I thought I would bump this thread because I just upgraded (hopefully) from a JET 16-32 to the Supermax 19-38 and the guy at Rockler was asking what grit I used.

I won’t run through the grits like I do with the RAS. I will however only use as course as I need to get the job done. Then I’ll load the finest I have like a 220 and make a few passes. The lines will still be there, but the deep grooves will not. It will feel smooth to the touch so all my RAS has to do is get rid of the lines. Usually I can start with 150 or 180 and a few minutes of sanding I’m golden. Cuts the sanding time dramatically.
