    In response to enj is a good source of sand paper at a reasonable price. $50 minimum order though.

That's where I buy the 3M and Klingspor belts.

Keep in mind, 1200 grit is 9 micron, 500 grit is 20 micron. The belts are labeled in grit on the site, but will come with the appropriate micron labeling on the underside of the belt. These are the exact belts I use. I also follow with 2 different compounds on leather belts that you can also pick up from the website.

I have all the 3M belts from 80 microns on down, including the 15 that is listed separately.

But I finish manually on leather loaded with grinding compound on a wooden paddle.

Just another (slower) way of doing the same thing with leather belts on the machine.

I have also tried the compound on buffing wheels on a bench grinder, but I need more practice. My touch is too heavy.
