I don’t know the brand off hand, I would have to go out to the shop and look but I have been using and liking that blue sandpaper lately. I think it may be 3M.

I use Norton 3X (100, 120, 150, & 180). This works out great for me!

I like the Norton 3X, but day-in, day-out, you can’t beat 3M, for my money. Great products across the board. (Nope, don’t work for them).

I’ve used Mirka for years, and I like PSA for my random orbit sanders.
Only one time I ordered a box of 220 grit, but they didn’t put enough adhevise on that particular batch.
I called them and told them the problem, and they sent me 2 boxes back…...free..This batch was good.

That’s good business.

Thanks to these forums on LJ’s I found a great company Industrial Abrasives. I bought Rhynogrip 60-320 grit for my ROS, their customer service people actually called me to let me know if I bought just one more box, they’d give me a better price on each box purchased.

I was pleasantly surprised when my order arrived and they had included an assortment of the “green” scratchy pads at no charge. They shipped a few white, red and green pads with the order.

I had been using the Norton disks from HD, but I seem to burn through them pretty quickly, so I’m glad I decided to give these a try. They have all sorts of papers for just about any tool you have.
