Screen Driver Pads
- Designed specifically for driving sanding screens and double sided discs
- Unique design prevents slippage which improves screen/disc life, cut, and finish
- Minimizes dish out of soft grain
- Can be used to buff on stain under a rotary buffer
- The pad will hold and disperse stain evenly over the floor without slinging

Remember the buffer sands at the 3 o’clock position as you look down at the machine. Make sure you screen the unfinished wood with the screen cutting in the same direction as the grain.
- The SandDollar has the life and durability of a screen, but leaves a finer scratch pattern. Screens tend to be too aggressive for residential work, especially with newer construction using more windows and recess lights that magnify swirl marks in finishes.
- The SandDollar has grain bonded to a foam backing which allows the grain to glide over high spots in the finish and not impress too deep of a scratch into the finish. This allows it to leave a very fine scratch pattern, much finer than a screen, and at the same time scratching the surface enough to get a good mechanical bond between coats of finish.
- Some contractors like to use worn screens to abrade finishes. There are multiple problems with this practice. Once the labeling wears off, you don’t know what grit you are using. You also don’t know how worn the screen is, so you wind up with inconsistent abrading, and you may only dull the finish without putting a proper scratch to have a good mechanical bond. The color coding on the SandDollar won’t wear off, so a contractor will always know what grit he is using, especially if he is reusing the pad.
- The SandDollar uses just four different color-coded pads to abrade all finishes, between coats or in recoat applications, greatly simplifying the abrading process. A contractor can keep these four pads in his truck and be able to handle almost any job situation he may come across.
- The SandDollar pad is flexible enough to conform to uneven surfaces, making sure the finish is abraded consistently and evenly. This also minimizes the chance of cutting through the finish on high spots and edges of boards, which is especially important on recoat jobs and stained floors. You are more likely to cut through the finish with a screen.
