Any US sources for Mirka 6" 57 hole Pad Saver?
« on: December 05, 2017, 01:16 AM »
Looking to start using mirka abranat paper for my ETS 150/3. Saw a youtube from the UK stating that the 57 hole pad was the one to use versus the 67 hole that doesn't line up. Only problem is I can't find a US retailer that carries it and it's not listed on mirka-online.com. From my search on here people seem to be using 9956 but it looks to be the 67 hole version. So i'm a little confused. Any help would be much appreciated.

Perhaps try https://www.smsdistributors.com - I get most of my Mirka abrasives/supplies from them, and I think they are in MA / I’m in CT so it’s usually next day delivery.  (No financial relationship - just a happy customer).

I get my Mirka supplies from Highland Woodworking- they're a Festool dealer as well so I think they'd be able to offer good advice- I'd call them

Thanks guys. I’ll keep you guys posted. My guess though is that Mirka doesn’t offer it in the US.

Peachtree Woodworking also carries Mirka and would be worth calling.

@mungk I don't think that Mirka US imports that item to the US. Here is a link to Mirka's golbal site with the part and part number

https://www.mirka.com/product/#/8295611111

This vendor in the UK appears to have it in stock and might ship to the US.

The video in the first post was made by that same vendor. I reached out to them to see if they ship to the States. Will keep you guys posted.

Lee Valley has some that look close.

That does look close. On closer inspection looks like it has six holes in the inner ring rather than 8.
