In my recent hand tool class we used rolled adhesive-backed sandpaper to do some of the basic sharpening on the lapping plate. I thought I’d share the resource if anyone should be interested.

We used the 3M 2.75” wide fre-cut open coat 216u

150 grit UPC #02596
180 grit UPC #02595
220 grit UPC #02594
400 grit UPC #02590

This paper worked well and did not load up as fast as some paper I’ve used. If you use a small brush to clean the paper every now and then it stretches the paper’s life.

Thanks for the info, Betsy. I will look into this. I go through a lot of sandpaper and would like to be able to get it cheaper.

Thanks, Betsy. They carry a wide array of products. I wanted to give you another site, Klingspor woodworking, so that you can compare prices.
