Product: 024103 5-Inch by 8 Hole 180 Grit Premium Plus C Weight Paper Hook and Loop Discs, 25-Pack
Regular price: $11.52, or about 46¢ per disc.

The picture is after 30-40 seconds of sanding poplar and about 50% of the grit is gone. The consolation is I only paid $4.05 for the box.

Rick, I feel for you as bad sandpaper is not rough enough!
I bought some Mirka paper on sale so time ago and that stuff is smooth …. I mean it makes things smooth.

Thanks for the heads up on that brand!

I’ve use to use Mirka but switched to industrial abrasives after giving them a try I found they are a mark above.
