I’m about to pick up some Kingsplor abrasive disks for my Bosch ROS65 and I have no clue which type of abrasive is best for woodworking. Which all the choice, I’m lost.. Stearate, Stearate Latex, Stearate A/O, Heavyweight, Lightweight, etc…

Any recommendations where to start?

buy a small pack of each to experiment with for the type of work you will be doing.
some woods behave differently when sanded.

To add to John’s comment….Most brands will have a variety pack of grits that will give you an idea of which ones you are most likely to use.

Appreciate the comments and I thought about the variety packs, but I would rather get a buy a few packs that work well for woodworking right off the bat. I have bought the “mystery boxes” in the past and been pretty well please with what I received, so I may pick up one or two anyways.

Anyone using Kingsplor H&L disks?

I use the Klingspor Gold disks and very satisfied. I have them from 80 -320 grit.

I linked the discs below that I’m thinking of ordering… also believe it’s the same one’s Redoak is referring to.

50 pk puts the cost at about .36 a disc. not bad.

Thanks for the feedback.

You might want to check out Industrial Adhesives to see their offerings & prices. I’ve used them for a while after seeing a comment by Charles Neil sometime back.
I just ordered some rhynosoft sanding pads & spindle sleeves. Found their prices better than others.

No, not the ones I was referring to. Do a search for Klingspor Gold. Your link is to a lightweight disk. Cheap yes but light weight.

Check out Klingspor’s variety pack. It’s a good deal and lets you try different things to see what you like best. Then you buy more of that style.

I use Klingspor stearate paper (kind if a cream color sanding disc) the numbers will be VD9000x
Basically the 9000 series paper, and I have been very pleased with how they sand. They last a very long time as well.
