Precision abrasives make the difference! This special package of 22 sheets will win you over to the benefits of precision-graded papers!

Typical hardware-store sandpaper contains irregular grit particles, causing scratches and slowing your work. Gold Fre-Cut and micro finishing papers have precisely uniform abrasives, are fast-cutting, and leave the smooth, scratch-free surface that professionals demand.

Sampler package includes:

3M Gold Fre-Cut Sandpaper
Two 9" x 11" sheets of each grit:
150, 220, 320, 400, 600, 800
Micro finishing paper
Two 9" x 5-1/2" sheets of each grit:
800, 1000, 1200, 1500, and 2000

These papers are graded on the "P-scale," indicating a truly uniform cutting surface (read about abrasive grading scales in our Finishing Step-by-Step book). This selection of 22 sheets will stock your shop with every grit you need for professional finishing.

3M Gold Fre-Cut Sandpapers are luthiers' favorite papers for dry sanding. The premium aluminum oxide abrasive cuts fast and resists clogging, for better efficiency. Treated to help prevent "fisheyes" (cratering) in waterbase finishes. These papers last longer—we use them in our own shops.
Individual sheets also available.

Micro finishing papers are abrasives for water-sanding scratch-free finishes. Grit particles are uniform in size, virtually eliminating sanding scratches. Perfect for modern polyester finishes or traditional lacquered surfaces.
Individual sheets also available.

After sanding, use ColorTone Polishing Compounds to complete the high gloss.

This is a good way to buy finishing paper, I need a little bit of everything and that's just what you get - for a good price - and fine quality paper. The 3m paper sands metal real well also.

way better than the basic stuff!

Wow. I used some of the 150 to sand down a bone saddle and was amazed at how the bone dust just blew off the paper when I was finished. Only left a few scratch marks on the sheet, too. Seems like this stuff will last a long time. I'm used to having to throw the cheap stuff away after one use.

I don't think I've had better than this. It's a great package to get if you are not doing a whole lot of polishing. And, as many say, it serves longer than what I can find in local hardware stores.

It actually surprised me how little these papers clogged. very good, but expensive.
