Subject:
Festool sander questions....

Barry Irby
I have a 6" Festool Rotex Sander. It has the pad on it that has a hole in the center and 8 holes around the edge. I need some more sand paper disks. Looking on line two types came up, one with the eight holes like my pad has and others with many holes called Jet Stream. Which should I buy?

Without know any difference I bought some of the jet stream ones at Woodcraft. Is it OK to use them? Do I need to replace the pad? And, I am specifically looking for 80 grit, which of the grit types would you buy, Rubin, Granat, or what?
