I use 80 and 120. I typically leave the 120 in to remove remaining snipe and chip-out from DeWalt 13 inch planer. I love my 19×38. I have never been successful in getting it truly flat. My brother has the 37×2 about 100 miles away. When necessary, for a really flat surface, he helps me out. I spent several hours using the 80 grit to get to thickness one weekend. Waste of time. Planer does such a great job of getting close. I tend to use Hard Maple. The planer likes to chip it out when the grain is not even. The sander cleans it up. My two cents.
