I prefer Mirka Abralon pads. I don't like to wax a new finish. You'll have to experiment on what grit you prefer to achieve the sheen you want. If some of the specs are big or you have orange peel, you'll still have to use sandpaper to cut them off.
Wow ! I found one here ant it worked very well. Thanks a lot!!
Do you mean Wool-Lube? It's a soap (potash soap), similar to Murphy's Oil Soap. Cut it with water. I use this to lubricate Scotch-Brites, wet/dry sandpapers, and steelwool. I also use a squeegee and terrycloth towels.
If you are doing a lot of tops, it makes sense to try to hunt down an inline sander, single pad or dual pad. Ebay is a good source.
The other day I was trying to de-nib a 4' x 4' desktop. I started out by hand. Silly, I loaded up a Sundstrand SP-101 single pad straight line sander with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper, dipped the pad in a tray filled with Wool-Lube/water and I was done in under ten minutes.
The Wool-Lube introduces no contaminants onto your surfaces. After my de-nibbing, I sprayed my final topcoat.
I think this is the product the furniture factory was using? We used this with 0000 steel wool but it works well with fine wet sanding paper also.
I have not seen it for sale for some time.
That Star Wol-Wax is the potash soap that I referenced in my posting, above.
Dan an Gerry, thank you so much for your time in helping me. Your informacion is helping me a lot. Hugs !!!
