220 3m its a finer sand paper you can take the paint as low as you want with it it works great. You should always prime over a 220 grit scratch. It is the perfect size grit. If you are sanding primer so you can apply topcoat, finish with 400grit dry on a machine (DA) or 500 wet sand for a solid color enamel. Basecoat products, particularly metallics and pearls, need to be applied over a substrate that has been wet sanded with 600 grit.

Where would you find the terms 80 grit 100 grit and 120 grit?

terms used mostly on sand paper, emery cloth, or other fine abrasive materialYou should always know the type of wood you are finishing before starting any sanding. The type of wood you are sanding has a direct relationship to the grit used for final sanding. There are two basic types of wood - softwoods and hardwoods.Typical softwoods are Pine and Fir. Softwoods can be finish sanded with 150 or 180 grit prior to the application of primer. Please see Grit Guide for more information:Grit GuideVery Fine (220) For light sanding between stain and sealer. Fine (150-180) For final sanding or cleaning of wood surfaces. Medium (100-120) For moderate removal of surface imperfections. Course (60-80) For heavy removal of wood and coatings. * http://www.nortonconsumer.com/Data/Element/Node/Application/Application_edit.asp?ele_ch_id=A0000000000000001555"What are the grit sizes equivalent to?"

How do you use sandpaper on wood?

Take a piece of sandpaper and rip it to a size that will fit comfortably in your hand. fold it in half to get a better grip in it. If you are sanding corners, place the sandpaper in your hand such that the corner on the wood rests on the inside of your thumb with the sandpaper between. Run the sandpaper back and forth on the corner until the corner is sanded to the desired look. To sand a surface, either use a sandpaper block, or take a piece of sandpaper roughly twice the size of your palm, for it in half and run it on the wood in straight motions that go with the grain of the wood, with your hand, until the wood is the desired thickness. If by your question you meant "What grade sandpaper should I use on wood," the answer depend on what you want to do. To remove a lot of wood fast, use 60 or 70 grit sandpaper. For the final light shaping use 100 or 120, and to produce a perfect finish at the end use 220 or 240 grit.

What kind of primer do you need to use to cover a oil based paint?

This depends in large part on what paint or finish your are going to cover your oil-finish with. First, you need to determine, if possible, if your existing oil paint contains lead. If the oil paint is over 30 years old, you should assume that it has lead and the paint should be removed before continuing. (See your local codes). If you are painting the surface with an oil-based paint, simply rough up your surface with 220-grit sandpaper, clean and paint away. If you are covering your finish with latex, you should scuff the finish with 220-grit sandpaper, clean it well and apply two coats of latex primer before applying your final coats of paint. If you are applying wallpaper, we suggest that you scuff up your oil finish, apply two coats of latex primer and allow it to dry for at least 3 days before papering.


Do you use a sanding sealer before staining?

absolutely not. if you use a sanding sealer before you stain, then there isn't any wood fibers for the stain to absorb into. that will leave you with a smeary stained surface. apply stain the sanding sealer to seal in the stain and prevent it from bleeding to the final finish.


How do you paint with primer paint?

You make sure your surface is clean and dry then roll the primer on. I prefer to use a heavy body primer like Kilz then I don't have to re-coat. One coat of a good primer does it all. Paying a little extra for a good primer can save you lots in the final paint.

Can you use primer as a finish coat?

You don't specify on what material you are using the primer on.In either case primer is paint that is made to seal and bond to the material you are painting, which in turn helps the regulat paint to bond. You CAN use primer as a final coat but the primer won't give you the hardness that a paint will or the shine, but there is no reason that you can't use it. Depends on the look you want. Hope this helps


How do you mud drywall joints?

You tape the seams with either paper or fibre tape and then apply mud as smoothly as you can to cover the tape and leave a surface level with the board. At this first application mud is applied after mixing it smooth and put on with an 8 or 12 inch metal spreader. In about 3 days it will have dried enough for a first sanding. After this first sanding, more mud will be applied in the depressions and valleys. About 2-3 days later the second and possibly final sanding will take place. The aim is to see no difference between the places where seams are and the rest of the board. The slightest imperfection you can see at this stage will look far worse under primer.

How do you wet sand dry wall?

Technically its not sanding, because sand paper is not used. Use a wet sponge and rub the dried mud. It will dampen the mud and smear it around effectively feathering it out and filling in some gaps. Since the sponge is not stiff or flat like a sanding block, you may still have high and low spots in the seams. I prefer to sponge 'sand' on the first go around so I don't damage the tape and feather out the edges. Then do a final 'real' sanding to get rid of the high spots.


Can you use flat latex paint as a primer on pre-stained oak railings?

not a good idea. you really need to sand off as much of any of the finish (urethane) as possible. try to have the railing dulled out from the sanding. now use a very good oil-based stain covering primer (Kilzs or Zinzer). these won't allow the stain to leach thru to the paint. after priming give the railing a light sand with 220 grit sand paper. then paint on first coat (oil based) paint. let it fully cure (at least 8hrs), then lightly sand with 220 grit sand paper. finally put on your final coat of paint. I world advise you to thin the final coat with penatol so the paint floats out better. your project with look great and last a very long time. good luck


How to prep finish wood to paint with oil base paint?

Use a good quality primer that is intended for all paints or for oil based paints. You might want to use a tintable primer (Killz for example), and have it tinted to approximate your final paint color. That gives much better chances of painting in one coat.

How much does it cost to paint your guitar?

The cost will depend on what guitar it is and what colour/pattern you want on your guitar It can vary to anything between the cost of sandpaper and a couple cans of gloss paint ($20) to a final cost that will likely be several times the original value of the guitar.Sandpaper is cheap. Even on a full-scale project, the cost shouldn't exceed more than about 20 dollars. (It's the sanding itself that's costly: in time spent. Expect to spend a couple weeks if you want to get down to the wood.)Paint is not cheap. If you sand down to the wood, then you're going to have to re-fill the grain when you start priming. This will take a very, very long time (involving laying coats, sanding, laying coats, sanding, etc). Expect to go through several cans of primer (if you're using aerosol), which equals out to upwards of over a quart. Each 12oz can will cost about $6 or more.If you're consistently sanding after every cycle, you should be able to still keep the thickness down. You want to fill the grain, not give the guitar an inch-thick coat of armor. A thinner overall coat of paint on the guitar will translate to slightly better tonal quality.But we haven't even got to the actual paint yet. If you want a mediocre finish, you can stick with aerosol and put down a can or three's worth of metallic or flat colored paint. That should bring the price up another 15-20 on top of everything else. Then you need to put a lacquer on top of everything (It's got to be lacquer. A regular clear coat may not be tough enough for a guitar). You want to put a lot on, but carefully of course. There's another 20 or more dollars. If you want it done right, you'll find someone who has professional painting equipment. You'll use a water-based primer/sealer, so you can use airbrush paints that allow you to do things like layering transparent colors over a aluminum metallic base and what-not. Then a high-end lacquer can seal everything up. All that just made the price of paint jump up to anywhere between a hundred and several hundred dollars (more if you have to hire someone to do all this for you).So! Yeah. Not so simple a question to answer.Crappy job: $30 Mediocre job: $70 - 100 Doin' it right: $150 - (hundreds or thousands if professionally done).
