Did I "miss the memo" on 6 inch abrasives?
« on: August 14, 2018, 01:44 PM »
Went online this a.m. to replenish some abrasives for my ETS 150/3 and they seem to be vanishing from all the vendors boards.  Has Festool discontinued the six inch format? [eek]

Any other place sell something compatible?

Thanks

Festool "upgraded" the 150mm pads to a new version recently, Mulit-Jetstream 2.  At the same time, I think they changed up their abrasive offerings.  Some of the old abrasives are still around, sometimes at a good discount.  Or the new versions (with a different but compatible hole pattern) should also be available.

@Jesse Cloud, like Goz said, the Multi-Jetstream has been discontinued and replaced with the more holier Multi-Jetstream2.

You can find all your options right here for the 6" sanders:

@ Shane Holland.  Does that page include the older stuff that Jesse wants?

Seems like this page

https://www.festoolproducts.com/on-sale.html

has more of the older style.

There is some great pricing at the bottom of this page for the "older" 6" sandpaper. Keep an eye on how many holes there are.
