CR1, yep, I’ve been a hunting but haven’t found anything available down here other than those standard red emery/cloth bands. perhaps I will order some from your side at some point , though results are OK tbh. I usually grind with as coarse a grit as possible, 60 or 80, then I start to “hone” my secondary bevel at 240/280/320 to be sure of removing the scratches. The finer grits tend to heat up very quickly so I prefer to take a little more time and just hog off the bulk on the sander.

Actually seems there is little selection in the 4×36” bands from what I have seen. I guess this size/ type of machine is mainly built for and used by small woodwork shops more than the metalwork people.

Does the job for now anyways and I am already pondering another option.
