+1My preferences are SiC for sharpening, ceramic for blade shaping, 3M's Gators for pre-finish on blade, and a combo of ceramic/J-flex for handle work. And let's not forget those wonderful Scotchbrite belts - a must have IMO.
3M's Gators, keep it coolNot to hijack the thread, but I am also interested in this right now. I won't be grinding blades, but next week I am going to be getting a 1" x 30" belt sander. At first I will just be rounding spines with it and other minor jobs. What would be a good belt for that job?
Would you also suggest some of those same belts?
Has anybody used those compound bricks with the felt belts before?and the gators are not a fan of being wet tho it will not kill them
im a blaze guy and then gators then scotchbrite (also ahve felt belts for buffing )
and i keep some cheaper and more flexy belts for handle stuffs
super grit has the felts and theere not cheap but they sure work great
