    Where do you buy your sandpaper?

    As the title asks....where do you buy your sandpaper? I ordered from the back of a catalog many years ago but do not remember the name of the place. I need some 1" x 30" belts and 6" disks and probably sheets as well. Who has the best prices on this nowdays?

    I generally use Klingspor.

    Mirka makes a good product, too.

    What ever true value has on hand..I go through a lot of sand paper and for me it's easier to just run into town and get it.

    Mirka is good stuff, I primarily use Norton 3X for sheets as the BORG has it in contractor packs. I get belts from Klingspor and use their 'bargain boxes' too which are a good bargain for a general supply of many grits.

    I generally look for good deals online for Norton 3X sandpaper. It is by far the best that I have used and lasts much longer than most of the hardware store paper. I've looked at SuperGrit and plan to order a sample Abranet mesh sandpaper kit from them soon - I've heard good things about the Abranet and Charles Neil has had positive things to say, as well.

    Klingspore Gold is the standard IMHO. For pens I use Micro Mesh.
