Torture Test: Sanding Disks

Hook-and-loop sanding disks are disposable items, but we separate the performers from the throwaways

While sanding disks are disposable items, there's no reason you shouldn't invest in the product that gives you the best results for your money. In this torture test, Andy Beasley put eight brands of sanding disks through a variety of tests to determine endurance, stock-removal ability, cutting speed, and cost-effectiveness. After the testing, Beasley rated the Klingspor VD900 as his best overall and best value choice. The other brands tested were Norton, 3M, Gator, Grizzly, Mirka Gold, Mirka Abranet, and Klingspor VD980.
