Manager at Crown showed me some Indasa discs today. They are compatible with Mirka heads, have a coloured wear indicater and are half the price of Mirka discs.

Has anyone got experience of these, and if so, are they any good?

Apparently Indasa will be making a sander and extractor as well, but no information yet.

It's already out there mate. Paintshack sell them.

I've been using their flexible sanding pads for a few years and they're really good.

The extractor looks like the offspring of a Festool CTL Midi and a Nuvac Henry. The orbital seems very reminiscent of a Ceros, but probably not a bad thing. They don't appear to be cheap copies of other gear I must say.

They just have a few shop samples, but I've got some 80 and 120 discs on order, so will report back. The extraction holes don't seem as large as the ones on the Mirka sander face, so a possible reduction in air flow perhaps, but they can always be enlarged if they do well at sanding/cutting. :salute:

Got a pack of the 120 grit discs yesterday (50 for £19) and should get around to trying them later today. They're around 30% cheaper than the Mirka equivalent, so fingers crossed they work OK.

Just used my Fossa disc 120. Dust extraction was very good, on par with Abranet.
Started sharp but very quickly dulled to a boring level. I flattened off a 6x2 cupboard door and it lost its grunt after one side (not great at all) Infact I changed it to a cheap one I got off Amazon which was yellow with 10 ish holes (can't quite remember) and ridiculously cheap and that soon took up the slack.

The cheap ones aren't mesh so you do lose out on extraction but still very effective.

That's it for now.

How did you get on Dynamod?

Not good mate. Will strike that one from the bucket list! [WHITE SMILING FACE]

Dynamods taking some time with his feedback. Very thorough that lad.
