Sandpaper Grades

I will be buying three rolls of adhesive backed sandpaper. I am thinking of 80, 120 and 220 grades. What grades would you experienced woodworkers recommend to have on hand?

Sandpaper Grades

You can never be too rich, too thin, or have to much sandpaper. Personally I have 40 grit through 600 grit (the 600 grit is wet or dry silicon carbide). Great stuff.

Sandpaper Grades

Heck I go from 40 to 12000. The 12k is for polishing pens that I make.
