10 PACK: Mirka AUTONET Abrasive Disc 5" (Choose your grit)

Experience the best dust-free sanding and longer product life with Mirka's Autonet mesh abrasive (also known as Abranet). Mirka Autonet is actually a wire mesh product that has the same aluminum oxide grain you're used to in your sandpaper. Instead of paper, it's on a mesh disc and it's a lot better than paper. Here's why:

  1. No more worn edges of your discs. Sandpaper discs most often wear out at the edges first. And they do it quickly if you're hard on the edges.The wire mesh of Autonet holds strong for the long haul because it's wire rather than paper.
  2. Improved dust collection. The mesh construction allows air to pass through the entire disc so with your sander connected to a vacuum more dust than ever will get sucked up. You might notice, too, that you don't have to line up the disc with your sander's dust holes . . . it's mesh, after all.
  3. Longer lifespan. Mesh discs last almost twice as long as paper discs. With better dust collection comes less clogging, and less clogging means a longer service life from the disc. Plus the abrasive holds onto the wire better than it does to paper.
  4. Works on any 5" random orbit sander with hook-and-loop pad Because this disc is mesh, you don't have to consider the number of dust-extraction holes on your sander. These discs work with any hole pattern.
  5. Changing is easy. Mesh discs use hook-and-loop to adhere to your sanding pad, just like paper discs. So, you just stick these on instead. However, you'll want to use a hook and loop pad saver, an inexpensive and thin pad that goes between the sanding disc and the pad on your sander .

lumber thickness Lumber Compared
Various lumber thickness as compared to one another
  1. Decide how much board footage you need
  2. Factor in enough to work with! You'll want to arrange grain patterns, sort color, fix mistakes, run test cuts, make finish samples, etc.
  3. Lumber comes in random widths and lengths. If you need special size considerations, please let us know by using the "Minimum Size Request" box in the order form or by confirming your needs by phone or email.
  4. Expect your final amount of footage to change slightly. Buying by the board foot is an exercise in estimation, therefore we don't know the precise amount of footage you'll receive (and be billed for) until we physically select the wood for your order.
  5. We want to get your order right! So we may need to contact you for clarification. Please use a good phone and email during checkout.

This is the unit of measurement for hardwood lumber when it's bought/sold in random widths and random lengths.

Board footage is a measurement of volume, and it's abbreviated Bd. Ft.

One board foot is equal to 144 cubic inches.

board foot formula

It's a fraction that refers to rough (RGH) sawn thickness of lumber, and it tells you approximately how many quarters of an inch make up the thickness.

Surfaced lumber is thinner because it started out as rough sawn but it's been planed smooth. Planing removes thickness.

Rough Sawn (RGH) Surfaced (S2S)
4/4 ~1" 13/16"
5/4 ~1-1/4" 1-1/16"
6/4 ~1-1/2" 1-5/16"
8/4 ~2" 1-13/16"
12/4 ~3" 2-13/16"

Unless otherwise specified, our lumber is "Surfaced 2 Sides" or S2S for short.

Check out our article if you want the full explanation.

If you can cut your own pieces to size, here's how we can help:

  1. Enter requirements into the order form where it says, "Minimum Size Request"
  2. Tell us what you want to acheive or make
  3. You will receive wood that can yeild what you need. (You will create the final size)
  4. We may need to contact you for clarification

You will cut and/or join your material to create the finished sizes you need. We'll pick out wood that will give you enough to do that. For this reason, the final amount of footage you receive in your order will be slightly different, and your final billed charge will be different.

If you want to only buy pieces of an exact size, that will be sold differently. Please contact us for a custom quote.

Sadly, wood cannot be 100% guaranteed to be clear on both sides all the time. Most of our lumber is graded "Select" and better, which means it's at minimum 83% clear on one side.
