Starting grit for mirror polishing.
500grit was what I started with but as I progressed through the rest I realized that it wasn't quite rough enough to remove the deepest scratches from the spine rounding (which I used a Bester 220 for). I went back with 400 (actually a flattening stone, not micro mesh pads) and the result was much better after I went through the micromesh progression. When I have some more time I will flatten my Bester 220 and start from there. PS - I would post a pic but my interpretation of the rules is that the Admin will boot me for posting a picture. Admin - correct me if I am wrong?
