Has anyone else used Norton's 3X sandpaper? I've just recently started
using this stuff, and WOW! I was pretty skeptical about the "works 3
times faster, lasts 3 times longer" claim, but I'm completely sold.
Very good stuff.
Yep - definitely good stuff. Looking forward to a road trip past a
Woodcraft - their advertised price of $9.99 per box of 20 sheets is the
cheapest I've seen. Though it is nice to have a quality woodworking
product that's (at least usually) stocked by the local borg, even if it
