Default Does Anyone Sell Labeled MicroMesh?

I seem to waste a lot of time trying to match the colors of my MicroMesh to the printed chart. Does anyone make one that is labeled with the grits?

When I buy new pads, the first thing I do is mark the grit with a magic marker on each one. That color coding thing is a pain in the mesh.

I just kind of memorized the colors (after about 100 pens).

When I bought my set, it came with a handy little chart. I stuck it right up on the wall by the lathe. Since I usually wet sand/polish, I have a little drying mat on the bottom shelf of my workbench. I lay out my sandpaper and micromesh in the right order and take and replace the pieces one by one.

This is what I do. Although, I beleive the sheets (not the pads) are already marked.

I found the color chart annoying to look at so I used a sharpie and did a stroke count (hash marks) on the white edge of each pad.

I use a fine magic marker and write the number on all four sides, lasts a long time.

Thanks everyone. I used a Magic Marker on the set I have. Seems like if someone made a pre-marked set they might fine a lot of us would but it.

I use a sharpie to mark mine also. Even with the chart it's much easier with the numbers, at least it is for me. Ted��
