   Handy dandy papers when you just don't want or can't use, that electrical sander. The Granat foam backed, hand sanding sheet are now available in packs of 10.

Nice to see they decided to make 10 packs available, I've been wanting to try these, but the big rolls were just too expensive for my taste.

Bob, When Festoy first came out with Granat, I received a couple of small sample squares of the foam backed.  I am down to my very last piece.  They have been great for final touchups to almost every project.  Also have worked well for getting into corners and along molded edges. The ones I have had are 180 grit.  Do they come in higher grits?

These are really awesome - I use them all the time, especially the higher grits when finishing.  Also really great for sanding on the lathe if you're into turning. 

Tom B. sells assortments that are handy, though now these 10 packs are another great option.

 Thanks Brice. Wayne, sorry for not responding sooner, but for whatever reason, I did not get an automatic email notification for the post responses as I did before.
 On another note, the goal is to offer ALL the Festool papers in 10 packs, currently we have the 10 packs for the 5", 6" and  RO 90 (round and Delta papers).

May the jealousy commence: I can get these by the onesie at not one, not two, not three, but four relatively close brick and mortar stores.  Well, sometimes it's out of a Mirka box.  Whatever's on hand.

Anyway, if you haven't used foam-backed sandpaper: I highly recommend it.

When I took my last end user class, Steve gave us some in a variety of grits.

I like them so much especially for final sanding before and in between finish coats that I bought a bunch of 400 and I think 220 from Tom.

One cool tip that Steve told me when he handed them out was that the soft foam on the back can be used like a tack cloth wiping the fine sanding dust off the piece.

I've tried it and have been very happy with the results.
These are some pretty items highly recommend them

Bummer, seems to be a Bob Marino special, and not a general Festool offering.  [sad]

I've used mine that way.  Works great.
