Looking for "NicSand" Aluminum Oxide Sanding Gel


A discussion started in 2007 but continuing through 2018.

2007

Q. I found a bottle of NicSand Aluminum Oxide Gel at a Liquidation store here in Anchorage, Alaska. The bottle said that the gel polishes like 10,000 grit sandpaper and it was safe to use on all metals and plastics. I found that this was the best product I've used for polishing metal!

It did everything claimed and more. Problem is, I've used all of it and can't find any more. I've tried to contact the company without success. Please help me locate more of this wonderful product.

Sincerely,

"There is a time I reflect upon nostalgically -- a time when monopoly was an evil targeted by Congress and guarded against by the antitrust laws of the United States", Judge Martin said, "Today, however, the majority treats monopoly more as a board game than as an economic harm to the public".

opinion!  Hi Bernie. Sorry, but in this age where cronyism is rapidly wiping out capitalism, megacorps like 3-M achieve monopoly by hook or by crook and can then raise their prices. Their only competitor NicSand is apparently just history now =>

Q. I have all the necessary parts to use NicSand, except for the instructions. My VHS copy snarled in the player. Is there a DVD out there somewhere?

Q. Where can I find 10000 grit gel?. Supergrit.com only offered 3000. Is there a similar product out there?
