I found this box of sand paper rolls on Klingspor’s web site, advertising a 20# box of end rolls for wood turners.
I like there sand paper rolls for turning and normally would buy 1.5”X10 yard rolls from them. 7 grits at about $8/ roll. so $56 when you need all of them
This deal was about $30 for a 20# box assortment at 100 Grit or finer. This box has a couple of 80 and 100 grit rolls, 5 or so each 120, 150, 180, and 220, a couple 280, and 320, and 1 of each 400, 600, and 800. Also, about half of it is on a hard backer. not at all flexible and won’t be much use at all for anything with any detail to it. I rarely use a 120 course grit. normally 180 to about 400 for most of what I do. So in the end, this was a big mistake for me. I don’t think the hard rolls fit a turners needs at all.
I would have returned it, but the 1st four rolls I pulled out were what I use most, 180, 220, 320, and 400. (Dumb luck there.)
Two months later I get around to organizing the rest of the box and discover its almost all a course grit, and on that hard backer.
Live and learn I guess.
