    Default Linishers - Grit

    Hello chaps,

    What is a good grit for linishing? My belt sander will double up as a linisher, but the 60 grit on it is far too course.

    I'm thinking 120? 180?

    Thanks.

    depends on what you are using it for, I use 60 on mine a lot, because I use it on steel, and I want a high material removal rate

    I bought some 120. I have 60 which as you say removes a lot material. Mostly I just need to do dressing, so the 120 is a good fit. From my supplier in my belt size I can't get any finer than 120 anyway!

    I use a 36 Zircon on mine. It was on special offer. Doesn't half shift material.
