Well I used to sell sandpaper, however, your question is too general to answer. What are you sanding? wood? metal? fiberglass? removing rust, paint? What kind of a finish are you looking for? Are you planning on using a machine or sand by hand to accomplish your project. Please give more specifics.

What type of surface are you sanding? When we refinished a house we lived in a LONG time ago we had to sheet roc the whole house.. After one day of mess and sneezing we opted to use a damp spong to smooth out the rough areas. It looked professional. And it was ALOT less messy.

Not sure what you need to sand but I recently was given a Microplane Stainless Steel Discs at a trade show and tried it out and it really cut down the sanding time, not too mention I didn't need to change out like tradiditional sandpaper. I ony used the medium but I think they have other grits too.
