Tried Formby's...no luck. They only sell to distributor and the ace hardware people don't have it and don't even know the sku #.
e-mail from Formby's:
Dear Frank,
Thank you for taking the time to contact Formby's. We appreciate hearing from you.
I did not find a retailer in your immediate vicinity who has purchased Formby's Finish Applicator Pads in the past six months. Ace Hardware, Do It Best Hardware, True Value Hardware, Wal-Mart, and select independent paint and hardware stores tend to carry the best selection of the Formby's product line. The standard merchandising plan for these stores includes the entire Formby's product line, though this is not always the case. Some stores limit their selection based on their geographical location and current market trends.
You may also order any of the Formby's products directly through ACE Direct at 1-800-441-4223 or on-line at www.acehotline.com. The SKU (product) number for Finish Applicator Pads is 30027000.
Please let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck with your project.
Sincerely,
Donna Formby's Product Support

Did you try your local Ace hardware? If it's in the Minwax catalog (Formbys is a Minwax brand) and still in production they should be able to get it for you.
FWIW, much googling revealed a UPC code 3205330027, and two suppliers that had every Formby's product _but_ that one.
Everybody seems to have a Formbys Furniture Face Lift Kit for 20 bucks or so that includes three of them.
I'd lay good odds that they don't do anything that the 24 piece set of foam brushes that Rockler and Grizzly sell for under 7 bucks doesn't do. If I really thought that it did my gut reaction would be to get some foam brushes and get the face lift kit and compare and if the Formbys pads really did make a difference then I'd worry about how to get them without paying for the face lift kit.

Hi Frank,
Donna is out of the office. The SKU # is 30027000. We're not permitted to sell direct.
Hope this helps.

One little note on foam brushes. I did a rather extensive project awhile back and though I seldom use foam brushes I bought a few of the cheapies and a few of the more expensive ones. I could definitely tell the difference in the amount of bubbles and lines left in the finish. Here is a link to the better of the two at Lowes: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId3411-159-L3102-2&lpage=none
I found this post in another group, maybe it will help you get the pads

Formby's Tung Oil Applicator Pads
Posted by Hardlyhandy on August 22nd, 2006 12:48 PM In reply to Formby's Finish Applicator Pads by Unregistered-Donnie Gibson on April 14th, 2006 06:38 PM I really like these pads for applying tung oil, but I also can no longer find them in my area. However, I contacted Formby's and they put me in touch with a hardware store out of Fl. that will mail order them. The number is 1-800-441-4223. The product number is 30027. Good Luck
