1611004 - Merlin2, 2" (50mm) H&L Backing Pad, Medium, Part #10064
MERLIN2 Hook & Loop (H&L) Backing Pad (10064) - Medium is a 2” (50mm) diameter premium interface pad with genuine hook and loop material on the face. The medium density foam stays firm and allows you to apply added pressure to the pad for woodworking sanding applications requiring precision across uneven surfaces. It increases abrasive cuts and enables more consistent contact of abrasive sanding discs on even surfaces, plus the pad allows closer sanding to edges for smoother, more refined finishes. The backing pad fits 2.0 to 2.2” (50-56mm) sandpaper discs that directly connects to the Merlin2 miniature angle grinder. Though it can be used on the single speed Merlin2, it is best used on the variable speed model which allows greater control with its speed dial. This allows you to dial the speed up or down depending on your application. The 2.2” (56mm) discs fold and curl over the backing pad edge to prevent damage and remove scratches from perpendicular side edges. The soft pad conforms to the shape of the wood or workpiece depending on the pressure you apply. Using both medium (#1611004) and soft (#1611003) pads help build shapes easier, whether convex or concave (inward, outward and contoured shapes).
