Default Polishing Keg-Cant find any Gator polishing pads

Has anyone recently been able to spot the Gator Surface Finishing pad. They are listed on Lowes website, but you cant order them, nor are they in store. I dont see them on Gators website either.

Anyone have an alternative?

These are them:

Cancer from all the polishing pad dust/compound.

I used scotchbrite pads. Grey ultra fine from my old job.

Yea, I'd recommend an N95 mask (or cartridge filter if you have it) for ANY type of sanding/polishing. There's all kinds of harmful stuff in almost anything. For example any type of treated wood before 2003, or around there, is treated with arsenic. So if you have a 10+ year old deck that needs sanding and refinishing, then you are setting yourself up to inhale a good amount of Arsenic. Its treated with copper now.

The mask captures the particulate. Use a fan to move anything that's vaporous away from you as that will go through the N95.
