This is not a newbie question, I’d like to know what grit you find yourself using the most?
Back in Spring I picked up a Jet JSG-6 from the GM Janesville plant auction. It’s been sitting in the garage since then because I didn’t have benchtop space for it. Well I got the Jet enclosed stand for it Friday (that was a total fiasco, took 2 months to the day) so I’m cleaning it up and mounting it and soon will be using it. So I’m wondering what is the most popular grit that is used.
I tend to use a lot of 220 grit so I’m wondering if that would be a good choice. With my planer and jointer doing a good job at keeping the wood smooth, and also drum sander, I don’t use a lot of 80, 120, or even 150. In fact I have 120 and 220 for the drum sander and pretty much only use 220.
The belt is pretty easy to change so I’m thinking maybe have a few grits on hand, but which ones? The disc is not so easy to change and then reuse the disc over but I have discs on hand for my Delta 12” disc sander so for now I’ll use one of those.
