Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone has a good source for higher grit (1000-6000) PSA backed sanding discs (6”) here in Canada. Looking for cheaper abrasives for my worksharp.

Thanks

Luke

Thanks, I will probably get some from here but the higher grits are really hard to find.

@PurpLev: Chisels and plane irons on my Worksharp 3000. I can order all the grits from them or BusyBee but it is pretty expensive, about $10 per sheets on the higher grits (3600 and 6000) once taxes and shipping are paid. I am a 9 hour drive from the closest place I can buy them.

I see.
Thanks for the reply.

ever consider getting stones for the higher grits? at that point you are not removing much material anymore – just polishing, so not a whole lot of time/work on the stones

Yeah I have stones and have been using them to remove the burr and put a final polish on the micro bevel, the worksharp is really smokin’ fast though for touching up an edge on the fly, and no mucking with registration jigs or anything like that (and no having to trust my shabby freehand skills).

Have your say...
