In spite of having some truly awful experiences with Silverline products, in particular their execrable sanding discs for Random Orbit devices (see my apoplectic review on all the appropriate pages) I live in hope and continue to buy the occasional product trusting that this time, surely, it might - MUST?? - work.
This time it does. Their on-the-roll sanding paper, while not being the absolute best, is good enough for real-world use and also represents outstanding value for money. It needs a bit of care not to rip it, (see below) particularly when wrapping it round a badly-designed palm sander but otherwise it's a good GP product that I will continue to buy.
A tip for anyone not knowing it:
When you've taken a piece of the roll, hold an end in each hand, grit side UP, and drag it across the edge of your bench a few times to "break its back"
This way, when its wrapped around a sanding block or a palm sander, it is far less likely to crack and tear than if you don't do it.
Hanging a roll in a badly-lit bathroom is NOT funny.
