I don’t particularly like garnet sandpaper either. It works but tends to clog easily and does not last very long. I like to use aluminum oxide like Bently. I generally use Online Industrial Supply for my sandpaper purchases.

I use Industrial Abrasives as often as I can especially with their 3 inch drum sander rolls. I can buy a roll with 3 wraps for a lot less than the 50 yard rolls most companies want you to buy. Their Ryno Grip hook and loop works just fine for us too and I find that most of the time a box of 50 disc is also cheaper. We’ve been using them for years and never had a problem They will also make us belts for the wide belt.

Lately I have been using some 3M “Sandblaster” paper. I like it. It sands quickly and lasts a long time in my experience. I am not sure how many different grits are available. What I have bought is a bit pricey.

I’ve had good luck with Norton 3X sandpaper. It seems to me that it does last 3X (3 times) longer.
