This is a review of the Alpha Abrasives plastic sanding needles

I wasn't able to find the assorted sanding needles on the Alpha Abrasives website. There were only individual packages of course, medium, and fine.

The needles are evidently made in a two-part mold because there are two mold lines running down the shaft. Not very good if you want to sand a round hole. The mold lines would cause a nick in the hole.

Another item is the point. When/if you break the point or round it off, how are you supposed to get the point back?

While they may be useful for sanding contours, I can't see them being used on round holes like a headlight or taillight.

Thank you to IPMS for allowing me to review this product.
