    Default #4/0 Emery paper

    Would anyone know where I can buy some #4/0 Emery paper? I prefer to make my own buff sticks to use, I'd like to find just the paper.

    Thanks,

    Thanks guys, appreciate the quick replies. Looks like Shore Intl has the Fine #4/0 I'm looking for. If anyone wants to know I use this material for the final buff on clock pivots.

    Regards,

    Maybe I'm just looking on the negative side -- but maybe there are fewer and fewer craftsmen left, those of us that care enough to do it right, to keep our favorite suppliers in business.

    Yes ken there are perhaps fewer people but many reasons why businesses shut down.

    Forgive my dumbness please, but what is #4/0 emery? Is this paper with the abrasive quality of 0000 steel wool?

    No pun intended Scottie but its the "cats meow" for finishing pivots. at least for me

    If I were to guess 0000 steel wool would be 1000-1500 grit. #4/0 emery paper is 2000 grit. This is my guess from buying the two from time to time.

    Indeed it is the cat's "me - OW!". I use 2500 made by 3M.
    I just never read of an abrasive paper thus described.
    Interesting tho - 0000? I believe it may be less abrasive than 2500 as when polishing brass, it removes scratches left by 2500, prior to polishing. Simichrome then removes scratches left by 0000, so it may be around 6000 or higher.

    Wow - I was just going to ask the same thing. Thanks, Jim.

    What grit is crocus cloth? Along with my emery paper assortment I bought some crocus cloth, which I use for my FINAL FINAL treatment on clock pivots. It just feels like paper, though. Hard to believe it's actually abrasive.
    Does it have a grit number?

    One thing I have noticed. I bought some 3M 2000 grit yesterday and compared it to one of the buff sticks I bought from R&M which were "fine" #4/0 and it was a little smoother than the 3M 2000 grit.
