      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Need specialty sandpaper

Recommended Posts

Ok, what I thought was an easy question but I don't seem able to find the size paper I need.

 

I just ordered an air file that is 16 inches in length, viking V100, for fairing the hulls and decks of two boats I am working on. I went to order sandpaper and cannot seem to find any long enought for this file. I saw it had clip on attachments for the paper which seems easier than contact adhesive.

 

Who should I contact?

you didn't specify the width you're after, however, I get more than great mileage from stainless steel linishing belts and a standard Makita runs a 610x100mm belt(24"x4"), go for a good grade,and available in a wide variety of grits and shapes/types grab one and try it, ask your local stainless guys where they buy abrasives etc from

Perhaps it is A higher power's intervention.
