Tesco Value Sandpaper
Advantages: Great for small jobs, variety of grades, good price
Disadvantages: Wears quickly and rips
I like to make jewellery and recently bought a new beading loom which is a new product on the market and still has a few teething problems, I found that the dowl piece didn;t quite fit into the holes they were meant to fit and therefore I decided to try and sand them down a little rather than having to send the whole thing back.
I bought some sandpaper from tesco and decided just to buy the value one as I wasn't sure if it was going to work anyway and I felt that this one should be adequate for the job. The paper cost me just under £1 and there are 10 sheets in the pack of differing types, fine, medium and course. each sheets of the sandpaper is 22.5 x 27.5cms and I thin the pack is really good value for what you get.
I used the medium paper and found it was easy enough to use and pretty comfortable to hold, the roughness does seem to wear pretty quickly on the sheets and then the sheets rip easily so if I was doing a large job I would probably buy a more durable one.
The job I used this for was only small and it worked well and left the dowel pieces smooth, I have tried using it on a table I want to sand but it doesn't seem to leave a very smooth surface and when I come to do the full table I will be buying a stringer one.
I would recommend this paper for small jobs, the price is great and it does small jobs well, I would say for larger jobs you need stringer paper as it does wear and rip quite quickly so for a large job you would go through too many sheets.
Summary: I'd buy better for a big job but this does the small jobs well
