Which combination of pads and papers do you prefer to use for boatwork? Recommendations? Warnings?
Having used the Fein for more than a decade through changes in paper styles and pad designs, I find myself still frustrated. I started out with psa paper and found it effective but messy. I tried early h&l pads and the hook part kept separating from the pad. Then they perfected the hook part with a really slick system, which they seem now to have discontinued. That system worked well with the fein papers and some others. Now, the hook pads are more aggressive and seem to pull the fuzz off the sandpaper long before the paper is used up. Fein papers seem to fare much better than the klingspor variants which I used to get occasionally when ordering other things from them.
So should I go back to psa with it's stay-stuck but otherwise messy qualities?
Humph. Any suggestions appreciated.
