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 £6.99 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.
