Dura-GRIT Carbide Block Sander & 90° TruSanding Block



Having tired of continuously replacing worn sandpaper on my rough sanding block, I picked up both the Carbide Block Sander and 90º TruSanding Block from Dura-GRIT. I figured they would save time and frustration, and that has surely been the case. Whether I’m easing edges on projects, jigs and fixtures, or rough lumber, they have both performed very well. The Block Sander is a solid all-around performer, while the 90º TruSanding Block is great for when you want to maintain a square edge or to remove only high spots. Although they both come in many different grits, I have only used the 80 grit version. I think it’s time I picked up the other grits as well. I’ll let you know how well they last, but you might have to wait a few years. For more information, read our review.
