    Dunno Alistair,I had a velco backed disc but didn't like it.It rounded over the corners on stuff because it was spongy.I finally took the velcro off and used the sticky discs instead.
    I just need one more tool,just one!

      Possible Solution

      Couldn't you stick the opposite type velcro to your sander and then glue the sticky disks to the back of the velcro? Just might work and solve your immediate problem.


      Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!

      Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.

        Why not remove the velcro from the disc? You can always put it back. Obtain some perchlorethylene and, using a syringe as an applicator, squirt it along the adhesive-disc interface as you gently peel the velcro away. I once salvaged $150.00 worth of postage stamps-they had been covered in clear packing tape before cancelling. granted, these were $8.00 stamps, but the whole job took about ten minutes.
