I know what type of sandpaper I want, but I dont know where to get the specific type of sandpaper in a larger quantity. I would like to get the sandpaper in a 50 pack in four different grits 80,120,180 and 220. I am looking for the 3m or norton brand in a cloth backed aluminum oxide grit. Any feed back would be great.

If you are willing to try a different brand, check out this review “Industrial Abrasive. Ryno grip hook and loop sand paper” by lumbejok ken90712. I have not used this type of sandpaper yet myself, but the prices seem reasonable and the reviews are favorable.

Try these places:

http://www.industrialabrasives.com/

Some items are cheaper at one vs the other. Check both of them.

Ditto the Klingspore I’ve had great luck with them.

Big Orange store sells the Norton in 50 sheet packs for all grits except 180. Don’t know why they skip this grit?

You can also try Supergrit. Some of the bulk stuff I get from them are brands I’ve never heard of but they have always performed as good if not better than 3M. They also have Mirka, which I feel is much better than 3M or Norton. Their prices can’t be beat.
