Question Papers

Has anyone tried the polishing papers?

I've never heard of them and ran across them. The reviews are favorable, and the highest micron compares to 8000g.
They seem fairly inexpensive, and I could see them being useful for many projects.

I haven't seen these before. It will be interesting to see if anyone here has used them and shares their experience.

They look similar to some nib polishing papers I picked up at a pen show.

We use a type of plastic sheet at work to polish fiber optics, the finest size we use is 1 micron.
