MMM doing away with Hookit II

I just found out today MMM is doing away with Hookit II and gong back(?) to Hookit. I just got up to II in the last year and will have lots of obsolete pads for DA's, an air file, hand sanding boards and blocks. Man, this sucks. As of DEC 31, 2010 it will no longer be produced by MMM. Looks like I better start stocking up.

I'm sure they will make some conversion pads. There are a lot of shops that have completely switched over to II.

Only had a little experience with hook-it II. But, I didn't think it worked well at all. Glad to see it go.

I wasted a crap load of cash buying those pads as soon as I had all the hook-it 1 pads they came out with the hook-it 2 at 30.00 a pop I hated buying them (they got me again) my butts still sore ...then they pulled the same crap with the panel weld glues I had to buy the special gun at 50.00 and they changed the tube sizes so you had to buy another 50.00 gun...
But 3-M paper just isnt that good anymore..and dont even get me started on those rolls of gold sticky paper (what a rip-off)...I was using the Imperial paper until I tried Fandelli made in Mexico its far superior in every way.and cheaper its hard to wear a piece out.the 36-80 grits are absolutely fantastic and the best I've ever used but so are the finer grits available all the way up to 1200 in 6" DA ....
As far as 3-m goes ....good bye and good riddance
go screw yourself for a change and give my butt a rest.

Thanks Michel, now I need to find a source for the Messican paper you use. Do they also have a hook and loop fastening system and not just sheets?

yes ,but the paper has a soft felt on it .....I can get you in contact with my guy "Eddie" and he can hook you up with a local distributor if you like...PM me and I'll give you his number...
I use a german paint gun because I buy the best I can ,I dont care what country its made in as long as its the best bang for my buck...and if theres a country that needs money its Mexico mabee we can keep a few of them in their own country if they have a job working at a sandpaper factory....

I never thought of Carborundum for sandpaper, just wetstones and other stone related abrasives.

The thing I really LOVE about fandelli 's coarser grits like 36-80 is they have a cloth type material backing that wont tear when you run into a sharp obstruction like paper will...a box seams to last forever..
some times you find a product that is so good you stop looking for something better or cheaper...like my Epoxy primer and clear ...this is one of those products.....head and shoulders above the rest...I've been useing it for a few years now ....
