    They sound similar, but sure mine are by Sandvik. I never thought to clean them with paint stripper. Thanks for that, I'll give it a try.
    The new laser etched one's from Japan are highly flexible though, perfect for sanding a round bilged hull. At ยฃ6.99 including P&P I'm going to order a course and medium to make up the set. My main interest is static sailing ships and my new NT Sander has already made itself indispensable, levelling veneer planks. Their durability remains to be seen.

    Hi nonsuch are the sanding plates your describing the same as the Perma Grit tungsten carbide sanding tools. I have had my block sanders now for over 20 years and they are as good now as they day l bought them. quick coat of nitromores then a rub with brass wire brush good as new these are probably some of the best tools l own.

    I'm guessing that most of us remember Sandvik sintered metal sanding plates? I've had one for nearly forty years and it still works fine, but have always kept an eye open for another one. Last week I found a mini version on eBay, the NT Sander from Japan. It's made from 0.2mm stainless steel and about the size of a credit card. It looks as though the "pimples" are laser etched. It's flexible but comes with a sheet of double sided tape so it can be attached to a block.
    I bought the fine grade which is perfect for removing grain, raised after varnishing small parts.
    I doubt it will last forty years like the Sandvik, but it's a lovely piece of kit.
