Looking for "NicSand" Aluminum Oxide Sanding Gel

A discussion started in 2007 & continuing through 2017 . . .


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.

opinion!  Hi Bernie. Sorry, but in this age where cronyism is eliminating capitalism, megacorps like 3-M aren't happy about having even a small competitor, and one way or the other they achieve the monopoly they seek. Their sole competitor NicSand is just history =>

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?
