Hello

This may seem like a off question but considering some of the aggravation people have removing used paper from the disc I was curious as to what (if any) average grit you use? I just picked up a 12” Jet and before I buy some paper I should ask.

Thanks again,
Ray

What do you want to do with it? Hog off or fine sand end grain? That should tell you. Could be 80-320. Lucky me, I have an old shop Smith that I use for a sanding machine, belt sander on one side of the power head and I have 4, 12”’ sanding disc, various grits, for the other side spindle, just a snap to change them.

I use 150 in mine, will take the meat off if needed and not too much normally. That said I wish I had the ability to change them easily like my ROS.

Thank you… I guess there is a lot to look at but considering I have one maybe I’ll go with 120 and see from there.

Thanks again,
Ray
