving to this as a finishing grit.
A: Sanding involves scratching, there's no way around it. Are you working with unfinished flooring, or something that's already been finished? If the flooring has a finish on it, one of the only things that may work is a microabrasive. You could even try something like a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Otherwise, it really depends on your application. If you're looking to sand something in preparation for stain and poly, 220 is the highest grit you'll need. If you need to remove a lot of material, then you should start with 80-100 grit, and move up to 150, then finally 220. Lastly, if you've got a large area to do like a floor, you won't want to use a 5" disc sander. You'll want to rent a floor sander, or at least use a belt sander.
A: The lower the number the more agressive the sanding will be; ideal for fast, rough removal of thick coatings/paints/varnish/wood age. Agressive sandpaper will leave scratch marks. Generally, you would start with the paper best suited for removal of your particular finish & graduade to higher numbers best suited for removal of scratches & prep for your new finish (generally around 220-400grit). Though you can start with something like a 220, you will use more paper and it will generally take longer to strip.
A: For refinishing hardwood floors like oak, typically a sequence of 24-36-60-80 is recommended. Finer woods like maple will need a 100 grit pass. If you're only sanding out defects in the urethane, then try 220 grit.
A: I would recommend 220 grit. That's what most woodworkers use to sand down a finish without sanding the wood.
A: 220 grit seems to be the way to go for a great finish...Depending in the condition of the floor, you might have to start with a 150 grit and then finish with the 220 grit...
A: Yes, you can find it under model # DCD050080H50G.
A: Depends on how you buy it. I saw small packs and this is what I got. Also saw 20 packs. Go see what is available.
A: Yes, that's how I buy them.
A: Mine came as a 10 pack.
A: Depends on the sander you have. If you need the universal type with a lot of holes I think a 20 pack is the most you can get and only in 60 grit. But search Homedepot.com and/or ask a home depot associate to check on it for you.
