The Sandflex Sanding Blocks keep your tools looking like new and shiny.
They are comprised of silicon carbide abrasive embedded throughout the rubber block. This block cleans, blends, and matte-finishes. For wet or dry application. Can be used with water, solvents, or detergents.
Think of it like a rust eraser for your tools. They work on metal like an eraser works on paper. Whether you need to shine up your shears, or just remove a bit of stubborn rust from a concave cutter, these rubberized abrasive blocks are just the thing. You can cut these block into smaller sizes with a knife to fit any shape.
Because the grit is impregnated throughout the block, they last until the last little piece of block is gone; as they wear new grit becomes exposed.

"Passion is the biggest determinant of a grower's success"
Bonsai was a passion, which was sparked at a very young age of 12, when I used to go out with my uncle to collect specimens. The beauty of the trees sitting in their pots, small yet majestic grew over me through the years and completely engulfed me in their magnificence. Having lived in different continents and countries, I have owned numerous bonsais over the years and always have had this unsatisfied hunger for more.
I am a Botanist and a certified Horticulturist. I have been living my dream with plants for the last 25 years. Having now settled down in Alberta, the love affair with the “tree in the pot” continues.....
