    How can I buy more than just one at a time without spending like $8ea? Know of any sources? Or know of any of better quality or finer grit? They are the best and finest of grit I know.

    The Dremel 425 emery disks are a much finer grit and harder rubber than anything CC has.

    Not to sound smart...or stupid or whatever, but I assume you mean with sand paper in the split mandrel? I've been meaning to make me one of those.

    Great link, lots of stuff to choose from. I like using the extry fine disks for chamfering ports or polishing after chamfering.

    Dunno how y'all feel about buying direct from China, but Richontools has some pretty good prices on carbide burrs and other abrasive consumables.

    When given the choice between buying Chinese cheap goods direct, vs. buying them marked up a whole lot from a local (or at least, in Country!) store, I'll save the bucks.

    Ebay is worth a look too. Couple or three different vendors on there clearing out auction random lots, some pretty decent stuff rolls through.

    I bought a bunch of 1/4” rolls off eBay once and they fit the CC mandrel. The 80 grit would do an exhaust port in one roll before switching to a fiber grit for a more polished look

    Can buy on eBay pre-made. Not worth the trouble of trying to slot a .125 piece of metal.

    And yes, sand paper. I find the new style 3M paper with the clear plastic backing works very well. So well that I rarely go to the Cratex.

    You can buy Cratex shapes like cones and bullets and use an old grinding wheel to shape them if you want .Cratex won't load up like sand paper and comes in different abrasive grades depending on what you want to do .
    At one time I used felt fobs and compound as I thought a smoother finish was in order which it's really not .Fact if you read MacDizzy and others some times it's counter productive .
    I've got the catalogs McMaster -Carr had,old ones .However in going to their web site had a hard time finding the section covering Cratex and when I did noticed the price has increased .It's been at least 10 years since I bought any .The question is exactly where did I put them ?
