Don't know if this belongs under the "Woodworking Q&A" because it's not a question... more of a statement. But I've always had a HUGE assortment of sandpaper laying around the house. It was cheap junk from HOBO (store in WI) or Harbor Freight. I do not know who ever bought this stuff and why we had so much of it, but since it was around of course I'm going to use it Most of it is gone and I've run out of variety, so I went on a sandpaper buying frenzy.
I bought large packs of 80-600 grits of the Norton 3x sandpaper. What a difference. Obviously the higher grit you go, the faster it wears out, but even saying that, it is like night and day. I am a pretty firm believer (w/ a few exceptions) in "you get what you pay for" and this goes along with it.
Anyone else know of some nice sandpaper?
...what an exciting topic I've created I know
