A long time ago, Sandvik used to make sandplates, which were sheets of steel, printed with a dot pattern of etch-resist, which were then acid etched. This resulted in undercut circles (inverted truncated cones) with a nice sharp top edge and a very even cut.

The problem is, although I bought plenty at the time, mine are now wearing out and I cannot see them on the market. Does anyone know where they can be found?   Please?

Don't buy them all before I get a chance!
David.

I wish I could turn like you.

Sandvik got taken over by Bahco. I was at the last Axminster Show, some 3-4 years ago, and ask the Bahco guys whether they still made the sandplates. The answer was that did not and that they were selling the last ones off at the show.

Sorry, I bought them before you had a chance.

I suspect that they lasted too long.

Thanks Bill

The things were so useful too! Nothing like them for tidying up a sawcut, or getting into corners. I've recently made a bowl with a scalloped edge, and the old sandplate got right down into the Vee's like nothing else. You can try it with folded abrasive sheets, but they round off the corners! I think I'll find some inexpensive cabinet scrapers and glue on some different grits!

I bet that won't last as long!

I was watching hulu.com and the advertisement was for this product Sandplate by Sandvik..how do you get hold of it in the US? This is January 2011 so it has to be available somewhere?

Can you remember where the details of the sandplate manufacturing process of were published? I'd like to know more about it.

My company sells NT Cutter, which is like Sandvik Sandplate. It would be interesting to include some information about how it's made on the web page.

I have an update on the original Sandvik Sandplate.

It's still discontinued, but some original Sanvik Sandplate is available at my site sandplate.com
