All the advantages of steel wool - but better!
Woodworkers across the country are finding the super benefits of this product. Steel wool will, over time, shred and rust no matter how good it is. Steel wool can leave deep scratch marks due to its shape. These nonwoven nylon 6" x 9" hand pads will accomplish the same thing without pattern scratches. These pads are made of a non-woven web of nylon impregnated with abrasive grain. For woodworking: These are perfect beginning French polishing or for scuffing sealers especially when using waterborne products where steel wool can leave unsightly rust spots. For metalworking: Great for medium to fine satin finish and slight burr removal.
