Default Fiberglass Tool Trifecta

I must say, I have gone through a lot of sandpaper while working on fiberglass, but no more. Decided to try a couple new tools and must admit that these 3 tools in combination with each other are absolutely spectacular.

Dremel Saw-Max: Cuts through fiberglass like butter. has so much torque it twists in your hand when it starts (start it off the workpiece) and never gets bogged down in the cut.

Oscillating tool (Dewalt): with 60 grit sandpaper this thing shaves down edges like a champ.

Permagrit Wedge Block: Just like sandpaper wrapped around a 2x4 but doesn't wear out (hasn't yet at least) and doesn't scrape up your hand over time like the stuff wrapped around a 2x4.

Highly recommend these 3 tools for fiberglass work.
