    I would think so, As i have moved from Flex sanders to festool & the last of the flex pads we had
    with out the 10mm foam backing were used on the festool sanders.

    We allso put the radius 360 pads on both machines

    Got to say, I'm liking the Belmore discs, didn't like the look of them to start,but after using a few, think they match Nortons and are a tad smaller so you can slap them on without trying to align it perfect. Good job

    We spent long time testing the discs and sampling different grades before selecting the discs - and they were designed smaller on purpose!

    We found during tests with other discs that the outer 15 mm of the disc was pointless and didnt actually sand effectivly, making them smaller makes them more effective at removing dust around the edge of the head and like you say the design of all the new sanders especially the ones with various hole patterns, mean you have to line up perfectly to make them effective at removing dust.

    They are aslo made for us in Swizerland, so quality control is second to none especially with all the far eastern abrasive 'tat' we have to put up with.

    Used them this week for the first time (120grit) and i would recommend them as a good quality sanding disc with plenty of staying power and above all good value for money. Nice one Belmoreboy.
