    I am back on my projects again after a long summer away from the electronics hobby.

    I decided to use the method of using a rotary Scotch Brite pad in my drill press as Sgt. Wookie suggested in a previous thread.

    I stopped by Home Depot today and browsed the drill accessory section and did not see any.

    Where do I get the rotary Scotchbrite pads? Maybe look in the rotary tool accessories section (I think HD has a separate section for Dremel etc.)?

    Last time I was in Harbor Freight Tools they had a bunch of different kinds.

    Haven't looked in Big Orange or Big Blue hardware stores for them lately.

    Ace Hardware might carry them.

    Thanks Sarge. I was going to give HF a look anyway. They have one of those cool multifunction oscillating tools on sale.

    Only ones I've seen were of a rather coarse grit.

    I picked up some blue ones that were pretty fine after using 'em for a minute or so on some steel.
