My video and CPU homemade blocks are done


I bought a multi pack of sandpaper.. It said on the back there grits, from 220 up to 1500..
Although, I didn't catch, on the front it only goes up to 600


Would 600 be fine? Im completly broke...
What if I kept sanding in the same spot on the sand paper with both blocks, so it wears some of the grits down?

You could try wearing down the sand paper but I dont think it's gonna work all the way down to mirror finish...

600 is like the paper you use to start, it scratches the surface. From 600-2000 is quite a difference, you can barely feel the grits on the 2000 when you feel it with your fingers.

BTW, good job making your own blocks. Cant wait to see how they work.

At autoparts stores, they sell this little package of assorted sand paper that goes all the way up to 200 gritt and it's only like 4 bucks, might be worth looking into.
