These radiused sanding pads are the same as those used in the guitar making book and DVD series by John S. Bogdanovich. Both radiused sanding pads come equipped with a comfortable yet sturdy hardwood handle that is firmly attached with hardwood dowels that go clear through the pad.
The 25 foot radius pad is 6 1/2 inches long and used to final shape the lower bout of the solera and the underside of the bridge for an accurate match to the dome of the top. The 15 foot radiused sanding pad is 5 1/2 inches long and is used to final shape the back workboard. Both pads are 4 1/2 inches wide. These pads are perfectly sized for quick cutting and easy use. Sandpaper on the bottom is easily replaced when worn, or for using different grits.
These sanding pads may also be used in shaping the radiused sanding discs used in the guitar building book and DVD series. Pads come with 80 grit sandpaper adhered to the radiused surface.

I have both the radius sticks and the radius sanding pads. They are very nice!

A quality product, but some suggestions………
…. It would be a good idea to label each so that you can easily determine which is the 15 ft radius pad and which is the 25 ft. I had to figure it out by comparing them to the radius sticks that I hand made from the plan. Also it would be nice to know the grit of the sandpaper that they come with. Again I had to compare the feel to some of my shop samples.

All your questions are addressed in the product description, the size of each pad along with its respective radius as well as the grit of sandpaper used. I will be stamping them with the respective radius in the future.
