There's no doubt these tools make aircraft woodwork so much easier, such versatile product and a pleasure to use.

Very polite people. It was a pleasure to do business with you!
6.9.2018 - Excellent!! I reckon it was around 23 years ago when I bought my first Perma Grit block from you to build my Jet Hangar Hobby A-4 Skyhawk. That's still going strong (the block, not the A-4) I smiled to myself as elder son Jack began his Perma Grit journey with the purchase of his own new tools at the Nationals.
Two generations of very happy customers here! Thanks Ian and Tracey

There are times when something unusual crops up and a thought process kicks in.
What tool can I use to sort the problem out?
Well over 25 years ago I bought a couple of Perma-Grit tools off the Richardson's because I was fed up with wearing out my home made sanding blocks. These files / tools are still with me today doing excellent service.
Naturally I added files, burrs, saws and blocks to my prized collection, which have served to make many model aircraft, a kit car, 3 full size aircraft and stood up to many other uses such as our "Tenco" covered bench, kitchen tiles, cupboards etc.
These tools have taken on glass fibre, wood, carbon fibre, ceramics, glass and even metals.
What is more they have survived and are still going strong.
Well done Perma-Grit.
One of your first customers and a very happy one.

Ian built a Skyranger Ninja Aircraft using Perma-Grit tools. You can hear what Ian had to say about our tools when he was at the LAA Rally Sywell

Dear Tracey &Team, Brilliant
stuff! We spoke on Thursday, you dispatched immediately, Son received it
Friday, used it on Saturday (*refurbishing some panels for his boat – and says
"Thanks for the tip about flotation ")- result : delighted. I have scored a
brownie point and he is now no longer in ignorance regarding Permagrit.
How can one little sanding block be a source of so much contentment? Maybe I
should also give a nod to UKMail for being involved to some small degree, but
that seems a triviality right now.
Best regards and thanks Dave Clark

Dear Ladies, This week,
on Monday 02/07/18 at +/- 14h15, I ordered 2 x SB140 sanding blocks. On Tuesday 03/07/18 at +/- 09h30, they
were delivered by Royal Mail. What took you so long? But seriously now,
that's brilliant service. My old sanding block was bought at the London Model
Engineers exhibition at Alexandra Palace back in 2010 and has given sterling
service for the last 8 years. But like its owner, it was feeling its age and
losing its edge. The difference in performance with the new one is quite
startling. Please accept my compliments for the prompt service and rest assured
that you have made a happy man very old an old man very happy.
Regards to all at Permagrit. The

Great products with big value for almost any "grind job"!
I've been using these tools for over 20 years now, for lot's of purposes and I am still using my first bought tools (20+ years)!
It's a pleasure to work with them and a pain, forgetting them, or not to have them at your fingertips...
The biggest problem I always had, was when a fair exhibition was over and I realized, what I didn't purchase this time - luckily, there have been quite some fair exhibitions, the last decades, to correct these mistakes... ;)

PERMAGRIT TOOLS are amazing. I use Sanding Blocks, Disc Blades and Rotary Tools now for over 20 years in RC-Aircraft-Modelling.... with best results, fast and precise working. They are even today like -NEW-. Lifetime using also because of easy cleaning. These Tools are worth every cent!! Thanks to Tracy and Ian. See you at some Fair Exhibition in Germany.

An amazing product and an amazing company. I really like the products
and the philosophy of Perma-Grit - it's an ideal I try to live by in my
day to day work as a vehicle dynamist at McLaren Automotive. I would
like to offer a special thanks to Tracey and Ian for their support of my
racing efforts. I proudly wear the Perma-Grit logo on my race suit
whenever I am on track.

Permagrit abrasive tools, once you use them, you wonder how you ever
managed without them. I still have one of the early wooden handled tool
rolls in regular use and still going strong. It's very rare I do a job
in the workshop without picking up a Permagrit file, sanding block or
rotary tool. are amazing.

I have used Perma-Grit tools since getting my first set at the Sandown
Show many, many, years ago. Since then I have built a lot of models and
to this day, those same tools are used day to day in all my model making
work from small, simple models right up to the larger jets and super
scale aircraft I now make as part of my day job. Even after such a long
time use, all those tools are as good today as they were back when I
got them even if I used them on tough glass resin or carbon. They just
go on an on. Simply put, Perma-Grit tools are by far that best tools in
my workshop and I would recommend them to anyone.

My first Perma-Grit purchase, which I still own, was a 140mm sanding
block with coarse grit on one side and fine on the other. Since then my
Perma-Grit tool collection has grown to the large range I now own. The
tools are incredibly long lasting as the name would suggest. From
time-to-time they do get clogged up; I normally give them a good stiff
brushing with a "file card brush", if not a coating of paint stripper
does the job. Personally, I have not had to replace a Perma-Grit tool, I
just use-it, clean-it and proudly put it back on display in the

My business has been using tools from them for around 6 months now, and I will not be going back to my old tools. I use the files almost every day and have been nothing but impressed with their abilities. Couldn't recommend them more.

Permagrit tools offer an unrivalled level of service and product knowledge. As a business we have used their sanding tools, especially the files for years and nothing else comes close.

Permagrit is really great. We do not want to miss it anymore. Greetings from
Martin and me !
