As I've mentioned in prior posts, I'm new to turning. I love turning things, mostly pepper mills and pens so far, but sanding is driving me nuts. I know most people don't enjoy it, but I'm hoping there are some tips that will help me out. My chief problem is that I get a lot of cross grain scratching that's very hard to get out. I'm using the cloth backed rolls that are sold as the woodturners multi-roll sanding kit. I start at 150 and work my way through the grits, but invariably, I get a "rogue" scratch that isn't removed by the next grit. I get that sanding on the lathe is by its nature cross grain sanding, but jeez, there's got to be a better way. Am I sanding a too high or liw of a speed? Please help with some of those sage tips that make me go "oh,,,that's the trick! Thanks.
