Not sure where to put this (sandpaper for lapping)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some sandpaper in the UK so I can lap my processor and heatsink.

Basically, there are loads of different types, do I want Glass paper or aluminium oxide or what?

Thanks

either would do as long as you start with a fairly low grit and work up to the higher grits

Cool beans,

I actually found some 600 - 2500 grit sandpaper at halfords, apparently you use it in body work repairs :S
