Topic tags/keywords: sandpaper scary sharp lapping

My local auto store stopped carrying pressure sensitive adhesive backed rolls of 3M wet dry sandpaper. I use it primarily for lapping and sharpening. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good online source?
I found this one http://www.supergrit.com/products/products_3MSpecials-sheets.asp
and this one
http://www1.mscdirect.com/CGI/GSDRVSM?PMTYPE=KEY&SISMNO=19023511&SIPCNO=0002008169&SIZZNO=72330970&SIS0NO=1585845&SISHNO=0&SISRC=KG&SISRCH=1&SILEVL=3&SILSEQ=68&SIT4NO=101544408

But these company names mean nothing to me so if anyone has a trusted source they are happy with, please let me know.

I know I can just stick the regular stuff down with spray glue, but I can’t spray that stuff inside and it is too frigid out this time of year for me to do it outside. Condensation when brining it in causes the sandpaper to heave off the glass.

msc is respectable. Never dealt with supergrit.

I usually don’t mess with PSA for sharpening. I just squirt some 3M Super77 if I want it glued down and just let the water tension hold it down otherwise.

Thanks David.
I’ve never had great luck with water holding the paper down. It always seems to move or bubble on me.
