I did notice there was 6", but I was with a hungry G/F and she was not in the mood for me to check everything out...

I have been using the Black UltraPower Gator stuff from Lowes, I buy it in the 40 pack bulk for $20. I have been happy with it. It's made with a heavy backing so the disc outlasts the abrasive unlike the norton stuff.

Re: Diablo Sandpaper....


I was just there today getting the adjustable horses and the construction calc, wife was giving me the evil eye as was. Most likely best that I didn't go a a sandpaper buying spree too.

What calc did you get. I have the CM Pro 5

http://www.amazon.com/Calculated-Ind...8643652&sr=8-2

Its the best IMO, The ability to get the Miter/bevel settings by just entering the crown spring angle and the corner angle is PRICELESS.

I can spring crown at whatever angle I want and I will always have the ability to cut it without needing a crown chart.

Was talking to my G/F about girls shopping and she summed it up in a way no one else ever had. Girls go and try on cloths and browse around stores just to look at things the same way I have to look at, touch, feel and play with everything in tool/hardware/supply stores reguardless if I plan on buying it or not. I find it easier to tolorate the long shopping trips now...


They also had the Diablo stuff in grinding discs and god knows what else b/c I spend less then 10 seconds looking at the stuff....I could have wasted 5 min of my life right there trying to figure out what the stuff was, if it was better or just funny colored sandpaper.

Re: Diablo Sandpaper....


I got the CM5 but not the pro version, dunno yet if it does miter/bevel calcs, gotta read the manual this weekend. I do have a bosch digital angle finder for that stuff though although I think I'd be faster with the calc as I have the older version of the bosch and the spring angle has to be set every time.

Hmmm

I have:
Unlimited mobile to mobile
7PM-7AM unlimited land line
7AM-7PM 1500 minutes land line
Unlimited text
Unlimited data; no data cap, no throttling
500 minutes roam phone
200MB roam data

$52/month

Sorry to hijack the sandpaper thread but my point is I have a construction calculator on my phone.

I don't really use sandpaper. Maybe buy 1 pack per year but I like Diablo blades enough that I'd try it.

I'd like to get a smart phone at some point. I'll have to see if I can get a deal. Which service provider are you with?

Re: Diablo Sandpaper....


the packaging for the diablo discs looks almost identical to "gator" sanding discs that rona sells. just recently started using them as their cheaper than north discs that hd sells

My wife jumped right in there and carried the saw horses out for me as I had my hands full with other junk. Of course I had just bought her a nice lunch about a half hour before.

Re: Diablo Sandpaper....


I haven't tried the black Gator paper yet but dont think I will. The red stuff just plain sucks. The velcro looses its grip one the paper warms up and just starts falling off. The norton disks from HD were better, and the HD by me carries 3M pro purple as well.

I would still prefer Klingspor to all others.
