Description

Flexible backing pad for sander/grinders
st0275-pad-flex

Flexible backing pads are made with an ‘edge’ that allows better contouring…thus you can hold the pad at a bit of an angle to the work…allows you to get around tough to reach spots a bit easier.

  • Standard, air-cooled (due to spiral ribs), all purpose.
  • Flexible edge with spiral ribs to provide contact points and form channels for air flow extending disc life 30-50%.
  • Flexibility is useful on uneven surfaces

Pads are slightly undersized (e.g. 4-1/2″ is actually 4-1/8″), so the abrasive disc will extend beyond the edge of the disc. Thus edge of the rubber pad will not touch the work surface.

4-1/4″ (sometimes called a 4-1/2″), backing pads are available in two sizes.

  • a ‘threaded’ center shaft (5/8″ shaft), used on electric tools such as Makita sanders, polishers, grinders.
  • a ‘smooth bore’. (5/8″ shaft), commonly used on Black and Decker, Dewalt, and Milwaukee electric tools and most pneumatic tools.
  • The ‘smooth bore’ has a more flexible edge than the ‘threaded bore’. For more flex in a threaded variety try the 5 inch flex pad    (You’ll need the 5″ sanding pads)

The 5″, 7″ and 9″ flexible backing pads are available in the 5/8 threaded bore only.

Lock nut is optional, however it should be ordered as it has a lower height profile than the conventional lock nut.

Spanner wrench is used with locking nuts…however many tools have a built-in lock button that performs the same task…(with the addition of your gloved hand to spin the pad, nut, and abrasive disc on/off).
