So where is the best place to buy Abralon pads online?

Looking to replace what I have with some fresh pads.

Buy a 12 pad combo pack (choose your grits) free shipping and it comes out to about $2.60 per pad.

ebay for sure, there are a bunch of sellers who have combo deals for insanely cheap. I got a pack of 5 pads for 15 bucks a while back, you can pick which grits you want and everything

I used to get them from Supergrit.com, but now I just get them off e-Bay; a little cheaper and you can mix the grits and get whatever quantity you need.

Looking on eBay, might go with Siaair instead. I use them on a ball spinner and just for myself. Says they last longer than Abralon.

Bowlingbeat.com also sells Siaair for the same price as Abralon.

If you can get a full box of each the best is National Abrasives Inc in Lewisberry Pa.

Get my Siaair pads from Prosourcecenter on eBay for $2.65 a pad. You can mix grits as well. They have a website too, but there prices on ebay were lower last time i purchased some.

I got them last time from bowlpba300 (click the hyperlink) on ebay. I got a 12 pack for 33 bucks, free shipping. They have abralon grit levels 180,240,360,500,600,800,1000,1500,2000,3000,4000 which you can mix and match. I think you can add Sia Air pads in grit levels 240,600,800,&1500 in with your mixing according to the page, you'd have to ask on that. They sell higher and lower quantities than what I linked.
 

Also, if you are looking for some cheap, good, microfiber towels try djstreasuregarden. You can get 6 towels for like 7 bucks plus like 3 or 4 bucks shipping. Basically 6 towels for the price of 1 online.

 google AB Gloves and Abrasives. usually a box of abralon (20 pads) will be about 50 bucks. they also have a mix and match deal for around the same price. no siaair though.

Without going to Ebay (I don't buy on Ebay), the only Siaair Pads I could find at a low price ( $2.55 each) when Googling for them was...

 


 

However, they are 5" pads and not 6" pads.

 

I use a 5" CAB with my 6" Abralon Pads and they hang over the edge of it 1/2" all of the way around the CAB, so they get no use there. So if I buy 5" pads for a 5" CAB, I am assuming this will work ok, will it?

 

It seems Grizzly doesn't offer all of the pads they once did and if tehy do, I can't seem to locate them on their site.

I would say the 5" pads should work just fine, maybe even better with me just using them on a ball spinner.
Thanks for all the replies, I think it not only helped me but a lot of people looking for Abralon or Siaar pads.

Jim,
 
Here's a search I did on Grizzly for "Siaair Velvet":
Looks like almost all the grits are there. I did not check every one.
 
Be careful of ProSourceCenter. I ordered once from him last year via Ebay. Seems like his prices and product service are very good, his customer service sucks. My order was not delivered for 1, 2, then 3 weeks. It was sent USPS Priority Mail, with a Conf Del number. I asked him about it, via email 3 times with zero response from him. The package seemed to be stuck in Portland or Seattle. He never had the courtesy to reply or send a replacement. It finally arrived 4 weeks after I ordered. So everything was fine until somethign went wrong, then he fumbled on customer service big time.

I used prosourcecenter about 2 months ago.....bought 20 siaair pads for $53, and had a flawless shopping experience. I purchased through eBay and realized right after I ordered that I never selected any grits, so I called the number listed and spoke with someone who instantly pulled my order up and took care of it. He assured me they were going in the mail that afternoon. I received them in 4 days, and being in Alaska, that's pretty dang fast. Just figured I would include some positive feedback.
