    Do you use damp cloth after each grit/round?

    After little buff by hand and ready steady go.

    But I aint no mass producer, just a pendehito [if you translate literally]
    Not disputing the fact you're a pendejito just the way you spelled it.

    If buffing out on a wheel, anything over 400/600 is wasted on stabilized wood imo. If there are scratches, you missed a bit at a lower grit. I'll often buff then go back to a 400g belt, then re-buff.
    To get an equal shine by hand, would be the full set of micromesh up to 12,000.

    Don't use sand paper it tends to scratch, foam sanding pads blend way bette. Just search Norton 3x. And fishish with 0000 steel wool.

    I don't bother with anything higher than 400 for most purposes. I like the results of 400 grit lapping and then touched to the buffing wheel. All of the 400 grit scratches vanish immediately--just like any scratches of higher grit paper would have. No need to go higher if I'm doing a handle with that finish. The exception is when I'm using tru-oil and "wet"-sanding stabilized wood. At that point, I find that 1000 grit paper works great.
