Abrasive set Rotex 150?
« on: September 29, 2018, 01:25 PM »

 I just received my rotex 150.
 Im planning on buying a basic set of abrasive discs and Im looking for advice.

 It will be mostly used for cabinet finishing.
 Prepping for paint and varnish.

 Wat should I order so i don't have to go shopping during every project.

 Some advice tips?

So I usually skip one grit at a time in the lower grits (of Granat) and skip two grits in the higher grits but I use an ETS EC which has a 3mm stroke.  That big Rotex has a 5mm stroke so skipping two grits at a time might not work as well. If it’s me I’d probably start off stocking Granat in 80, 120, 180, 240 and 340 but thats just me. Some may question my suggestion of 80 grit but that grit will come in handy with the Rotex. Flattening a glue joint, comes immediately to mind.
