600 Grit Sheet Sandpaper for Bowls?
Dec 4th, 2016 at 7:30pm
 
Norton 3X has always been long lasting for spots on bowls needing hand sanding, for bands and beads, and so on.  But it's not made beyond 400 grit.  Once I tried some Finklat (sp?) but it seemed to wear much more quickly than the 3X.  Wet-dry paper I've tried was either dark brown or dark gray, and left a brown or gray residue on the wood that I had to remove with 400 grit 3X.  I've tried Norton 3u Gold stearated, but it is intended for sanding finishes and I thought it didn't last long on raw wood.

Can anyone recommend an 8.5" x 11"  600 grit sanding sheet that can be cut into quarters?

Not in 8.5x11" sheets but a very good product in my experience is Siasoft, I have used their grits to 800 with good results.

Standard sheet sandpaper is 9" x 11"
Sia-soft is only one of many SIA Abrasives products made for wood.
Don, for your application, SIA does have sheet paper in 600 grit in several product families.

Don, I use Abralon to P600 to polish raw wood and after first coat when using film finish.

More often I polish with white scotch brite pads.
