I'm looking to buy various grits of sandpaper in bulk, more than the packs sold at home center, because it's more economical. I was wondering what grits do you use most of? I'll be using it on flat projects as well as bowl turning. I think I saw someone sand their bowls up to 320 grit. Flat work I guess you would stop at 220. I hate to have to buy 50 packs of every grit, so I'm hoping to narrow it down a little.
I'm looking at these:
It's sterated paper in 50 packs for $14. Anyone use this paper from Online Industrial Supply before. I don't know how long it would take to use up a 50 pack, though.
I thought I read somewhere that sterated paper, at least in your final grit before applying a finish, should not be used? Something about the finish not sticking to a sterated surface. Anyone know anything about that?
Lastly, does anyone have a better deal, maybe in a smaller pack?
