Abrasive suggestions for RO 125?
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:51 PM »
I managed to snag an RO 125 on the recon site today.  Up til now I've been using Diablo abrasives and Mirka Abranet for my 5" ROSs.  For stripping paint and stock removal  (flooring, decking etc) am I right in looking at the Granat line?

Granat will work for many things , if you need a heavier backed Abrasive, you can always buy some Saphir for a tough stripping /removal job .

 Agree, but I'd also suggest using a hard pad for the lower grits.
