220 Grit Diamond Hand Pad

Item# 77022
Perfect edges, September 26, 2018 5 stars
Pros
Less expensive option. Works well.
Cons
Mesh will separate from block eventually. Don't leave in water while you work.
Other Thoughts
I go through these fairly quickly. They are a good, less expensive choice than others

Good value, December 30, 2016 4 stars
Pros
Inexpensive set to start cold-working by hand.
Cons
120 mesh has come loose. Will replace as opposed to repairing with glue, fanatic about sharp, clean edges.
Other Thoughts
To be fair, I have used these heavily for more than a year.

Leather smooth and classic looking for more casual pieces or men's jewelry. Lobster claw nice.
Cons

Chain is rather cheap looking. I frequently take it off.

scratched...badly, December 30, 2016 2 stars
Pros
Nice color assortment
Cons
Almost all pc's were badly scratched. Usable in some projects but not for what I'd planned.
Other Thoughts
I realize it's scrap but these were outside the parameters of normal scratches on scrap.

Actually works!, July 26, 2016 5 stars
Pros
Produces pieces which need only minimal cold-work. Fast lay-up.
Cons
REALLY pricey. Not sure the recommended shelf paper is needed, don't care for the texture it adds.
Other Thoughts
On-edge, or pattern work where glass doesn't quite meet the edge, will still involve cold-work to get crisp edges but it's quicker than the standard layup.

Surprisingly Nice, July 26, 2016 5 stars
Pros
Sleek modern look. Large glue surface. Popular with customers.
Cons
I'd like an option for plain only...and larger packs.
Other Thoughts
Tried the other (plain) tube bails. These are better imho
