hi guys a bit stuck at the moment sanding African blackwood, doing the grits from 60-120=240-400 all on a sandmaster at about 1200rpm. then 600 clothback and to finish with a micro paper. tried 3 or 4 times but keep getting very faint lines. all comments welcome.

regards mike

hi Michal

have you tried the micromesh and water as the water lubricates and polishes. I do this with my pens down to 12000 grit. hope this helps.
