Hi
I am thinking about buying the cordless edge sander and have quite a few Mirka abranet sanding discs 125 cm size. The edge sander is also 125. The question is can I use the mirka abranet discs with the festool ?
Anyone know about this? I asked festool but they were a bit cryptic!

It’s just a Velcro pad isn’t it so there should be no problem, I’ve used mesh abrasive on my ETS just not abranet

I use them all the time on my Festool sander. It's vital that you use the backing pads as Abranet kills velcro, and with Festool plates at about £40....
The worn-out backing pads, folded in half, make a great backing for worn-out discs when you're hand sanding.
