Ace Posted October 27, 2003 Report Share Posted October 27, 2003 Heya folks, when you (english speaking ppl in general) talk about sanding paper you mention "grit". Although I know the meaning of the word from the context (how fine or coarse your sandpaper is), I have a question about that: Is the number that you give for "grit" the number of "abrasive grains" (I told you the language barrier was coming) per square millimeter? square centimeter? square inch? Or is it just an industrial standard number? Not being the worlds greatest handyman and thus being inexperienced I walked into the tool shop today and noticed that their sandpapers were classified by "grains per square centimeter". Is that the same grit you're using? I don't want to buy sandpaper by the number and then have the wrong one rip through my body like the hot knife through butter, obviously so long ace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
