Ok, so I was tired. After a long day in the office I just wanted to relax in the workshop sanding some drawers.

It depends on how long you use it.  Been there and done that.


Ah, you mean the buffing pad that comes mounted on the machine? ;)

Count your teeth - that's the nominal grit.
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.

It is probably similar to the grit rating of the RO 150 hard pad :-(
