Sort By:
Abrasive Paper and Cloth
Jewelry abrasive paper, jewelry sand paper and emery paper are a standard in the jewelry industry. The abrasive paper can be used for gold jewelry, silver jewelry, metal clay and much more. We stock a variety of styles and manufacturers to cover your needs.

Aluminum Oxide Abrasives from 3M
3M ALUMINUM OXIDE is widely used as a coarse and fine abrasive. The most common form of aluminum oxide is called corundum. Its low heat retention makes it ideal for grinding. 3M uses sharp, resin bonded aluminum oxide grain that provides a fast, continuous cut and long-life performance. The abrasive is uniformly applied for a fine, consistent finish. Use on metal or wood, wet or dry.

Belt Sander and Belts
Belt sanders provide cutting power and ease-of-use to those large or difficult polishing jobs. The sanders can be bench mounted giving control and freedom of movement when handling your work pieces. A variety of abrasive belts are available depending on the level of cutting you need.

Brightboy Abrasives
Brightboy Abrasives are for cleaning, polishing and finishing. The wheels are made from natural rubber with graded pumice grain evenly distributed to assure uniform results. Light action produces a smooth finish on soft metals.

Bristle Discs from 3M
3M Radial Bristle Discs are a unique design in polishing and cleaning that is superior to sand paper, flap wheels, and other types of abrasive wheels. These Cubitron and aluminum oxide impregnated discs feature flexible bristles that can be used for cleaning, pre-polishing, blending, and texturing. They can be used on precious and semi-precious metals. The discs are flexible and thin enough to get into crevices and small places. To cover larger areas, stack several discs together.  There is also no clean up from messy polishing compounds.

The 3M Radial Bristle Discs are also color coded according to grit so that you can more easily find and use the best disc for the job.  Made in the USA.

Cool Wheels

Cool wheels have many uses including texturing, grinding and cleaning of metal or plastic. The Cool wheels keep the grinding process cool making the suitable for plastics. When used for texturing they produce a matte finish.

The mizzy heatless wheels can be trued with a file.

Cratex Rubberized Abrasives
Cratex abrasives are made of premium-quality silicon carbide that has been washed, dried and treated to remove impurities. The Cratex abrasive is bonded to oil-resistant chemical rubber that creates a unique cushioned action. Unlike grinding wheels, Cratex wheels and points cut freely, smoothly and softly without gouging or digging into the work surface. Cratex resists clogging and smearing and is ideal for a broad rage of metallic and non-metallic surfaces

Cratex is available in four standard grits which differ according to mesh size of abrasive grain used; COURSE (Green), MEDIUM (Dark Brown), FINE (Reddish Brown), EXTRA FINE (Grey Green).

Cubitron Abrasives from 3M
3M CUBITRON is 3M's patented purple ceramic aluminum oxide abrasive that sharpens itself during use. After initial grinding, the abrasive grains fracture along micro fissures to create new cutting surfaces. This process continues throughout the grinding. The result is an abrasive that lasts 2-4 times longer than traditional aluminum oxides (depending on the grit). You will have faster removal of material with less heat and "loading" (debris build up on the abrasive itself). When you want the "best" coated abrasive for grinding and sanding metal, wood, plastic and other materials, just look for purple; 3M Cubitron purple!

Diamond Abrasives from Edenta
Edenta Swiss Diamond Polishers or "Ceragloss" polishers are a superior, diamond impregnated, rubberized abrasive. They provide an excellent finish on platinum and titanium. The wheels are points are mounted on 3/32" shanks for use with your flexshaft machine.

Polish in a 3-Step process beginning with green (Coarse), then blue (Medium) and finishing with yellow (Fine).

Diamond Flex Abrasives from 3M
3M's FLEX DIAMOND offers the cutting power of diamond and the strength of a metal bond. They have great durability and long life. Ideal for grinding stone ceramic, composites, glass marble fiberglass and hard to grind metals. Removes material quickly and leaves a uniform finish cutting sanding time in half. For longer life, use water or a bur lubricant as a coolant. 3M Flex Diamond Abrasives are excellent for inside ring clean up, shaping and carving stones. They can be used on metals or stones.

Eve Flex Twists
EVE Twists were designed in Germany for polishing precious and non-precious metals. Think of them as a cross between a bristle brush and an abrasive wheel. Use these light weight wheels with your flexshaft or micromotor on a screw-top mandrel.

They are super-thin, knife edge, abrasive impregnated discs that can be used by themselves or stacked together. This versatility allows you to polish items of any detail. The thin "fingers" can polish down into crevices and cracks, and their flexibility makes for a smooth, even finishing.

The EveFlex Twists cover a wide range of grits; from 1
00 to 8000grit in addition to fine and medium pumice (and color coded for easy identification). Use the grits individually for specific jobs or in succession from coarse to fine to achieve a beautiful finish. They also come in 3 sizes (5/8", 3/4" and 1" diameters) depending on you needs.

Trizact CF Abrasives from 3M
3M's TRIZACT CF is macro-replicated aluminum oxide grain that has been embedded in uniform “bricks” on a firm backing. The abrasive mineral is always present at the working surface which results in a consistent, predictable finish from beginning to end. The layers of material in the bricks produce long-life. There is 2-3 times more mineral than conventional abrasives. They will last up to twice as long as the competition. Because there is consistent cut rate throughout, you do not have to increase pressure the longer you use it. The geometric pattern of the Trizact CF also reduces heat build up and “loading.” Great for removing scale.

Trizact EA Abrasives from 3M
3M's TRIZACT EA is aluminum oxide grain that has been embedded in uniform plastic pyramids on a firm backing. The result is an abrasive with a fast, consistent cutting rate that requires little pressure. Use for pre-polishing and finishing on all metals, glass, plastics and composites. Ideal for removing sprues and cleaning castings. You get an even finish that reduces buffing and tumbling time. Who doesn't want high performance, a uniform cut rate and reduced fatigue for the operator?
