Tried the a 120 grit today and it cleaned up some birch ply a treat, faster than ordinary discs and nice and smooth. However there was some damage to the outer edge so which interface pads are recommended? I've noted @TheTiddles recommendation to not use them if sharp edges are needed.

All interface pads lead to some softening of edges due to having some give in them. Only hard backing pads prevent that by having no give

Anybody know where I can buy a mixed order of 150mm 3M Xtract ideally a mixed order of 50 disks, 10 of each grit?
eBay you can normally get a selection of each.

Am surprised no ones mentioned SIA disc so far either.
I use a mixture of Mirka and abranet.
