    Thanks for the help,

    I've ground at least a half a dozen of these, and they do take some getting used to, especially the toe. They say to put them in the freezer, it doesn't help. I'm using a 12" disc sander with a 100 grit disc set at about 2000 rpm. Just go real slow into the disc and then real slow while grinding. After you get it the size you want it, then take some turtle wax and apply to the edges, it really makes it look sharp. The main thing I can tell you is to not force the pad into the disc, it will bite really bad and leave the edge very rough and torn. Grinding these pads is definitly a first-hand experience type thing, they are done all by feel. Hope this helps. Garrett
