I'm finding a great variation in the performance of different sandpapers when sanding a steel practice plate. The best performer so far for me is a generic "shop roll" emery cloth from Amazon. What is even better is a 3M diamond hand hone which is a piece of diamond coated foil attached to a foam block. I use them in my enamel work and they work great to level the glass out. They cut steel well and don't leave too many odd scratches behind. Is there a particular type or brand that you pros use on guns and stuff?
