I've just started using the 80 and 120 and these are excellent. I also use hand planes often, and I'm hesitant to use sandpaper and hand planes together as the grit lost from the sandpaper damages the plane edges. Best I can tell, there is no loss of the cutting particles with these blocks. I used them to level wood binding on a ukulele to the body and they worked fast and kept everything level. Very useful tool.

I have been using my Dura-GRIT tools for about a year now, and I can honestly say they are irreplaceable.   I honestly love the tools. Just bought another set here recently to add to my abilities with them. They help me shape, smooth, and even rough out hard to reach areas. Absolutely love them. And I really appreciate that you take the time to check up on me!

I've used this sanding block a few times and it seems to work very well. Its a simple clever tool that works better than sandpaper. It is basically a metallic sanding surface mounting to a block of wood that is set at a 90 degree angle for straight edge sanding. It is great for sanding the edge of a board because it keeps the edge straight. I haven't had this long enough to check the durability but so far it seems to work like a very fine plane.

Given that I'd used sanding blocks with a shooting board for many years squaring part edges in aircraft construction I thought I'd order a selection to try out in furniture making. (normal sandpapers wear too rapidly to be much use on hardwoods)

I'm embarrassed to order more I really didn't "need" any. I have one of these, but I give them as gifts and then I lost my only one and it wasn't near it's half-life after maybe 3 years.  grr...   
So now I can't do without and I'm getting back-ups.  I learned to use your tools while building a Lancair 4P airplane.  I used it for the technical body work like cleaning up door gaps and detailing the insets for the landing lights lens.  Always fast and accurate!

thanks,
Jim

I first heard of Dura Grit through "Fine Woodworking Magazine."
I do like using them, because they cut fast, and last a long time, saving on sandpaper.
Many years ago, like 25, I used a similar product manufactured by "Sandvik", but they no longer make them.
So when I heard about DuraGrit I tried them and was very pleased with the performance of the product.

The TruSander is working great. I keep them both (120 and 60) on my workbench full time and they get used everyday.

I am so tired of [ordinary] sand paper diminishing and not being able to tell when to change it. My arms feel better already!

They're working great. My 120 sanding block is my go-to tool for all those quick touch up and smoothing jobs that always come up in the shop and around the house. My wife likes it too. In fact, I should probably get a 60 grit block.

I purchased a 120 grit and 80 grit block in Feb 96. Sanding is a chore and like most wood workers a chore to be avoided or enhanced with some power tool. Having said that I find that I reach for the 120 grit sanding block every few minutes.
- To smooth the rough edge of a saw cut without tearing the grain
- To smooth an edge curve at a sharp 90 degrees
- Too quickly chamfer an edge

My speciality is Marquetry ( wood inlay ) and I am finding many uses for your tools. Most are easy to demonstrate but difficult to describe as one would have to be familiar with Marquetry techniques.

However there are three specific areas I have found useful.

a. When repairing a marquetry design the piece(s) which are replaced will be slightly higher than the original, perhaps only by a few thousands of an inch. After gluing the repaired area must be leveled to the original surface. To do this I would cautiously use a cabinet scraper often pulling out pieces of the repair. Other methods such as a sanding block or a power sander, will round over the raised edges rather than level them. After refinishing, if the repair is not flush, the light will reflect around the perimeter of the repaired area, highlighting an otherwise invisible repair. The 120 Dura-GRIT block completely levels the repaired area and after a quick sanding with a 320-grit paper the repair is invisible.

b. A from of Marquetry called "Parquetry" uses a variety of jigs to create geometric designs.
Although the veneer pieces have been cut with a jig slight variations cause compound errors and distort the pattern. Until I tried the 80 grit Dura-GRIT block, I was unable to make small size adjustments by sanding the edge of a veneer piece, without destroying it.

c. Repairs to various items of furniture, tables, boxes draw fronts, etc., where 1mm boxwood bandings have been used. Required the removal of the old banding and glue, as most of the old bandings are loose, the majority can be easily removed. However before a new banding can be installed the slot must be clean. Too quickly clean away the old hide glue and the remains of the banding the 1mm Dura-GRIT Knife tool does an excellent job. I then have
a clean slot to install the new banding.

It is rare that a labour saving tool has so many practical uses, and does not "Plug in."
