Rich … I used the lapping grit from LeeValley and I’ve used plain old sand paper. IMHO I think a belt sander belt cut open and laid flat (I hope I explained that correctly) does an excellent job and cheaper. Depending on the condition of the sole and what you are trying to do, you could start at 150/180/220 grit and work your way up. After I’m past 320 grit I then go to wet/dry paper and work my way through those grits.
