The stuff is amazing. Not sure I mentioned that in my previous replies. I've removed stuck dried paint between the door and jamb like your photos many times and it handles that heavy paint build up with ease. Gotta give props to Sarah in the UK at TDS for turning me on to the system and our local Mirka rep has been awesome to work with. Good customer service people leave a lasting impression.

That's it, you've convinced me. I'll be getting a roll of 120 and a Flex Edge pad and I'll also be trying the Abranet on the Hyde hand sander. I'm thinking that with a little experimentation I should be able to deal with the excessive suction issue. I'll post a review of my system once I work out the bugs.

Which Hyde sander you referring to? If its the one in my post #15, PM me, I'll send you mine. I won't be using it again.

I have used the Hyde sander it workers pretty good ! I haven't
Try it with abranet paper though waiting for a roll to come in the mail . I also have to check and see if the connections from the Hyde connect to the festool.

I had an idea to control the suction on a shopvac, but I don't know if it will work. I would appreciate input from anyone with electrical experince. Could a dimmer switch be mounted to the side of a shopvac and the power wired through it? You could be able to control the amount of current going to the motor, and thus the speed. It would be like having a throttle on your shopvac. Would this work?
