Best sandpaper hands down
#11
  
Lets see what everyone uses for sandpaper....

1. sheets (for hand sanding, oscillating sanders)           I use 3m Pro grade.

2. discs for random orbital sanders.                              I use Klingspor or red label abrasives

3. For drum sanders (not wide belt).                            I have been using red label abrasives zirconia

4. Edge and belt sanders                                             I have only tried klingspor but it seems to clog up


Everyone has their favorites for different reasons. I can't seem to find anything that doesn't leave marks in burls.
Now where is that chisel

Hand sanding, 3m "Sandblaster"

All my powered sanders are Festool, so Festool abrasives.

Drum sander, Mirka.

My ROS discs and sheets for hand sanding are all Klingspor, and the DS belts I have at the moment are Klingspor (though I have used other DS belts I like just as well). I do intend to try Abranet at some point in the future.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Klingspor all the way.

Mirka for the win for me.
I can't seem to get it for my little 1x30 belt sander though.

Fred,
I think you'll like the abranet.  The abranet seems to allow my dust control to capture virtually all the dust.

I'll tell you one to never use: the red paper from Harbor Freight! Not only does the grit readily come off, but it also dyes the wood you're trying to sand, red?

I use Festool paper on my Festool ROS. Klingspor for turning. Norton 3X sheet stock.
