    Default Waterproof sanding paper

    In local shops I usually have to pay about 2.50 for 3 sheets of waterproof sanding paper. Too expensive imo and I have been looking for a way to save money. I tried cheap sanding paper from Toolstation once but that wasn't suited for lapping stones. Today I ordered 15x5 sheets of Norton sanding paper from Robbelien.nl (120/180/320/600/1000). At only 0.22 excl. per sheet with 2.75 excl. shipping cost

    I bought that many sheets because I was expecting having to pay 7.50 for shipping

    I've also hear over on bladeforums that rhynowet is good stuff. I'm planning on trying that when my 3m runs out. Thanks for sharing!

    They have NORTON and AQUAFLEX PLUS written on the back. I lapped a few stones with them and they work great. They do curl which is annoying so they should be taped down.

    I have 3M 600grit which doesn't curl but I wouldn't know where to get it as cheap as these Nortons.

    Once I've worn out these Nortons, will take a long time, I'll probably get more.

    Edit: the 120grit and 320grit did stay flat on my glass plate just now. The 180grit and the 600grit curl, I haven't tried the 1k yet. The 320grit seems to lap better than the 180grit, I might just skip the 180grit next time.
