Just go to some hardware stores and find some sandpaper. start with ~400 grit and go up to 2500 grit. The highest I've been able to find in hardware stores is 2000 though.

A guy off here does them, He's in the US but it costs $10 for the kit and like $10 for Int delivery. £10 for a lapping kit, aint so bad TBH you just have to wait 10 day for delivery.

Or just get the following:

Local DIY store should do up to 1200, and you should be able to ask them to order some finer grain.

Then get a small square piece of glass (should also be available at a DIY store) and your set to go!

I find Kustom PCs postage charges are ridiculous TBH, you're probably better off with WCUL
